Captain Lowe


Congratulations to my Lover, who was promoted to Captain today! They had a promotion ceremony today that me and the kids went to. It was really nice. From what I've heard, the previous Captain promotion was really thrown together and not organized like it should have been. Alvis took the initiative and made this one REALLY good for Austin and Candelario (who was also promoted) by organizing the whole thing. What a great guy. Pictures are to come. I left my camera in Austin's barracks by accident but Booker (another Marine), took lots of pictures of the whole thing and he's going to make me a CD of all the shots. Kora and Jake pinned Austin's bars on him and they did a fantastic job! They felt very important, of course. It was really neat to see all of his friends in his platoon salute him afterwards, I was very proud!


I love you Captain Lowe!!

Fantastic!!

My uncle is in the military, and I remember whenever he earned a new rank, it was a big deal.

Over here, in boring land, we salute you.
