In the first letter I ever received in bootcamp, my dad wrote. “Remember you need to get to one place, to get to another. Never be afraid, you will never be alone.” It meant a lot to me, especially because I’ll be away from home a lot, traveling to different countries and experiencing new situations constantly. I wanted to be able to always remind myself to never be afraid and to know I’ll never be alone. So I got this tattoo in my dads hand writing to lift my spirits if I’m ever feeling low during my time in the navy, and for the rest of my life.
