Do you wonder what life as a Naval Academy graduate like. You’ve gotten through one of the toughest schools in the country.

Sometimes I look down and realize I’m wearing fire-retardant coveralls, combat boots, a hard hat, and safety glasses and think to myself, “what the HELL am I doing with my life?!?”
