LUBBOCK, Texas -

Cmdr. Espiridion “Speedy” N. Limón, a native of Lubbock, Texas, will retire from the U.S. Navy after 29 years of honorable service.

Limón, a 1995 graduate of Lubbock High School, joined the U.S. Navy as an enlisted man in June 1986. He attended Basic Organization and Orientation Training camp on Recruit Training Center, San Diego, California, and attended the Broadened Opportunity for Office Selection and Training officer succession program and received a Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship to attend Texas Tech University.

Upon graduating from Texas Tech in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, he was assigned to flight training in Pensacola, Florida, and received his Wings of Gold on Oct. 1, 1993.

"Mentorship is the key to developing our leaders in the military," Limón said. "My successes are not my own, but a culmination of all of those individuals who guided, counseled and pushed me beyond my known limits."
