Well folks, For those of you who know me, this has been a long time coming. After enduring many sacrifices with my family and time away from home, the Coast Guard has finally decided I should go to Reserve Officer Candidate Indoctrination and become a commissioned officer. I had given up any aspiration of this happening. So of course, when I wanted and expected it the least, they decide it's time! I am excited and scared and not one hundred percent sure! But nonetheless I am going for it!

Wish me luck~! Brian

That's how it goes sometimes. When you least expect something, it will happen.

Best of luck! You will undoubtedly kick ass!!

Holy crap, the guy from Kings of Leon joined the Navy? wow....

And not for nothing, we know the music industry loves to copy itself,
but the southern rock version of the Village People just wasn't meant to be....

Congrats Brian! I know you've had some ups and downs with the Guard, you left for a while if I remember correctly. Glad to see they finally figured out what they had in you

Brian is a great guy, solid as a rock, loves his family, loves his friends. We should all feel safe and proud having somebody like him defending us.

Good luck!

Congratulations Brian. I'm sure you'll do well as an officer. In my experiences being in the military, the best officers where those who used to be enlisted.
