Maywood native and Proviso East High School graduate Jimmie Logan was recently the focus of an article produced by the Navy’s Office of Community Outreach.

Logan is a Navy ship’s serviceman aboard USS Philippine Sea. As a seaman, the Navy explains, Logan “key support as part of combat operations” aboard the ship.

Servicemen are responsible for “the ship’s store, customer service and bringing morale to the ship with products,” Logan said.

The Maywood native credited his hometown with a critical education. While living in the village, he said, “I learned to make the most of what you have.”
