Daniel Renfroe
Daniel Renfroe
Class of 1992
Navy, 15 Years

I am a salvage construction, demolition, barrel chested, beer drinking motor cycle riding piano playing, ball room dancing deep sea diver..
I joined the navy in october 1995, Since then I have had the best times of my life. I trained to be a builder in the seabees and later found it to be a repetitive boring job so I put in a dive package and have been diving for over 10 years now. I have the best job in the navy and would not trade it for any other.
The deepest I have dove is to 190' yes I have swam with sharks, I don't get claustrophobic, my greatest fear is drowning, most Jobs I do are top secret, I have seen dead bodies in the water and recovered their remains, I have been to war in support of our countries missions overseas, I do not like going to the Philippines I think that country is nasty, two of my favorite places on earth are kauai hawaii and ascension island in the atlantic. Favorite cultures visited are japan and Native Niihau hawaiians.
Im patriotic to the point of obsession because I have seen countries with no declaration of independence who kill to cleanse the earth based on religion and have no respect for human life male or female, support your country carry a gun, vote, vote, vote or we will end up with another president who wants to destroy america and her values.
