LCS Alumni Danae Drake Is Promoted Within The Navy
Danae Drake, daughter of Jim and Cindy Drake, was recently promoted by the US Navy to Operations Specialist Petty Officer 2nd Class.
Petty Officers are self-sufficient leaders who know what work needs to be done without being told. They mentor Junior Seamen and Petty Officers, and are in charge of day-to-day business in absence of their seniors.
After graduating from LCS in 2013, Danae attended the University of W. Florida, earning a degree in 2017 in Military History. She enlisted in the Navy, and is currently serving in San Diego, CA onboard the USS Harpers Ferry. Danae has been on deployment to the Middle East, and is planning on applying for Officers’ Candidate School.
