YOKOSUKA, Japan (WIFR) -- Jacob Deppe, a graduate of Pecatonica High School continues his service with the U.S. Navy as part of the USS Cheyenne (SSN 773) crew.

Deppe's recent travels brought him to Yokosuka, Japan on the pier at U.S. Fleet Activities. He has served with the Navy since 2017, previously in a role as a machinist's mate fireman.

“I joined the Navy to gain experience that most people don't have and to see the world,” said Deppe. “My best experience aboard the ship has been the Sasebo port visit.”
