ROTA, Spain — Construction Electrician 1st Class Jeremiah Hoobler, assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 11, had the rare opportunity to reenlist while on deployment on August 23, 2013.  

Hoobler is from Twin Falls, Idaho and has a wife and son Lacey and Silas Hoobler.  He has served for 11 years and eight months, and his new contract will add another six years. 

For those who have never been able to witness and be a part of a reenlistment ceremony, it can be a very emotional day. The service member is discharged before everyone present is called to “attention to the oath.”  With his or her right hand raised, the reenlistee swears to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, pledges faith and allegiance to the same document, and promises to perform his or her duties to the best of his or her abilities. The reenlisting sailor makes a personal commitment to wear the Navy uniform with pride, and live by the Navy core values of honor, courage and commitment. 

Some commands that Hoobler served previously were Naval Station Rota, Spain, NMCB-1, and Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit 303 Detachment Fallon. 

Hoobler raised his right hand to accept another term, on August 23rd, while standing next to the flag at Camp Mitchell in Naval Station Rota.   Hoobler was sworn in by Ensign Brooks Sanderson, Civil Engineer Corps, United States Navy.  The United States of America has just gained another six year commitment by one of its finest.  Be proud America!
