Re-enlistment photos

Here’s the link to J’s Β re-enlistment photos. They were taken by a friend of mine so I wouldn’t have to worry about it during the ceremony. I’ve got a bunch from the rest of the day that I’ll add later when I have time to upload them.

I have to say, it’s a little weird to realize this enlistment takes him almost to retirement– 17 years. Then it’ll just be one more 3 year contract somewhere. Just plain weird.

See the flag he’s holding? That was raised over his ship that morning. We then left it at the USS Missouri (that’s the ship we’re on for the ceremony) and they raised it over the ship. J and I picked it up and took it to the USS Arizona Memorial where they let us take the ferry ride out to the memorial and the park ranger there helped us raise the flag on that mast, too. So that flag has flown over three Navy ships. Very cool.

That night I surprised him with dinner at one of his favorite new places– two couples and their kids met us there. It was a fun night and a great way to end the day.

[update]
I added the other photos, so now the ones from the Arizona Memorial and dinner are online, too.
