I had the privilege to watch a good friend’s pinning ceremony. He’s now a Senior Chief. We can quickly gloss over ceremony. It’s important. Achievement should be recognized and celebrated.
I’m impressed by the military community, and submariners in particular. They do a job they can’t and won’t talk about.. They do a job, do it well, and we are safe because of it. They are a classy group.
Freedom is not free; I find it easy for us to forget that while I watched the ceremony. The military deserves appreciation and admiration.
