Captain Travis Michelena

Travis had his promotion ceremony yesterday so he is now officially a Captain in the U.S Army. He was very happy to finally have those Captain bars on his chest. The promotion ceremony was held down at 3rd port on the Large Tug Boat. It was raining so we were all inside on the bridge but it was large enough for everyone to fit in there so it worked out well. I am very proud of him for all his hard work! Just wanted to share some pictures from the day.
