Today, Lowell added another chevron to his crow. He is now an E6, a first class petty officer (PO1). Actually, his official rank is MM1, Machinist Mate First Class, because of his job as a nuclear mechanic, but petty officer is more commonly understood.
I’m so proud of my hard-working sailor! He received an EP (Early Promote) and special recognition last year for outstanding attentiveness and hard work-ethic. So, he got to take the First Class exam a year early and passed! It isn’t very often that a sailor will make E6 in 4 years while still haven’t seen a boat. Extra reason to be a super proud wiffey ;)
Congratulations, Honey!!! ♥ I love you!
