Relo staff member's son helping to tell the Navy's story

Petty Officer 3rd Class Brett Walker is a mass communication specialist aboard the USS Gerald R. Ford, homeported in Norfolk, Virginia. The son of Jess Bookstore in Coldwell Banker Vanguard's Relocation division and a 2017 graduate of Clay High School, Walker is featured in a recent Navy blog post chronicling his role as a mass communication specialist.

"Serving in the Navy means putting your country before yourself,” added Walker. "I signed a contract saying that I would put my country first, so I have to always honor that by being professional at all times. I represent my country at all times - on duty and off duty."

Bookstore couldn't be more pleased with her son's career choice. "He is stationed on one of the newest ships in the Navy right now, and it is getting a lot of press and important visitors," Bookstore said. "I am so proud of him!"
