Commander Daniel A. Boutros, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 2001 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in aerospace engineering. After commissioning, he stayed on at the Academy as part of a team that built and launched the school’s first satellite into space. He then reported to flight school, earning his Naval aviator wings as a helicopter pilot in 2003.

Commander Boutros qualified in the SH-60F and HH-60H and flew with the “Tridents” of HS-3 out of NAS Jacksonville, Florida. He deployed with Carrier Airwing EIGHT aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71), where he flew combat missions in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM and Operation TELIC with British Forces as part of the Joint Helicopter Force in Basra, Iraq. In 2010 he was assigned to the newly commissioned USS Makin Island (LHD 8) for his disassociated sea tour as a member of the air department. He then joined the HS-14 “Chargers” attached to Carrier Airwing FIVE forward deployed in Atsugi, Japan, and deployed aboard USS George Washington (CVN 73). During that tour he served as department head in the administrative, maintenance, and operations departments, while the squadron underwent a permanent duty station change from Japan to CONUS and transitioned from the legacy SH-60F and HH-60H airframes to the MH-60S.

Commander Boutros’s shore assignments were with HT-18 as an instructor pilot at NAS Whiting Field, FL, the College of Naval Command and Staff in Newport, Rhode Island where he earned a Master’s of Arts degree in national security and strategic studies, and on the staff of United States Special Operations Command as basing and posture branch chief.


Commander Boutros has accumulated over 3,100 flight hours. His personal awards include the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal with Strike Flight Award, the Navy-Marine Corps Commendation Medal with two gold stars, the Joint Service Achievement Medal, and the Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal with 2 gold stars.
