I would like to thank all my fellow veterans for their service, especially the women.  Without the brave women who paved the way for the rest of us, I would not have been able to serve in the Navy. I met many amazing women during my 22 years in the Navy.  One who especially stands out is YNCS Anna Marie Wilber Anderson. She joined the Navy during WWII but had to get out after she married and got pregnant.  She waited until her son was older and went back on active duty and also served in the Naval Reserve.  She retired with 20 years combined active and reserve service. She was a very dedicated and was an excellent example for those of us who knew her.  She passed away several years ago at the age of 83, but she was a wonderful mentor for me.
