I’m Dustin. I created this website to give back to the Nuclear Community and all the Veteran’s that I have had the pleasure of knowing. You never really get a chance to appreciate all the things you learned and to thank all the people who helped you out along the way. This website is my way of saying thanks to the people I served with. People like Chief “Iron” Mike Nunez, Petty Officer 1st Class Daniel Wyatt, and Commander Mark Warner.
I hope this website helps you in some way.
I joined the Navy a month after I turned 17. My parents had to sign a waiver. I just wanted to get out of Spring, Texas for a few years and maybe get some money for college.
Boot Camp was easy and fun, Nuke School was extremely difficult and not fun. I eventually became a Reactor Operator on the U.S.S. John C. Stennis and left the Navy after 6 years.
I breezed through an engineering degree while holding a few technician jobs. I worked for Solar Turbines, then Samsung Semiconductors, both as an Engineering Technician. Once I got my degree I went to work as an Engineer at NASA, Johnson Space Center. My experience with the Navy helped me get all of those jobs, and helped me do well at each of them. Well, I had a little trouble at Solar Turbines, but that is a story for another time.
While working at NASA, I went to Law School at night. Once I passed the bar exam, I began working in the Oil and Gas Industry. Again, my affiliation with the Nuclear Program has opened many doors for me and is probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.
So Why The Navy Nuke Job Finder Website?
With this website, I want to help as many nukes as I possibly can. If I can help you find a job, GREAT! If I can help you with anything else, EVEN BETTER!
So many of my shipmates helped me during my 6 years in the Navy. They helped without asking anything in return, and at some point you just want to give back.
