Four Bars

Yea, that's my husband. Yea, he's handsome.  I love him in his uniform - these are the "Charlie's".
He has enough ribbons now to make four bars, which is a pretty big deal for his years in service and rank. He had a uniform inspection today so I was able to take some current photos in uniform. Hopefully, professional photos one day!

Love that half smile...

Look at all those stars… (whistles)


  1. Matt's letting his hair grow. You didn't say what the ribbons are for. Love Dad
