Chief Petty Officer Richard Reardon, a native of Carson City, serves the U.S. Navy assigned to Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific.

Reardon graduated from Carson High School in 2006.

“As a child, I was always adventurous and open to new challenges and opportunities,” said Reardon. “Being in the Navy, we have so many opportunities available to us and I try to advantage of one I can.”

Reardon joined the Navy 17 years ago. Today, Reardon serves as an electronics technician.

“I joined the Navy to travel,” said Reardon. “I am from a small hometown, and I wanted to see all that the world had to offer.”

Reardon has many opportunities to achieve accomplishments during military service.

“I am most proud to say I was able to help the Japanese people during Operation Tomodachi which helped after an earthquake and tsunami hit the island in 2011,” said Reardon. "I am also very proud to say I made the rank of chief petty officer and can help bring up the next generation of sailors in the Navy.”

Reardon serves a Navy that operates far forward, around the world and around the clock, promoting the nation's prosperity and security.

“Serving in the Navy means dedicating myself to a bigger cause,” said Reardon. “We protect not just people home in America but extend a helping hand to those across the globe.”

Reardon is grateful to others for helping make a Navy career possible.

“I would like to thank my daughter, Layla, for making this career have meaning,” said Reardon. "As a military daughter, she has sacrificed a lot for my career and has made my life that much more meaningful.”

Reardon is also grateful for the opportunity to serve in the Navy.

“The Navy has helped me become an amazing man and sailor and I hope I can continue to serve and live a happy and healthy life with my family,” said Reardon.
