Today’s #militaryfreshhighlight goes to @lexeejay 🏆
“I joined the military right after high school and I wanted to follow in my Father’s footsteps. Then my sister and brother joined, so we are an Air Force family for sure.
I am a SSgt in Security Forces stationed in MA. I absolutely love traveling and meeting new people, so security forces was a great career choice. Eight years in, five bases and over 25 countries later… I would say joining the Air Force was my best decision. Thankfully, I took the opportunity to capture all of my adventures and edit them for my YouTube.
As of right now, for professional goals I will be finishing my bachelors degree next year and look forward to pursuing my PsyD!”

Ret. Sgt Navarro on my left and Ret. Cpl Doucett on my right. Two Marines who served their country honorably and still are in a different capacity. I love the fact that we can relate on so many levels even though we didn’t spend on day in the same unit together. That’s the brotherhood and I believe it’s the best part of the Corps. Thank you gents for everything!

Born in Shreveport Louisiana , single mom , premature baby I faced alot of challenges growing up . We didn’t really have much but my mom and family made the best for us . I was 3 half months early 1 pound and 11 ounces . My mom was facing lupas she even went into a coma in the process . Through the grace of god we both were able to push through . With all of that going on it pushed me harder as a kid to grow up and do what I needed to do . I ended up graduating college in 2016 , going to barber school and graduating in 2017 . I played semi professional soccer soon before even thinking about joining the military.
In 2019, I joined the Navy as a Gunners Mate, focusing on my job, while at the same time Community- I was humbly honored to have been promoted and selected as Blue Jacket Sailor of the Quarter & Year within in one year! While serving in ⚓️ @americasnavy , I also trained for @ninjawarrior 🥷🏽💪🏾and competed in Season 14! Using my skills in soccer, I have been fortunate to coach some amazing young atheletes, and in addition, utilize my talents as a 💈Barber, aka @steadman_the_barber
My favorite quote I lean on:
ARE ALL APART OF THE
AND TRUST IT!

He never stopped doing what he was genuinely passionate about. …. Music 🎶
@army.ssg.g is on his way to getting those wings. 🪂
Two weeks down through ground and tower week at Airborne School left me feeling toasty. #sunburn 😅
Jump week and graduation is already coming up and I can’t wait to jump out of a perfectly good airplane a few times! 🪂😁
Military Fresh Highlight goes to @maddy_dunning27 ✈️ Good luck ma’am!
I graduated Officer Training on May 27th 2022 so I am a brand new 2d Lt and am currently at initial flight training in Pueblo Colorado until August 8th and from there I will wait for my pilot training dates. I will be joining the Nebraska Air National Guard as a KC-135 tanker pilot when my training is all complete.
I am following in my dads footsteps. He flew RC-135s at Offutt Air Force Base and then KC-135s at Nebraska Air National Guard.
Being a competitive CrossFit athlete and playing the piano brings me joy 😆
*PLEASE READ* Going on this show had a greater purpose than me getting some screen time. Anyone who knows me, knows I have never desired to be famous. I wanted to shed positive light on military members across all branches. With society changing & the Army being in a transition phase, I wanted America to see that we can dance, have fun & be unique individuals. I’m humbled that casting agents found my social media & felt I was a great representation of the military. While the camera couldn’t catch the entire audience, it was a surreal moment for a crowd of strangers to stand & cheer for me, literally bringing me to tears. Sometimes when we hear “thank you for your service” we smile, say thanks & brush it off because we keep going. That moment made me stop & realize just how much we sacrifice each & everyday in this life. To all of the beautiful individuals I shared the stage with, THANK YOU! The greatest take away was meeting all of you! To everyone who supported, watched & cheered me on, THANK YOU! Finally, to those who follow me on here or TikTok, THANK YOU! Without this platform, this may not have been possible. I hope I continue to be a positive light & inspire those to follow your dreams. I fought hard to pull myself out of a negative, dark place in life to spread positivity & love to those around me. While I’m not perfect, I’m truly humbled & grateful. ♥️ Everyone…from the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU!...
One of the biggest steps you can take towards healing and bettering yourself in life is to share your story with others. It can be therapeutic for you, and inspirational to others.
Thank you 🔁 @sheisiconic
VERY heavy post—TW: abuse, sexual assault, suicide, bullying.
Here goes my rare moment of writing out a meaningful caption:
Not many of you know much about me, let alone about my military experience. I had an extremely rough childhood with abusive parents, got bullied in high school to the point of trying to take my own life, had “friends” stab me in the back in unimaginable ways, getting raped by a guy with rich parents (got swept under the rug), becoming homeless whilst working 4 jobs, then joined the toughest military branch.
All of these have taken a toll on me, but up until being in the military I’ve never experienced anxiety in my life. In bootcamp, I broke my hip one week before the Crucible and was nearly kicked out when they discovered I had spent a weekend in a mental hospital because of my suicide attempt. Between my stubbornness and resilience I refused to leave which made some people mad, but I proved to them that I had the motivation and drive to keep going. They put in a waiver request for my depression. In the meantime I healed my hip and they put me back into training. We went off to complete the Crucible and I remember it was scorching hot, I even became a heatcase. Still, I sucked it up and made it to right before the hike back in which you receive your EGA and officially become a Marine when they decided to pull me out of the Crucible because they forgot that the waiver hadn’t gotten approved yet. So they put me back in the Female Readiness Platoon until the waiver got approved…only 3 days later. Once again, I was put back into training to complete a SECOND Crucible from start to finish. I finally became a Marine then made my way to the West Coast for MCT. After graduating, I was sent to North Carolina for my MOS school.
