I am the proud daughter of US Naval Academy graduate. My father flew the unmanned drone on the USS Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis. My husband's father flew fighter jets for the US Navy and gave his life while serving. We are proud parents of a son that feels the same strong ties to the Navy that our Father's feel/felt. I am proud of our son and look forward to being a Navy Mom.
