Fitz in the Morning: Troop Salute

Ziven Meyer of the United States Navy

Service in the military can take you to some pretty interesting and exotic places. For the Northwest native we feature today, service in the Navy took him back in time. Today we salute Aviation Ordnanceman Third Class Ziven Meyer of the United States Navy. Ziven is a native of the northwest and a graduate of Olympic High School in Bremerton. He has served on active duty in the Navy for 2 years, and he just re-upped for an additional 6 more years of service. Meyer has been serving the history of the US Navy aboard the USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned warship afloat. The Constitution is also known as “Old Ironsides” and has served the US in the War of 1812 and the Barbary Wars. She was undefeated in battle and captured 33 opponents during her patrol of the world’s shipping lanes.
“It was an honor and a privilege to serve aboard the Constitution”, Ziven says “One I will never forget”.
The next six years of Meyer’s life will probably take place on newer equipment, but the adventure will be just as epic. Today we salute Aviation Ordnanceman Third Class Ziven Meyer of the United States Navy.
