Pinning New Chiefs!


Thank you for stopping by and checking out my work!


This is another layout from my Navy Daze. Every September, the Navy pins new Chief Petty Officers.  It is a huge deal.  This pinning was in 2002 and 9 sailors "made it" from the USS Chancellorsville that year. Every chief select has to carry around a box. I'm not sure what is in it, but they do.  The photo in the middle is all of the chief's boxes together-make up the anchor (Navy Chief symbol).

The Chief's pick someone who they want to pin on their anchors and their sponsor (normally a chief who is senior) puts on their pilbox cover as a sign of them being promoted to Chief Petty Officer.

Thank you for stopping by!

I think we're all going to learn a little more about the Navy this year...and what an enjoyable way too! Ceremonies are a great way to remember and recognize achievement, it's nice to see the joy in everyone's faces!

Shannon, I love the colors and did not know about the tradition in the Navy; thanks for the info. I love the layout you used as well!
