SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Springfield, Missouri, the original Jason Highley is currently serving on Commander Task Force 64, an assignment post in Naples, Italy.
Lt. Cmdr. Highley, who joined the Navy nearly 14 years ago, served as a surface warfare officer.
“Serving in the Navy means I respect the idea that I am not the most important person in the universe, that there are principles and ideas that are worth fighting for and dying to uphold and protect,” added Highley. “America has proven time and time again to be a staunch steward of these principles, and to light individual freedom and moral responsibility to the world. Hopefully this will take long. “
