“If you are willing to put in the hard work it will always pay, even if it isn’t always right away.”
Petty Officer 2nd Class Lucas Minor, a native of Boyceville, Wisconsin, is one of more than 5,000 sailors serving aboard the self-contained mobile airport, USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Minor graduated in 2011 from Boyceville High School.
The skills and values needed to succeed in the Navy are similar to those found in Boyceville.
“Growing up in Boyceville taught me about the loyalty of family,” said Minor. “Boyceville is a close-knit community and we take care of each other just like in the military. Also, I have been wrestling since preschool and that taught me a lot about discipline and hard work. If you are willing to put in the hard work it will always pay, even if it isn’t always right away.” CLIC HERE TO READ THE FULL STORY.
