A moment of Prayer at the end of the ceremony of new Chiefs at the Spring CCTI. The O’ Club in Alameda was a perfect venue for this event.
Through the Initiation process the chief is tasked with creating a hat box that is unique to him and brings honor to his rating.
Chief thanks the Junior Officer that was involved with his transformation from E7 to Chief.
The Chiefs Cover is a signature sign of the Chief. As this E7 makes the transformation into becoming a Chief his hat is placed upon his head by the Chief of the mess.
Junior Officer thanks her Chief for inviting her along the process to become a Chief. The relationship between Officers and Enlisted is fostered through initiations like this and close working relationships through the Junior Officers career.
A wife is thanked by the Chief of the Mess for supporting her Chief.
A portrait at the event where a Chief and his wife take time for a memorable moment. Simply Lovely.
