Meet Lead Deckhand Walter "Mack" McNairy Experience: 26 years in the industry; 6 Years w/USACE 20 years with US Navy Job Title: MV Mississippi Lead Deckhand Likes about job/career field: “Still being able to get out on the water is a dream – the sunrises and sunset. Being that I was in the Navy for 20 years, the best part about this job is having the chance to still be out on the water, still getting to work on a boat, and going different places. Also, like when I was in the Navy, having the chance to mentor and help the young guys that come onboard and are just starting to work for us here, getting the chance to mentor them is a highpoint of this job too.”
