We will try to put the profiles of one or two new members in the newsletter each month. This month is Kevin Millikan who doesn’t seem to me to be a new member due to his involvement in Post activities.
When Kevin was six, his family moved from their home in Carthage, Missouri to a new home in Lawrence, Kansas. As a junior in high school, Kevin enlisted in the U. S. Navy in its delayed entry program. Upon his high school graduation in 1980, Kevin was assigned to San Diego for basic recruit training. He received advanced training as an Aviation Machinist Mate and was assigned to VA-128, West Coast Training Squadron, at Whidbey Island NAS. At Whidbey Island, he worked exclusively with A-6 Intruders. From 1982 through 1984, Kevin was assigned to VAQ-132 where he was deployed on a Mediterranean cruise aboard the USS Eisenhower in which the carrier was engaged in support operations in Libya and the Middle East. He worked as a jet engine mechanic and flight deck troubleshooter. He was honorably discharged in 1985, and after working briefly in California, Kevin relocated in Alaska where he lived and worked for the next thirteen years. In 1998, Kevin and his wife, Jean, moved to Edmonds. Kevin has earned an Associate Degree from Edmonds Community College and is currently enrolled in an undergraduate program in Information Technology and Administrative Management through Central Washington University. He and his wife have three children.
