SPARKILL—For the McGuiness family, service in the Navy runs in the blood.

When Dan McGuiness enlisted in the Navy in 1981, he was following in the footsteps of his father, Thomas McGuiness, and an uncle.  Another uncle is a Vietnam veteran.

Dan McGuiness, who attended Tappan Zee Elementary School, was selected to participate in the Navy’s limited duty officer program and was commissioned as an ensign in 1993.

McGuiness, 47, in May became commanding officer of the Naval Ocean Processing Facility in Dam Neck, Va., in the Virginia Beach area.
