"I've been an Officer in the United States Navy for the past seven years. There have been plenty of up's and down's with many challenges along the way. I am transitioning out of the military not because of lack of respect for the job but I have reached the point in my career that I know it is time to move on. I would have to stay in for a minimum of five more years and all of those are out at sea and deployable, which is not what I want. I am looking to start a family and being away from my fiancee for a long period of time is something I am not looking for at this point."

Can grow at your own pace depending on what you do to set yourself apart from the rest while still helping others excel."
"I spent six years working for the Navy. The skills and experience I gained were second to none. I joined as a boy with little to no work ethic and I came out a man with a family and the drive to succeed. No challenge a new job can throw at me will compare to what I overcame in the Navy. No for the weak of heart or soft skinned."
