Van Buskirk was nominated for rear admiral last March.A native of California, he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1979 with a degree in management technology, and after nuclear training was assigned to the USS Seawolf, SSN 575, from 1981-84, where he started out as a junior officer but advanced to weapons officer before leaving the boat.
He served tours as engineer on the USS Salt Lake City, SSN 716, and as navigator and operations officer on the USS Tunny, SSN 682, before he served as executive officer on the USS Georgia, SSBN 729, from 1992-94.

Van Buskirk heads to Norfolk where he will be the chief of staff to the commander of naval submarine forces, an assignment that seems to indicate he is on a rapid advancement path.
"Now, every submarine is capable of being a unique platform, as they get the new systems," Van Buskirk said."So we go to whatever boat has the equipment."
Rear Adm.Michael C. Tracy, the commander of Submarine Group Two, said Van Buskirk spearheaded an overhaul of sonar search processes, as well as development of new periscope search procedures.
Van Buskirk said his record is a testament to the professionals who work at Devron, people like Lt.Cmdr.Drew St. John who, with almost no notice, deployed as the engineering officer on one of the squadron's submarines so the engineer could stay behind with a sick child.
The nonuniformed staff brings unique expertise to the process as well, he said.
"You've never seen a group that so impacts the whole Navy on a daily basis," Van Buskirk said.
He predicted that the pace of change is not going to slow, but that will make the job even more rewarding.
"I don't know if submarining will be different 10 years from now, but our capabilities will change, giving the theater commanders more options," Van Buskirk said."I think we'll be even more in demand than we are now because of what we can do."
