Class of 1988
Navy, 8 Years

I served as an Operations Specialist and Recruiter during the years of 1988 - 1996. I had the pleasure of visiting more than 30 countries onboard the USS Barbour County (LST-1195) and USS Tarawa (LHA-1). Aboard the USS Barbour County I had the unfortunate pleasure of serving in the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm.

I wouldn't trade my memories in the US Navy or attending West Charlotte High School for any amount of money. Each experience taught me so much about myself and life.
