Chief Petty Officer Michael Rios is a graduate of Estacado High and serves on the USS Tennessee, Gold Crew.  The USS Tennessee is a ballistic submarine and that means serious business. According to the press release, these subs serve as an "undetectable launch platforms for intercontinental ballistic missiles".

Now keep in mind that a job on a submarine isn't like any other job. No matter what you do, you have to learn everything you can about submarines first, then head onto your specialty.  Rios is a logistics specialist who the crew counts on for supplies, parts and keeping the sub on the budget.
