SNSI - Major Rankin 

I started working at CHS in 2019 as the Senior Naval Science Instructor. I entered the Marine Corps in 1997.  My military occupational specialty was Adjutant which is the only job I know of that requires the ownership of a sword and has their very own march, the "Adjutant's Call".  My favorite thing about the Marine Corps is the people, I love Marines.  I actually enjoyed moving every couple of years and had the good fortune of living in Virginia, North Carolina, California, Belgium, Louisiana, Georgia, and Rhode Island.  During my military career, I deployed four times.  My advice to anyone interested in the Marine Corps is to go for it.  People who join the Marine Corps join to be Marines, for us, that is the incentive. The hardest part about the Marine Corps is the first couple months...after that, any day you don't get yelled at is a pretty good day.  My favorite assignment was Executive Officer of the Naval Academy Preparatory School in Newport, RI; a billet I had no interest in.  It turned out to be the most rewarding tour of my life.  The Midshipman and Cadet Candidates in the NAPS Battalion are who motivated me to pursue this "retirement" career with NJROTC.  I am delighted to be here at CHS.
