How has the Navy improved your life?: Since joining the Navy, I have improved my leadership skills and with that my confidence has increased tremendously. I increased my duties and responsibilities to help better serve the Navy and my junior Sailors.

Why was this Sailor Chosen to be Highlighted?: While assigned to U.S. FOURTFLT, CS2 Turney went above and beyond the call of duty in all aspects of her job in the month of May. She prepared over 16 different meals for the Ombudsman, a Flag Officer and the Admiral. As the RPPO for the Headquarters, she ordered, tracked and received materials valuing 900 dollars in support of daily operations and as the building manager, she submitted work requests to maintain the headquarters’ aesthetics and 100% operability. CS2 Turney provided the best customer service and has been a huge asset for U.S. FOURTHFLT.
