Cristian Fabela Promoted to Second Class!

This morning Yvonne, Diane, and I went to Norfolk Naval Station to attend the 'frocking' ceremony on board the USS Kearsarge. Cristian Fabela, along with numerous other shipmates were being promoted. Some to first class, some to second class, and some to third class.

Today Cristian put on Second Class!

Besides her physical therapy appointment and doctor's appointments, this was Yvonne's first 'outing' since her surgery.

Diane, Yvonne's sister, flew in to help her in her recuperating adventure.

Below Cristian is getting 'pinned' by his division officer.

After everyone was promoted the commanding officer made a few remarks and challenged the new petty officers to assume their new responsibilities on Monday.

Then it was time for cake! The ship's culinary specialists made the cake and it was moist and delicious! It took six cakes to actually make the whole thing.

Cristian is up on the stage getting a group picture taken. I'm eating cake!

Then it was time for another picture with us in front of the big flag, and he escorted us out. Cristian had to go back to work.

Congratulations Cristian! We're proud of you!!!
