Back to the galley

I found from personal experience that it's difficult to leave the galley behind when you change direction in your career.

DES MOINES, Iowa (April 19, 2010) -- Chief Navy Counselor Joseph Kacinski, assigned to Navy Recruiting District Minneapolis, shows students at the Central Campus High School culinary arts program how to make pineapple-mango salsa. Kacinski spent more than 10 years as a Mess Management Specialist aboard fast-attack and Trident missile submarines before changing rates to Navy Counselor.

Kacinski visited the school during Des Moines Navy Week, one of 20 Navy Weeks planned across America in 2010. Navy Weeks are designed to show Americans the investment they have made in their Navy, and to increase awareness in cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.
