Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Ryan J. Carlson, son of Patricia Carlson of New Port Richey and Kirk Carlson of Mount Sterling, Ill., recently graduated from the U.S. Navy's Nuclear Power School at Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.
Nuclear Power School is a rigorous six-month course that trains officer and enlisted students in the science and engineering fundamental to the design, operation and maintenance of naval nuclear propulsion plants. Graduates will have additional instruction at a prototype training unit before serving as a surface warfare officer aboard a nuclear-powered surface ship or as an electronics technician aboard a nuclear-powered submarine.
Carlson, a 2008 Dunedin High School graduate, has served in the military for one year.
