Southborough -? Petty Officer 3rd Class Joseph Straight, a resident of Southborough, is currently serving as a yeoman with Navy Region Northwest in the U.S. Navy, which protects and defends America on the world's oceans.

With more than 70 percent of the world covered by water, 80 percent of the world's population living near those waters, and 90 percent of the world's commerce shipped over those waters, having men and women such as Straight serve their country matters. The ability to act from the sea and being uniquely positioned on the world's oceans help give the Navy the power to protect America's interests anywhere, and at any time.
