The day has arrived!  Paul is now a Captain in the US Marine Corps!  YAY!  I couldn't be more proud of him!  The "ceremony" (or ten minute oath reading, as I like to call it) was Monday morning at 10.   Col. Hogan led the oath, a Gunny read the warrant, and he had his Corporal and Sergeant pin on his bars.
We plan on having some sort of Wet Down/ Birthday/ Graduation from EWS party in June, so those of you that live here, stay tuned.
If you have a chance, shoot a congrats Paul's way, I know he'll appreciate it!
Here are some pics from the promotion:

so, if you were to retire right now, would we have to refer to you as The Captain for the rest of your life? Could Abbey be Tennille?
