Photos Of Kelechi And 5 Other Nigerians Making Us Proud In The US Navy

Not every Nigerian goes abroad to engage in crimes and soil the image of the country. There are some that have made us proud in ways like joining the US Navy which isn't something easy to do.

We know that when Nigerians travel abroad, they tend to be very successful because of how hardworking, intelligent and diligent they are. It's very sad and unfortunate that they could not achieve such great things when they were in their own country because of how the system has failed in many ways.

I will share the list of some Nigerians who are making us proud in the US Navy

1) Kelechi Ndukwe

He is a Nigerian-American who was mailed for his trailblazing appointment as a commander for a US Navy ship.

On 2 April he commanded the US Navy Guided Missile Destroyer, USS HALSEY (DDG-97)

2) Lieutenant Victor Agunbaide

This Nigerian man was commended by the US Navy for managing it's largest cash disbursement office which had about 45 million dollars. He was awarded the Navy and Marin Corp Development Medal for his exemplary accountability.
