Every so often an interaction with my fellow Boatswain's Mates leaves me so inspired I wish I could start my whole career over again. This was one of those conversations; and one I needed to hear to remind me that even though we find ourselves in uncertain times, BMs are still underway completing the mission and leading the next generation in the pursuit of their craft.
In this episode I had the privilege of speaking with BMC Lorenzo Ladaga, BM1 Shawn McLaughlin, and BM1 Miguel Torres, all from Maritime Safety and Security Team Miami 91114. We discussed the fast pace nature of their work, common misconceptions about career implications from a DSF tour, and how MSST Miami has fostered a positive climate where everyone can excel. Chief Ladaga and I even got to settle a twenty year old grudge that we didn't even know we had!
I hope you enjoy this one because I sure did. My hat is off to these guys and I applaud them for all of their hard work and dedication. Enjoy!
