After graduating from Annapolis with the Class of 1990, Bodie was commissioned as a Naval Officer and assigned to the USS Boone out of Mayport, Florida. During his three years on board Boone, he deployed to the North Red Sea twice to conduct boarding operations in support of the UN sanctions against Iraq in the aftermath of Operation Desert Storm. In 1994, after his service commitment was up, Bodie moved to Dallas, Texas where he now lives with his wife, Laura, and their three sons, Jack (sophomore at Samford), Ben (Freshman at UT), and Mark (junior at The Covenant School). Bodie is a Senior Territory Manager with Safeco Insurance. He served on the Board of Trustees at The Covenant School in Dallas from 2009-2019, and he currently serves on the board of Abiding Fathers.
