Another West Texan Rocks On the High Seas
If I had these every day, I would post these every day.
Taking just a minute to recognize the service of a local is the least we can do.
Today we're dropping some knucks on Damage Controlman 3rd Class Daniel Hernandez, who hails from just outside of the Hub in Tahoka, Texas. While a lot of this terminology is lost on me, Daniel must be a big shot because he's the guy on the right inspecting Damage Controlman 2nd Class Marcus Shannon's work. (You can't trust people from Michigan!)
Hernandez joins a long list of folks from Lubbock who've joined the U.S. Navy. I'm still perplexed as to whether the Navy does the most recruiting in Lubbock or is the best at publicizing the recruits after they've enlisted.
We'd like to wish Hernandez well on his trip on the high seas and thank his family for loaning us their kid for service in the U.S. Armed Forces. It's a very noble thing that all of you are doing, and you deserve all of the thanks that we can muster up.
Here's the scoop on Daniel Hernandez from the U.S. Navy.
