Some secrets are too big to keep. Growing up, I wanted to be Pete, because he had a dragon. Actually, I also wanted to be friends with Sean Marshall, who played Pete in the movie Pete’s Dragon. He pretty much went low-key after a few films after this, and did well: In 1978, Sean left the entertainment industry to pursue an education at Notre Dame College Preparatory. In 1983, he received a congressional appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York. Four years later, he graduated with a B.S. in Marine Transportation and an officers appointment in the U.S. Maritime Service, and the U.S. Naval Reserve.
