Hometown: Holly, Colorado
Name / Alias: Jim Beaman
MOS: Store Keeper Unit: USS Wright CC2 Rank: PO3
Time Served: 3 Years, 7 Days Branch of Service: Navy
Why I joined the Military: The era of the draft was in effect when I graduated from high school. I felt it was my obligation and duty to enlist, so I chose the Navy. Two of my good friends enlisted also and the three of us went to boot camp together. It made it easier to be away from home for the first time at such a young age. I wanted to complete my service time, start college, and find a good career.
Life changing event: While serving time in the service I was taught numerous things. The most important ones that have remained with me are discipline, responsibility, and respect. I learned how to adjust to being with a mix of all different personalities which has helped prepare me for the road of my future. I was able to see different areas of the world.
Why I Joined Handmade By Heroes:
One of the requirements to belong to the HBH team is that you must have served in the military. I take great pride in the making of the product that our company sells. I have a granddaughter that shoots international trap for the U.S.A. Shooting. She has a chance of going to the Olympics in 2016, which will be held in Brazil. This helps me to finance a trip there to watch her shoot.
