This morning my husband was promoted to Lieutenant Commander. A proud day for him, for us! Eighteen-and-a-half years ago James entered the Navy after finishing his first quarter of college, began working on submarines, years later got picked up for Officer Candidate program and went to college (and did quite well), and has continued to work hard for the last ten years. We met in college in a physiology class. Married, three kids, one masters degree later and multiple different duty locations now landing us in Japan together. We are so proud of you, James!
I sent my in-law pictures first thing after getting back to our hotel room and putting Miss C down for a nap. My mother-in-law is going to be so proud and certainly cry tears of joy when she sees them.
