CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. --

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - A Camp Lejeune sailor has only been in the Navy a little under two years, but has already began paving a path for a bright future.

Seaman Bryant P. Jordan, an X-ray technician with 2nd Medical Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group at the French Creek Medical Center here, is more than meets the eye.

“He’s the epitome of a sailor that fits the mold for the standard of excellence we want to achieve,” said Chief Petty Officer David S. Beason, a senior enlisted leader at the medical center.

Jordan, a Kirbyville, Texas, native who enjoys cookouts and playing football, graduated high school in 2008 and went on to study radiology. After becoming an X-ray technician, there weren’t any job openings in his field, so he went to the recruiter’s office.

With original interest in the Marine Corps, Jordan decided to enlist in the Navy because of their healthcare program. Little did he know his profession would have him working alongside the leathernecks at Camp Lejeune.

Jordan has been in the fleet for almost a year and a half and has already earned the Fleet Marine Force pin, an achievement that typically takes two years to complete.

During his free time, Jordan has been working his way through the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program. He is currently a gray belt, which is the second out of five belts in the program. He has also helped his fellow sailors improve their martial arts skills.

“I like getting to work with Marines more than just working in a hospital because it allows me to get to know the patients on a more personal level,” said Jordan.

Jordan said he’s always willing to learn more about patient care in general, and that will drove him to volunteer to serve as a field medical service technician during a recent deployment to the Mediterranean area. While still fulfilling his billet as an X-ray technician, he performed the duties of a FSMT, which included drawing blood, aiding trauma patients, and working out of a pharmacy.

“He’s an up-and-coming star,” said Beason. “Seaman Jordan excelled as a combat corpsman while on deployment, and is already considered an advanced X-ray technician.”

“Going on deployment taught me how to work around complicated situations and showed me what I could do better for patient care as well as in X-rays,” said Jordan.

Now that he’s back from deployment, the young sailor is always looking for more ways to help around the facility and learn as much as he can about patient care here. He provides basic medical care and takes X-rays to assist doctors in the diagnosis process.

“It’s a reward at the end of the day knowing I helped someone get better,” said Jordan.
