Justin Krashefski on Serving in the Coast Guard

Justin Krashefski has always been a man of his country. Growing up in the sunny state of Florida, Justin Krashefski didn’t engage with most activities that other adolescents of his age did. He was not interested in drugs, gang affiliations or premarital sex. At the time, he was only interested in looking for ways to serve his country, and in keeping himself in good enough shape to be able to meet those means with determination.

It was the day that Justin Krashefski graduated high school that he would get that first chance to do something for his country. He enlisted in the United States Coast Guard, and had gone to New Jersey for basic training by the end of that summer. Justin Krashefski impressed both his instructors and classmates with his athletic prowess and ability to stay focused on graduation day. He flew through the program, and had achieved active duty status before winter of that year.

Throughout Justin Krashefski’s enlistment, he learned a lot about the world and the other cultures that surround us. Justin Krashefski helped stop several drug and human trafficking operations before they reached American soil, but his learning experience didn’t end there. He saw other things such as willful immigrants who would risk their lives trying to swim their way into the country, or entrust themselves and their money to traffickers who were professionals in the field that yielded more probable results, however that usually involved much less desirable situations as well.

It was through these people that Justin Krashefski really came to see how the American way of life is of such high value.
