Yesterday the 11th of June was my daughters 13th wedding anniversary. First of all I think it is commendable to be married for 13 years in today's society, so congratulations for that! It also turned out as the day the Staff Sargent Surina was placed on the promotion list to Gunnery Sargent Surina. Now I can't tell you how proud that makes me feel. I love this country and all it stands for and I thank anyone who chooses to serve it with their lives. The sacrifices that Stacey and Jeff have made in the service of this country is truly something that needs to be recognized and honored.
Congratulations Jeff, and we thank you both for all you do.
