“I joined the Navy to seek out better opportunities and serve my country,” Biggs said in a news release.
Known as America’s “Apex Predators,” the Navy’s submarine force operates a large fleet of technically advanced vessels. These submarines are capable of conducting rapid defensive and offensive operations around the world, in furtherance of U.S. national security, according to the news release.
“Putting together test missiles to deploy Navy special warfare personnel is what I’m most proud of,” Biggs said in the news release.
“To me, serving in the Navy means being a part of something bigger than myself, being a part of a team and the camaraderie that goes with it,” Biggs said.
