Dennis Harris Of The US Navy

A job well done for a military member can mean a lot of different things.
For our troop today, it means the successful completion of a 9 year military career.

Today we salute Machinists Mate 2nd Class Dennis Harris of the United States Navy.

Dennis just mustered out of the Navy recently. His last day of service was July 12th according to his wife Alicia who wrote in for this salute.

Alicia is obviously very proud of her husband for his service and his hard work, but she wanted to do a salute so that everybody could hear just how proud she is.

Dennis served 9 years in the Navy. He was stationed out of the Bangor submarine base and served aboard the USS Ohio for the last 4 years.
Harris enlisted back when the economy was crashed out in 2009. He needed to make some sacrifices in order to take care of his family. Alicia says that Dennis put aside a few of his other goals to provide for them.

Sadly, in 2012 Dennis’ mother passed away from Cancer and he was unable to attend the service because he was on deployment. This event reminded Dennis of just how precious time with the family is, and was part of his motivation to not seek another enlistment and move home to be close to them all.

For his decade of service to this nation, and his hard work and values, today we salute Machinists Mate 2nd Class Dennis Harris of the United States Navy.


We live in the land of the free, because of the brave!
