Bosarge enlisted in the U.S. Navy in Jan. 2003. Following 18 months of training at Navy Nuclear Power Training Command “A” School in Charleston, SC, where he progressed through Power School and Prototype as the class leader, he was assigned to the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) in Norfolk, Va. He rose quickly through the ranks and completed his nuclear and warfare qualifications a full six months ahead of his peers and was advanced to petty officer second class.

In June 2006, Bosarge reported to the PCU George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) were he was assigned to be the reactor electrical division repair parts petty officer. There he built from nothing a supply process that would pave the way for supplies and parts to be ordered and stored in divisional spaces.

After the successful completion of the first Operational Reactor Safety Examination exam, he was promoted to petty officer first class and handpicked to immediately become the department command career counselor for more than 400 sailors.

At the end of his tour he directly contributed to the command earning two consecutive retention excellence awards and was given the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for his actions.

In Jan. 2011, Bosarge was assigned to be the nuclear coordinator for NRD Houston. He led a struggling program from the brink of failure to a passing grade in only five months. He then pushed this momentum to bring the nuclear program where he finished 2012 as the No. 3 nuclear coordinator in the nation while performing community outreach programs and finishing his associate’s degree.

Currently he has held the No. 1 nuclear coordinator position for the last three months. He is responsible for 13 nuclear trained recruiters and an average of 80 future sailors at any given time. He is also the STEM program coordinator for the command and the Tiger Den Leader for Pack 1005 for the Boy Scouts of America.

Bosarge has been married to Melia Bosarge for the last seven years; they have three beautiful kids Zachary, 6, Jasmine Bosarge, 5, and Cameron, 1.
