|This smile. My heart.|
|Randal and me at my high school "Senior Night"|
There are so many things I love about the Army and I'm a sucker for the ceremonial ... so it's no surprise that I was moved to tears at my husband's promotion ceremony. I am so very proud of him and his service. He has an unwavering faith in our military and the Soldiers he serves. We cannot imagine any other path in life and are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing culture. With a happy heart, we congratulate our fabulous Soldier as he is promoted to the rank of Colonel. We love you, Honey!
|Ready for the promotion ceremony!|
|These boys have my heart.|
|Of course we rehearsed our roles in the ceremony.|
I had the hard part, getting that crazy shoulder board onto his coat ...
But I nailed it! First try! HOOAH!
|Congratulations, COL Cook!|
