Robert spent the first two years of his Marine Corps Service stationed on Okinawa, Japan and deployed to Afghanistan. During that time he enjoyed meeting new people from all over and being able to experience a culture different from ours. He loves to travel and wants to see more of the world. In Japan he was able to climb Mt. Fuji, and also go to South Korea to get a tour of the Demilitarized Zone on the border of North Korea. Robert also enjoys the great outdoors with activities such as swimming, kayaking, hiking, fishing, and various other activities. And when he’s not doing that, he enjoys playing video games and watching movies and documentaries. As if that wasn’t enough to stay busy, Robert is on a bowling league and enjoys football, basketball, and playing golf. Fortunately for us, he also has time to run oil samples in the lab here at Blackstone!
