Anchors Aweigh!

You must allow me a moment to superfluously praise my older brother, Steven. Yesterday he was promoted to Master Chief Petty Officer in the Navy, placing him in the top 1% of the Navy's enlisted force. Nothing can diffuse the beaming pride of our family. Congratulations, brother!



  1. That's a really, really, really big deal. Sending all of you extraordinary congratulations on this magnificent news.

    Sincerely, and with gratitude for his magnificent service to our country,

    the wife of a (former) submariner

  2. Please send me a photo - of your brother in full navy uniform!
    Love to do a painting....nothing quite like a man in a uniform. Navy blue, I swoon.
    Congrats to your brother.

  3. Victoria - That's what everybody keeps telling me. Despite having, at one time, three brothers in the military, I'm a bit of a ranking neophyte.

    pve - What an excellent idea! A long time has passed since I last took a photo of him in his uniform. Thankfully he's only 20 minutes away from me now!



Inspire me! Go on, I dare you.
