The Navy was created by the Continental Congress on October 13, 1775, after George Washington appealed for its formation.

With plans for further educa- tion, Jenkins said the training he has received will take him far into the future. I plan on getting a bachelor's degree in electronics, and when I leave the Navy I will work towards my master's degree.
