Posted

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Christopher Kurz, a native of Mesa, reenlisted for six years at the USS Arizona Memorial in downtown Phoenix on Dec. 7, in honor of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice during the attack at Pearl Harbor that was the pivotal moment that sent America into World War II.

Petty Officer 1st Class Kurz, a 2001 graduate of Red Mountain High School and a 2013 Ottawa University graduate with a degree in business administration, is a master-at-arms serving with Naval Security Forces Guam.

As a Navy master-at-arms, Petty Officer 1st Class Kurz is responsible for providing qualified Naval physical security and force protection in support of Naval Base Guam’s mission involving waterfront operations, ordnance security, and logistical support to the 5th and 7th fleets in Guam and Marianas Area of Responsibility.
