A 1996 Warren County High School graduate and Warrenton native is serving in the U.S. Navy at Naval Medical Center San Diego.
Chief Petty Officer Lashandrea Young serves as a information system technician at the San Diego based hospital.
According to Navy officials, the hospital’s priority is to provide the safest, highest quality patient-centered medical care for veterans, service members and their families.
“I am the command drug and alcohol program advisor and I am the liaison for sailors who might need assistance with treatment for drugs or alcohol,” said Young. “I love seeing the success of sailors who transition from being in difficult situations and begin to excel.”
The sailors who are part of Navy medicine are the most highly trained, educated and specialized force in history, said Navy officials. The role of Navy medicine in preserving the healthy and fighting readiness of that force has never been greater or more critical.
Those who serve in Navy medicine understand that they play a key role in meeting the missions of the armed forces, according to Navy officials.
“Serving in the Navy means everything,” added Young. “I represent my family, freedom and diversity. I am doing something bigger than myself.”
