Why did you decide to join the military?
I grew up pulling crab traps with my dad in North Florida. I did not even consider college an option at the time. Growing up in a fishing/boating town, I saw the U.S. Coast Guard in action every day. I knew I wanted to get out of my hometown and seek out new adventures, but little did I know I would find myself moving to Alaska at 18 years old. I didn’t even own a winter coat.
