Skanes joined the Navy out of high school 13 years ago. She has served in the United States Navy since 2007.
Of her service, Murray said in an interview
“She decided to stay active, and I fully support her” “When you have those desires before the relationship, you have to do everything you can to make sure that person is still being the person that she wants to be and you make sure you support her. It’s the same with my career, so it’s only right that I do the same for her.”
Shauntay Skanes seems to be a lot more private, she keeps a low profile and isn’t a big fan of social media. We can still have a glance of the couple’s family life through Murray’s IG. Check out their photos below.
