Hello my friends, this is Ross and welcome to Live Love Play’s first live (as in living) blog. In this series of blogs I will be sharing experiences, adventures, and sea stories that I hope you all find entertaining. Today I want to share a more general story, a period of time that has dominated my life and shaped who I have become so far. My reflection of service in the US Navy.
I enlisted in the Navy straight out of high school. I knew that it was what I wanted to do very early on in life. Inspiration came from many places, first and foremost, being a family legacy: My grandfathers served in World War Two, my Mother’s Father in the Army and my Father’s Father in the Navy. My father also served in both the Air Force during Vietnam and the Naval Reserve after I was born. I will always feel a great sense of awe and respect for those who have served before me.
