You face some high-tempo, high-stress situations where you have to learn to adapt and overcome and I think when you first start out, you see yourself pass each obstacle and then get to the other side and you turn around and are pretty amazed at what you’ve done.

The coolest part of the job from my perspective is when we’re on the bridge. I love radio communications and relaying messages from other ships to the officer of the watch.

I love sitting down and doing the fire control aspect, seeing those rounds go downrange – seeing the splash as it hits the target is really exciting.
