Sean Gets Pinned!

Sean finally got his SWSCO pin. For those who don't speak in acronyms it stands for Surface Warfare Supply Corps Officer pin. Basically it's his insignia that proves that he's competent at his job. He did have to take a bunch of tests and meet in front of a board of senior officers for interviews and prove he could do tasks such as damage control, flight operations, shipboard supply systems, and be the Officer of the Deck. It was a pretty big deal for Sean and I was very proud. Especially when they let me have the honor of pinning him.

William waited very patiently.

The pinning (just like Cub Scouts!)

It was SO hot in there and I was very dehydrated and therefore very pale.

It sounds extremely important - Congratulations. That's pretty cool that you got to pin him (I'm sure it's good practice for when William is in Scouts!).
