Embracing the Stars: Documenting Military Success
Melissa Sawyer is a Space Force officer who has been promoted to Lt. Colonel for her professionalism and outstanding military service. She was surrounded by family, friends, and co-workers as she received her new rank at Mount Vernon Estate in Alexandria, Virginia.
Melissa's husband happily volunteered to be the Master of Services for the event and said, "It was a special day for Melissa because she has worked hard over the years and this promotion is something she deserves."
I met Melissa several years ago when I photographed her promotion to Major in 2017. Originally we were expected to have her ceremony at Mount Vernon, but we had to make a quick adjustment. Thankfully for this promotion, Lt. Colonel Sawyer was able to have her promotion ceremony at this beautiful Northern Virginia venue.
A Perfectly Timed Ceremony
The weather was a bit of a challenge on the day of Lt Colonel Melissa’s our Space Force promotion ceremony. We had some rain and wind, but it cleared up just in time for her promotion ceremony. I think this was such a special moment because it showed how much effort went into making sure everything was perfect for these men and women who have worked so hard to get where they are today. The Mount Vernon Estate provided an idyllic setting for this celebration--one that will be remembered by all who attended for years to come!
