HM2 Raysbrook

That's right, I made 2nd class this time around. Too bad I'll be out before I see that nice E5 paycheck, but I can enjoy the new priviledges that come with being a second!!!

I was on leave two weeks ago during the big official frocking ceremony, as was another one of my shipmates, so he and I got our own little frocking ceremony (special) and....... I got my volunteer service medal that has been in the works since April 2008- you read that right 14 months. Oh well, at least I have it now.

The frocking went well, and I can't thank Heather enough for sewing my 2nd class patches on my unform, or Hillery for the fact that she handed down her 2nd class patch to me...just like they used to do back in the day.
