Pullman native goes underwater for U.S. Navy
October 21, 2021
BANGOR - A Pullman native is serving aboard the USS Nevada, one of the world's most advanced nuclear-powered submarines.
Seaman Anthony Heaney serves as an information systems technician and joined the Navy to seek opportunities to earn money for school and support his family.
"I had no money for school or to support my family," said Heaney. "The Navy was an opportunity to get both."
Heaney attended Pullman High School and graduated in 2019. Heaney now uses skills and values similar to those found in Pullman.
"Life isn't easy," said Heaney. "Nothing is free. Everything is earned."
