I have since been to the Middle East twice and been awarded accolades for my achievements. I have received letters of commendation from leaders at Combatant Commands and won Sailor of the Quarter at my command of 2, Sailors. Since coming out, I have fought to defeat the very thing that caused me to not come out any sooner: stereotypes. I want to be the gay man that I wish I met when I was younger.
