I'm a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran that spent 15-years living in Okinawa, Japan both an an active-duty Marine and civilian. My Military Occupational Specialty with the Marine Corps was "Graphic Illustrator" (4611) which is an MOS that doesn't exist anymore. After completion of my time in service I worked for Marine Corps Community Services on Camp Foster in Okinawa, Japan as a Graphic Designer, Art Director, and contributing Photographer for MCCS's Okinawa Living Magazine, Okinawa Outdoors Magazine, and Okinawa Guide.
