Labor Day 2014


The Big Day finally arrived and it has been quite the journey. Pinning on Chief in his fourteenth year of his Coast Guard career is something to be celebrated with honor. He would tell you "it's no big deal."  And I would disagree, wholeheartedly.  Years of hard work and a lot of sacrifice and then more years of harder work and even more sacrifice, is always, and most definitely a big deal. A proud moment indeed and it is not without the emotion of great joy and a few tears that we celebrate it.

His biggest cheerleaders, they deserve recognition as well ~
