Ron joined the Navy right after high school, following in his father's footseps. He stayed with the Navy for a little over 9 years as an Electronics Technician/Reactor Operator, achieving the rank of E-6 before leaving to pursue a family life and higher education. Ron has a wonderful wife, a 3 year old son, and another son due very soon. He currently works as an engineering support technician in the telecommunications industry, specifically cellular infrastructure. Ron will finish his BSEE in December of this year and plans to continue on with an MBA. While he didn't stay in the Navy long enough to get the carrot, Ron still feels a certain connection to the military and respects anyone willing to sacrifice their life to keep our country free.
