A couple of weeks ago, Carmel found out he was promoted to Lt Col. We are so proud of him and all his accomplishments. He works hard everyday to make sure his job is done right and done well. About a week ago, he had a pin on ceremony. It was held on a C-130. I thought the plane was an excellent choice.
We hopped aboard to watch as he repeated the oath.
Then the pinning began.
After all the pins were in, we stepped off the plane for a few more pictures in front of the plane and then headed inside to celebrate with some cake and punch.
My mom came also but she went inside to cut the cake. I forgot to get a picture with her.
When someone is promoted, it is customary to pass out coins to special people. We all received one!
It was a special day for a very special person!
