Every year across the United States, high school seniors must decide their futures. For some, they head straight to college. Others forego more schooling entirely and join the workforce. For Ronald ‘Flats’ Flatley, he chose to join the Navy.
Flatley spent 21 years in the Navy, eventually becoming a Naval Flight Officer. He deployed overseas three times, and eventually landed a job at the Joint Warfare Analysis Center (JWAC) before joining Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) as a government employee.
