SUPERIOR, Ariz. – ABF3-Petty Officer class Murrieta Paytonof the U.S. Navy, serving on the U.S.S. Nimity, is reenlisting this month. Murrieta has four years active dutyand will be putting in two more years after being sworn in at a ceremony in Everett, Washington.

Murrieta is the son of Fred and Karen Murrieta, and sibling to his sister Melodi. He will be making the second deployment before the end of the year.

Recently, Murrieta wrote this for all his fellow veterans, active military brothers and sisters:

“You know…there is something there, some kinda connection, some kinda familyhood between military men and women.

“Whether you’ve seen real war up close, or do your job from afar on the ocean on a carrier or small boy (small ship)…when I see a movie or a history clip of some sort, or see a soldier having a hard time with the things he’s seen…you feel as if you’re right there with them, feeling the same pain, or the same joy brings tears to my eyes and hurts my heart to see them hurting…because they are my brothers…my partner from afar…I am there for them when the time is needed.

“When the time comes to put all foolishness aside and step up to whatever is threatening what and who we love…we are soldiers, and we are family. God bless.”
