Captain Roth

Phillip is now a Captain! He had his promotion ceremony this past Friday. The ceremony was really nice. It was held at the officer's club and Phillip's current commander gave him his oath and I pinned on his new rank. Two other officers also got promoted, one to Captain and the other to 1st Lieutenant, who actually also happen to be husband and wife. The Lieutenant also works with Phillip in Finance. Then afterwards there was a nice reception with hors d'oeuvres and cake.

Pretty soon Phillip will be moving down to the Budget Office to be the Budget Officer. Plus in about a month the other Captain in the office will be leaving for a new base, so Phillip will then be second in command. Lots more responsibilities to come...pretty scary! :)

Congrats to my little Captain!! I'm very proud of you!

The start of the ceremony, all those involved.

It's a tradition to give the spouse flowers at the ceremony. I like this tradition, a lot! :)
