I got promoted!

It took a few years, but I finally made E-6, petty officer 1st class. My family was there for the pinning ceremony, and my boss Chief Larry Baruwa and my dad Glenn Slaughter pinned the new rank on. 

From left, Aunt Ruth, Uncle Gilbert, mama Lois, Dad, stepmom Kathy. Great bunch!
Dad practicing before the ceremony. I'm trying to throw him off with a look.
Pretty much the entire building was there. All branches represented.

Don't drop the crows! There's 100 people watching.

Chief and Dadeo inspect their work. Good job!

Captain Norr is the top dog at DMA. He spoke at the ceremony told me to be ready to lead.

Uncle Gilbert is a Navy veteran. He's helping me upgrade the rank on my NSU jacket.

Next stop, chief petty officer!
