Anonymous said: What do you think of enlisting in the reserves while in college (my university doesn't offer NROTC) as compared to enlisting after college and applying to be an officer??? Any suggestions/opinions/advice?

well hmm not really sure. honeslty id go to school then go OCS cause thats the best way in my opinon to go about it. then again NROTC gives you good structure and guidence. tough call really.

Anonymous said: Hey :) I've been thinking about joining the Navy for quite a long time now and this is my last year of high school. Would it be better joining the Navy first or doing nursing school and joining it after all of my schooling?

I see. Well that’s solely a personal decision. You could do either but it comes down to what you want cause both decisions are about the same. Of course I’m bias towards the navy because its given me such a great life and put me where I want to go but maybe you wanna stick around where you are from for a lol while you know? Plus In the navy you have to be in for a year before they pay for classes so like I said either is good and its up to you.

We are SAILORS

I am fate with a Dixie cup and a ship. Behind my ship is a heart like yours. I bleed. I think. I love. And yes, I can be killed. And although I’m but one man, I have thousands of brothers and sisters who are the same as me. They will lay down their lives for me. And I them. We stand watch together. A thin blue line. Protecting the prey from the predators. The good from the bad. We are the worlds finest Navy.
We are Sailors….


Took this from a movie a changed it up a bit but it’s still pretty deep.

So to all my future sailors who are following and nervous about leaving home… I promise you that if you’re patient and open you can meet family you never knew you had. So here’s to my friends, my brothers, MY NAVY FAMILY.

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!

That’s awesome. Trust me when I say it being motivated is something our navy needs. Just keep the drive keep the spirit an you cannot go wrong I promise. And of course thank you for you support means the world to me and my fellow shipmates. I hope one day I can call you ship mate ;) if you need anything feel free to ask.

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!
