The Graduation

The Graduates... SEO,STS and THe US Navy Seabees
Receiving his Honor Grad Award
His Credential and the Honor award.
Oath taking


Today Jeff is officially an STS for Diplomatic Security. Its a nice graduation ceremony with 19 graduates, made up of Security Engineering Officers (SEOs), Security Technical Specialists (STSs), and US Navy Seabees. They all look good in their coat and tie but on top of it all my husband Jeff graduates with Honor from his STS class.When his name was called, I was so speechless, disbelieve, overjoyed and pride . I wasn't expecting or had any idea about this honor grad thing,Jeff didn't mention it to me because He doesn't know too and he say its not a big deal for him and that he is already happy just to graduate. I've always been so proud of my husband achievements and his heart and desired to serve his country.The ceremony started with the presentation of the colors and the National Anthem was sung beautifully. Each graduate was called up one at a time to receive their credentials. They also each received a very nice graduation certificate and a leatherman multi-tool...which will come in very handy!!It was also really nice that Jeff's cousins, Wayne and Beth, were able to attend. We don't often get a chance to go to the 8th floor of the State Department, so we're happy they were able to come with us and see some of the artifacts that are part of the Benjamin Franklin State Dining Room we took pictures while admiring those antiques.Overall, it was a super great day!
