"A 2015 Cherokee Trail High School graduate and San Diego native is serving at the Navy’s largest aviation training center.
Airman Christian Seukpanya is an aviation electrician's mate and operates out of Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, Florida.
Aviation electrician's mates repair some of the most advanced electronics systems in the world. Repair jobs can range from flight deck troubleshooting of the electronic weapons system on an F-14 Tomcat aircraft to changing computer circuit cards in an air-conditioned shop.
Seukpanya credits his success in the Navy with lessons learned growing up in San Diego. “My father told me to focus, don’t get sidetracked, and do better than him,” said Seukpanya."
The Bob & Coe Show and KGB salute you Christian, thank you for your service!
