Larry Stegna served his country for 40 plus years as a silent hero. He worked as a Marine Electrician for the legendary Bath Iron Works. In his time there, he worked to secure electrical work on over 70 ships.
The vital work of the Bath crew allows the Navy sailors and officers to do their job knowing they are on a top-of-the-line vessel. In this interview with Greg Kelly, Stegna gets emotional when talking about the pride he had in his work at Bath Iron Works.
After Stegna’s father passed, a ship called the USS Zumwalt came into his life. Working on that ship helped him refocus his life on what gave it meaning: serving our military. Named after Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, Jr., the ship also allowed Stegna to meet the Zumwalt family. They have been close family friends ever since. Admiral Zumwalt’s granddaughter Maya is the executive producer of this podcast.
This is a can’t-miss conversation with a true American patriot whose vital work is often overlooked, but nonetheless a part of the backbone of our military’s strength.
