Three Stripes Up and A/Det Cmdr
Sara got "pinned" this morning so now her attire reflects her rank. We are so proud of your hard work, not only making it through the meritorious board process, but for being singled out through that process as the only nominee to be awarded the advancement. You will wear those stripes with great pride and great responsibility as the "A slash" (Assistant Detachment Commander). We are all sitting back home just grinning and enjoying the blessing of God in your life through your hard work and perseverance.
"Ask and you shall receive!!"
"What you think about, you bring about!"
Of course you ordered your Sergeant rank pins ahead of time so you would have them on hand! Why not?!
"If the mind can think it, and believe it, it can achieve it!"
"Show me your five best friends [who you spend your time with], and I will show you your future!"
Singing "Praise God from whom all blessings flow..."
"In whatever your hand finds to do, do it heartily as unto the Lord!" ... that you have done.
Well done, Sara. Well done, daughter! Well done, Marine!
