How have you benefited from your service in the Navy Reserve?
Why did you choose to join the Navy Reserve?
In my Navy…
alex grey research paper the culture continues to shift affording Sailors unparalleled opportunities for education, travel, unique collateral duties and expansive leadership. It is an exciting and empowering time to serve as a female Sailor and as one who loves education. I recognize and appreciate that Navy leadership, and Navy Reserve Leadership in particular, expects Sailors to maintain the highest levels of proficiency, meanwhile providing ample platforms to integrate knowledge and expertise locally and globally. This is also the best time to be a female Sailor in the Navy Reserve and to witness the accomplishments of fellow Sailors reaching the highest levels of leadership and service, such as Submarine service, that was previously inaccessible to women. I wear my uniform with pride and am so very thankful to be a part of the Navy Reserve. I believe all Sailors serve as ambassadors to present and future generations and that it is our responsibility to carry our best selves forward and inspire the same in others, just by being a member of the United States Navy.
