I went to bed an Army wife and woke up a Navy wife! (It wasn't long ago that I went to bed a Navy wife and woke up an Army wife!) Chris has left his Army boots behind and gone back to his sea legs! Chris was commissioned in the US Navy Reserves on the 4th of July on the USS Midway! (A retired aircraft carrier turned floating museum in San Diego Bay). Why you ask? Better carreer options and shorter deployments if we have to do that again! Praying we won't!!!
It was a wonderful ceremony, and thanks to all our friends and family who turned out to help us celebrate!
Chris' uncle Eric gave him the sword that he received at his Navy Commissioning in 1965!!!
We took the tour of the USS Midway and for one day only there was the original copy of the Declaration of Independence! Awesome!
