For his service he was awarded a Bronze Star medal and two Army Commendation Awards with "V" device.

Due to his considerable expertise, he authored several publications throughout his career, including "Particle Simulation of Electron Beams with Self-Consistent Magnetic Fields," "Computer Simulation of Ion Trapping and Detrapping in a PPM Focused Traveling Wave Tube" and "Transient Ion Disturbances in Traveling Wave Tubes."

Before entering the U.S. Army, Mr. Thorington earned a Bachelor of Science in physics from the University of California Santa Barbara, after which he received a Master of Science in physics from California State University Los Angeles and pursued doctoral coursework in plasma physics at UCLA. Outside of his work, he aligns himself with the American Physical Society and the Society of Physics Students. Additionally, Mr. Thorington devotes himself to fellow veterans as an active member of Wounded Warriors.

In a career that has been filled with highlights, Mr. Thorington is most proud to have written software that detected radar hotspots on the B-2 Bomber. When it was first being flight tested, a radar hot spot indicated problems. Due to the political demands on the bomber, it had to be fixed or face cancellation. With the help of Mr. Thorington's software, the issue was identified and resolved both quickly and inexpensively. For his outstanding body of work, he also received a Technical Excellence Award through Hughes Electronics and an Outstanding Paper of the Year Award through Hughes Research Laboratories. In the coming years, Mr. Thorington aims to continue fostering his love of economics and politics through his blog,
