Captain Nicholas H. Millward, United States Marine Corps, currently serves as the Executive Officer for Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team Pacific. He graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 2014, with a degree in International Studies. After Commissioning in the USMC, he was stationed at 2d Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He deployed with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) and assumed Company Command upon his return. He then requested to be stationed in Japan in order to increase his situational understanding of this dynamic area of operations. Nick endeavors to travel around the INDOPACOM area of operations as frequently as possible, expanding his understanding of the unique relationships in South and Far East Asia. Recognizing the value of cooperative diplomacy and respect, Nick is striving to construct solid relationships with like-minded individuals.

While coordinating with US Embassies in the Asia-Pacific Region, he traveled to Mongolia and lived with the nomads for a short time. Upon returning to Japan, Nick partnered with a local Mongolian family and multiple homeless shelters in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in order to provide clothes, blankets, and shoes for the shelters. In July 2020, Mongolia suffered devastating flash floods that left thousands of families homeless. The Mongolia Connect project raised over $10k, has purchased 3 homes (gers) and sent over 200 boxes of supplies to 4 districts in Mongolia. Nick’s passion for preserving nomadic communities on the periphery inspired him to apply for the Rotary Peace Fellowship at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.
