Congratulations!!!

Yesterday we found out that David was selected for promotion to Chief Petty Officer! This is a huge step in his career! Only 26 Sailors were selected Navy wide from his job rate. I know that may not make sense to a lot of you, but it just means that it was a very selective group this year!

David will now go through 6 weeks of induction before he gets to change his uniform and actually be called Chief. For now, he is called Chief Selectee.

Congratulations Baby! We are so proud of you! We know you have worked really hard for this and you deserve it! We are behind you all the way! Love you!
