The team of employees and management welcomed Robert Blomsness home from his service with appreciation and the utmost pride. Robert grew up around the family midway business, however, for the last 6 years, he has been serving our country with the U.S. Navy and for the last 4 years been a part of the elite Seal Team 7.
After graduating from Colorado State University in 2005, Robert joined the Navy. “I made my decision to join (the Navy) after 9/11,” says Robert. He has spent a lot of his time in training and preparing for his three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2010, he received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal award for his brave service. His 6-year commitment will end on September 12, 2011.
When asked his immediate plans, he smiles, ‘Mel (my wife) and I are going to travel the world and enjoy our freedom.’ Well deserved, don’t you think?
The team at North American Midway Entertainment were honored to have him at the Kentucky State Fair this year. It’s hard to know what to say or how to thank someone who performs such a great service for all, but we are all extremely proud of him and his accomplishments.
We all wish Robert and Mel the best with their future endeavors and travels!
