Luther Abel joins the podcast. Luther spent six years in the Navy, starting in the nuclear program and eventually ending up as a conventional mechanic. While stationed in Washington, Abel went on the decommissioning tour for the USS Rodney M. Davis, a missile frigate. The tour took Abel and his shipmates to Japan, Singapore, Maldives, Indonesia and Brunei. Abel later served on the USS Carl Vinson, a Nimitz-class super-carrier. After finishing his commitment to the Navy, Abel interned for National Review magazine, where he still writes today as a contributor. Abel currently is a student at Lawrence University in Wisconsin.
