He told the class about being an HVAC professional in the Navy.
I remembered asking my dad if he would come to my sixth-grade career day. I thought it was crazy to have a career day when you were in sixth grade. We were too old to enjoy the jobs our parents did, but too young to worry about getting a job. I was cheerful dad didn’t show up, because this was proving to be a lame and embarrassing day for everyone. My focus was on the fact that I was missing lunch. My friends were sad because everyone was bored. An hour later, the teacher said we had one last person who would come in to talk to us. I was writing in my book and reading a little until I heard the voice. He introduced himself and said he was an HVAC professional on a ship. I felt tears in our eyes, because I hadn’t seen my sibling in over a year. I got up and ran to him and didn’t want to let go. I had tears in my eyes as I pulled up a desk so I could be near him. He told the class about being an HVAC professional in the Navy. He said that as an HVAC professional, he was responsible for superb air quality on the ship. He made sure that everyone who worked in the bowels of the ship had heating and air conditioning. He was also responsible for making the men on the ship comfortable by supplying fresh air. When he was done talking, everyone was dismissed, and all I could do was cry and keep hugging my sibling.
