Today we salute a troop who followed his parent into the service of this nation. Like so many others who we’ve saluted here, growing up with tales of service and the connection to our military led this American to do his part. Today we salute Samuel Corman of the United States Navy. Before you draw too many conclusions about this Sailor, there is one detail that makes this story a little different that so many others that you hear. Samuel followed his mother into the service and into the Navy. Corman’s mother Shannon was an active duty Sailor in the navy for 6 years, and was still a member of the Navy reserves for most of Samuel’s childhood. “He is proud of his mother’s service”, says his girlfriend Leanne who asked me to salute Samuel. “I think it’s really cool that he is doing the same job that his mom did in the Navy, and I think it’s also really cool that he is so proud of the fact that he’s following her.” She said. Corman is military police in the Navy as was his mother before him. For continuing a tradition of service, and for following his mother into the service of this nation, today we salute Samuel Corman of the United States Navy.
