        Warrant Officer Promotion Ceremony

        Congratulations to all the newly promoted Warrant Officers! 👏🏻 👏🏻

        Hannah did it RIGHT! Any future Warrant Officers hopefuls? Take note! Y’all, hundreds of folks were all over Quantico and USMC Museum getting promoted. Even off a busy intersection, on both sides of an Iwo Jima Memorial.

        At the same time. (After appointment ceremony)

        Not here! Home girl reserved the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation’s Semper Fi Memorial Chapel back in November. No waiting in line (yeah there was a line too for the overlook!), no cold, and padded seats. Well, done. 👌🏻

        I can’t say it enough. I really do feel honored to be invited into such big life events like this. There’s so many photographers, and so many options but I got to be there. I may or may not get a watery eye thinking about it.

        I love the tradition and pomp of the military. I love the uniforms, getting dressed up, and the all around respect and honor of promotions, re-enlistments, changes of command, and birthday balls!
