Highlights of career: A highlight from my Military career would have to be my time as a Recruit Division Commander and my deployment to Uganda, Africa. Not many people in the world get a chance to train the future of the Navy. I had the opportunity to personally train our future military. The ones that will be taking my place protecting this country. I had the chance to meet, train, and get to know over 800 recruits, ranging from Navy SEAL candidates to Nuclear Technicians. It was a very unique experience that I will never forget. During my time in Uganda, My team and I would go out repairing schools and houses damaged in storms. To see the living conditions they were living in their whole lives, makes you appreciate the little luxuries we do have.
Best body parts: Hmmm, well I would personally like to think my Delts, but everyone keeps mentioning my calves?
