Hello, I am Mark Adams. I’m a veteran after serving 23 years in the U.S. Navy. I joined the U.S. Navy in 1993 out of Detroit Michigan and my first duty station was in Mayport, Florida onboard the USS Vicksburg in June of 1994 and participated in Operation Desert Shield in the Persian Gulf and Operation Sharp Guard in the Adriatic Sea.
In 1998, I had orders to Recruiting duty in Peoria, Illinois and in 1999 I was ordered to the Military Entrance Processing Station, Des Plaines, Illinois where I served as a Navy Classifier insuring the Navy’s manning goals were met with the correct placement of Sailors to the right job.
I volunteered for Pre-Commissioning duty onboard PCU Preble in 2001, were I helped prepare a brand new naval ship for sea duty. On November 9, 2002, in Boston, Massachusetts, I commissioned the USS Preble with the USS Constitution alongside. During this tour, I took place in the Global War on Terrorism, in anti-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia and in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
I reported to Carrier Air Wing Nine out of Lemoore, California in 2007 and served as the Strike Group TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller Supervisor preparing junior Sailors for air control events.
In 2011, I transferred to the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island and served as the War Gaming Chief. His duties included preparing war games and hosting dignitaries from around the world for the different scenarios that they faced, to include Humanitarian and battle plans.
My last duty station came in 2013, when I checked onboard Carrier Strike Group Nine. I served as the Assistant Joint Interface Control Officer, insuring that the Strike Group was tactically prepared to exchange data of enemy forces. I retired from the Navy in 2016.
