4 years ago I went from MIDN to Ensign.
It’s been almost five and a half years since these photos. I’ve learned a lot in those years, both good and bad. I had some of the lowest lows and highest highs in that time as well. Still, after all the “life experiences” I went through while serving, I wouldn’t change or trade it for anything in the world. I grew a lot and learned a lot about myself. I miss my military life more than I thought I would but I’m grateful for the time I had. Thank you to everyone (friends, family, and strangers alike) for your support. It made the rough times easier to get through.
