Amanda Carvin Enlists In Navy

Civilian Amanda S. Carvin, daughter of Laurie J. and David C. Carvin of Susquehanna, recently enlisted in the U.S. Navy under the Delayed Entry Program at Navy Recruiting District, Pittsburgh. The program allows recruits to enter the Navy and take up to one year to complete prior commitments such as high school. Using recruiters as mentors, this program helps recruits ease into the transition from civilian to military life.

Amanda will report for active duty to undergo basic training at the Navy's Recruit Training Center, Great Lakes, IL.

Amanda is completing her senior year at Susquehanna High School.
