After a 21-year career in the US Navy, Ben Gee worked on cars for a several years before joining Coshocton County Career Center in 2006.

COSHOCTON – Growing up, he had a dream. Then his talents took him a different direction.

“John Glenn was a huge national hero when I was a kid,” recalled Benjamin Gee. “I was fascinated with space and wanted to be an astronaut.”

Fast forward. He joined the Navy in 1976 and served 21 years as an advanced electronics tech working on radars and gun/missile targeting systems.  

“When I took the Armed Forces Qualification test,” he said, “it showed I was very good at mechanics and figuring out complex problems, hence I ended up in maintenance. As I advanced, I was placed in charge of more personnel, so I had to learn personnel management. The number one rule: ‘Never ask someone to do something you won’t do yourself.’”
