It's always great to hear from our panhandle men and women serving in the armed forces. Our thanks to the Navy for updating us on Lieutenant Craig Noltensmeyer, from Amarillo!

Lt.Noltensmeyer is a reservist assigned to the Naval Operation Support Center (NOBC) Fort Worth. He was temporarily assigned Commander, Submarine Group Seven. Noltensmeyer is posing in front of USS Illinois on the US Fleet peer in Yokosuka, Japan.

Noltensmeyer had a plan when he signed up. “I joined the Navy to see the world,” said Noltensmeyer. “I love Japan, especially the food! My advice to reservists considering duty here is to make sure you look up one or two places you want to see on your time off.” 

If you or your child is thinking about joining the military after high school, sit down with them and understand their considerations.

We encourage you and your families, to send us news of your proud Sailors, Marines, Soldiers, Airmen, and Coast Guardsman.
