LtJG Audrey Brandon ~ U.S. Naval Academy Graduate
As a wedding and military photographer, I was very honored to work with Audrey. Getting to shoot such an incredible young lady was a great experience. Allow me tell you a little bit about this accomplished Naval Officer.
Audrey Brandon comes from a wonderful family who is highly respected in their community. She was a 2014 graduate of Lima Bath High School where she was well-known for her intelligence, athleticism and friendly personality.
Audrey’s acceptance into the U.S. Naval Academy was an impressive accomplishment that speaks to her tremendous drive and work ethic. Only 9% of the people who apply to the U.S. Naval Academy each year are accepted. Their entrance requirements are very demanding. The application process is much more rigorous than most other undergraduate programs.
Shortly after her high school graduation, Audrey reported to the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. She immediately started her physically-grueling boot camp, also known as Plebe Summer. She was required to successfully complete boot camp before she could begin her academic program. Once she completed her first academic year, she chose to major in Operations Research. She also went on to become a two-year letter winner on the varsity women’s track and field team as a weight and hammer thrower.
After four years of military and academic training, she proudly became a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and was commissioned as an Ensign in the US Navy. She has now completed two years of her five year commitment. Audrey will soon be completing her first major deployment. She is currently serving in the Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer on a military ship.
Congratulations to Audrey and thank you for serving our great country. We appreciate what you do to keep us all safe. May God always keep you safe!
