About Xander Gamble

A little about me: I am from Austin, Texas, mostly, but have grown up and lived in many parts of the United States of America, as well as Europe. I am currently a Mass Communication Specialist Second Class Petty Officer in the United States Navy. I work at the Defense Media Activity in Fort Meade, Maryland as a broadcast journalist. I have served for 7.5 years, and have served as a nuclear Electrician's Mate on-board the USS Charlotte, a nuclear-powered submarine, as well as working as a staff journalist at the Commander, Submarine Forces Command in Norfolk, Virginia, as an Operations Manager at American Forces Network, Souda Bay in Souda Bay, Crete, Greece, and as a Social Media Editor for the US Navy Social Media team. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in 2011 from the University of Maryland University College while stationed in Greece. I have also attended Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, and received my Associates of Science in 2004 from Dixie State College in St. George, Utah. The opinions I share are my own and are neither endorsed nor reflective of the United States Navy nor the Department of Defense.
