Terry Mitchell Collier — U.S. Navy

In April 1981, Terry Collier enlisted in the Navy, motivated to follow in her father’s footsteps. 
“Because he was in the Navy I never considered any other branch, that just would have been weird,” she said. “Watching my dad study so diligently and work so hard for advancement in ranking really helped make me better at studying.”

Shane Steinhart – U.S. Navy – Castaic Resident

Shane Steinhart chose the Navy because he was a good swimmer. “I really didn’t like camping or being in the dirt all that much — I like fishing, and I would rather be on a boat. I could jump off the boat and go swimming,” Steinhart said. “The only deciding factor really was for me was the Marines or the Navy. I scored high enough on the ASVAB score that they were kind of fighting over me.”
