Who is Chief Ricketts…

Hello. I am Marcus Ricketts. I am a millennial entrepreneur and  the proud owner of Chief Ricketts Apparel. I was born and raised in beautiful Miami, FL. In 2006 I joined the United States Navy and I am currently serving my 11th year of active duty enlistment as a Chief Petty Officer. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart. I thank God for my wonderful wife, who is also my best friend. She is the reason why I strive to do my best with my precious breathe of life. I love that we work together as a team to build the lifestyle of our dreams. Our life's mission is to do our best to build a better future for our three wonderful children. 

I thank God for the opportunity of serving in the world's greatest navy. The experiences that I have gain has helped me to become a great man today. One of the greatest days of my life was when I was promoted to Chief Petty Officer. At that moment, I knew God had entrusted me with the responsibility to lead his great men and women in the way to protect our country's freedom.

Why Chief Ricketts...

I chose the name Chief Ricketts because of what the role of a Chief means to me. A Chief has more influence than any rank in the military. I believe a Chief not only teaches sailors to be great warriors, we teach sailors how to be great at life. NAVY CHIEF!.... NAVY PRIDE!
