“I joined the military to take care of my family and get a more stable life,” said Yablonski.

According to Yablonski, the values required to succeed in the Navy are similar to those found in Bradenton.

“Growing up, I learned it’s important to help one another,” said Yablonski. “My husband and I take pride in our work back home with the homeless population we would providing resource information and food to those in need.”

NATTC’s mission is to provide world class professional aviation warriors to the Navy fleet supporting combat readiness anywhere on the globe, while taking good care of our people, families and being good neighbors and stewards in the city of Pensacola and the surrounding region.

The training center’s leaders and experts develop, deliver and leverage technology to optimize performance of our Navy, Marine Corps and foreign national students. We provide the most up-to-date and relevant training available to our sailors and Marines ensuring Naval aviation’s success.

Serving in the Navy means Yablonski is part of a team that is taking on new importance in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness, strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy.

“The Navy contributes to national security by keeping our skies and oceans safe from our enemies,” said Yablonski.

Yablonski and the sailors they serve with have many opportunities to achieve accomplishments during their military service.

“I’m most proud of graduating from boot camp and gaining more confidence in myself,” said Yablonski.

As Yablonski and other sailors continue to train and perform the mission they are tasked with, they take pride in serving their country in the United States Navy.

“Serving in the Navy is important to me because I like helping people in the world,” added Yablonski. “The Navy has a big part in humanitarian aid around the world and I love being a part of a team that has a part in that.”

The Naval Education and Training Command is the U.S. Navy’s Force Development pillar and largest shore command. Through its “Street to Fleet” focus, Naval Education and Training Command recruits civilians and transforms them into skilled warfighters ready to meet the current and future needs of the U.S. Navy.
