Morgan's First Year

I am so very proud of all your accomplishments!!
You are so deserving of this for all your hard work!
I love you with all my heart!!

Michael got some great news on Saturday...he made Operational Department Head.  The competition was tough and he was one of the chosen few.  I am soo PROUD of him!!!  Now you may be asking what this means...well, a few things.  In no particular order and I may not get everything but, here's the gist.  Michael will continue to be able to fly, he will get one more bonus installment, it will help when it comes time to put on O-5 (Commander), he will eventually be able to be skipper of a squadron if chosen and he wants,  he will have a lot more responsibilities, work longer hours, most likely be out to sea for 6+ months or so and he will have a lot more stress.  Additionally, it is possible that we may have to move.  Our first choice would be to stay right where we are.  Unfortunately, the Navy will put us where ever they need, be it here or across the globe.  Well, that's all I know for now.  Michael will be trying to get more information over the next few days and weeks.  We will do our best to keep everyone posted on the happenings. ;-)

Dad and I know this is what he wanted and we couldn't be happier and/or more proud of him. Please give him a big hug and kiss from us when he gets home. Love you both!
