Meet Our People – The Enduring Spirit of the Chickasaw Nation

Following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Chickasaw citizen Benjamin Espinosa made the bold decision to join the U.S. Navy, where he served in Afghanistan and later worked for the Secretary of Defense staff at The Pentagon. Today, he is a combat support technician for the Naval Special Warfare Unit, specifically SEAL Team 10. A husband and father of three young children, Espinosa says he hopes his kids and descendants will look back on his service to his country and be proud.
