Advice for a future sailor in the WORLDS GREATEST NAVY!!!! CAN I GET A HOOYAH!??!?

First off I just want to say thank you for your commitment. That’s the first step in the long road ahead of you come February. So advice you know people ask this a lot and honestly it’s all about attitude. The thing with the navy is that it’s not always gonna be happy fun times. There will be days where you absolutely hate it but you have to hold on to the reason why you joined. We all have our reasons and no matter how much you feel that your job isn’t helping the cause know that you’re wrong and that every single person helps contribute to the navy fighting machine. So stay positive stay motivated and always be the guy that people go to for help be a Rick star cause if your gonna come in and do the bare minimum what’s the point? So bud my advice to you if I give you any is go big or go home.

If you have any other questions please ask away!

HOOYAH!

It is my absolute pleasure. We have the greatest supporters the world has ever seen so thank you for that.

I hope that you do too. It’s a decision I could never regret or take back. Just keep focused and remember even when the sky is the limit, there’s a whole lot more space beyond that ;)

It’s my pleasure. As I always say thank you for the support it always reminds me why I do what I do. So in reality thank you.

Closest to the Heart.

We all have things we hold close to our hearts. People,things,memories even. For most of us in the military we have those things that remind us everyday why we do what we do. That it all has a greater purpose and meaning. Well for me I keep two of those things literally close to my heart. My Texas flag that reminds me of all those I have back home waiting hoping and prying for my safety that loved and cared for me my whole life. And one of my favorite bible verses that says just what our men and women in uniform do. Rescue the weak and deliver them from the hand of the wicked. I’m a sailor in the United States Navy and today on the anniversary of September 11th I have a message to all those terrorist out there. FEAR is a four letter word that doesn’t mean a damn thing to the men women and children of my great nation. You failed to strike terror in our hearts instead you sparked the very fuel that is the American heart and soul and now you’re paying the price so, sleep well cause your days are numbered.

God bless our Sailors
God bless our Marines
God bless our Soldiers 
God bless our Airmen 

And of course…

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

The Flag.


So many years ago before my adventure with the navy started I rocked the bass guitar with a band called “Junes Not Faking” a pop punk band from where I lived. I could never tell you how much fun we had together and the memories we made it was great. So this picture is of the navy flag they put up in the garage where they practice in honor of me. These guys have always supported me and for that I owe them the world. Their my friends my role modes and my brothers. JNF4Life

Moving Forward.

It’s not easy.. To leave something that you made into a home to turn and say goodbye to people that were once strangers and now you call family. I’ve always lived my life saying “see you later” rather than goodbye because it is just that… So as I prepare to leave 7th Fleet I just want to say thank you to all of you that have given me countless lessons, adventures, and memories ill cherish till the end of my life thank you for being my teachers, mentors, friends, and MY NAVY FAMILY.


Fair winds, and following seas..

22.

Birthdays have always been weird for me after 18 to most it’s just another day. But at the same time it lets you know that you’re doing ok. You made it through another 365 days. I’ve encountered plenty of moments that could have broke my record but I managed to pull through. And so here I am. I’m Malcolm j Clinton better known as the barracuda of the pacific. Now 22 years down a lifetime to go.


Damn I’m getting old
