A Promotion.







Last week, Dad got promoted to a Lt. Col. I couldn't be more proud.
It was a simple ceremony out on the green, but so many people showed up! People that I didn't even know came and couldn't stop telling me what a great man my Padre is.
I know I'm bragging, but I couldn't agree more:)
It's a sorry frog that doesn't praise his own pond!
I know I've only been alive for only 16 years of our journey with the Marine Corps, but I still get so excited when I think about how far we've come.
My Mom met my Dad when he was Enlisted, and was considering  an ROTC scholarship to UNC in 1992. Almost 20 years, 13 moves, and numerous deployments she sits. Still by his side as he pins on the rank of Lt. Col.
She's one amazing woman.
I couldn't be more proud of you.
You're an outstanding Marine, a wonderful father, but most importantly an honorable man of God who continually puts others before himself.
I can't wait to see God move in our lives as we approach this new season in your career.
You deserve it.
Love always,
