Congratulations and now I feel older

Older son pins on gold oak leaves as a Lieutenant Commander.

Gee, it seems like yesterday when my father pinned on gold oak leaves as an Air Force major and only shortly after that I was wearing the 2 1/2 stripes myself.

Tempus fugit.


  1. I imagine you feel about like I did when it dawned on me that the Warrant Officer and Senior Chief who worked for me were in Kindergarten when I joined the service and everyone else in the Division hadn't even been born yet. Of course that happened almost 25 years ago. :-)

    BZ to your son, and I guess we can now truly call you "the ol'man" !;-})

  3. Ach, and we lose another great LT to the other side. . .

    Seriously, BZs to all of you. You have a great family tradition. . .
