Navy Promotion Ceremony at The National Archives Museum in Washington D.C.
What a day filled with excitement - two Navy promotion ceremonies at The National Archives. Yes, not only was it a promotion ceremony for Captain Juergens, but also Commander McCandless. They both arrived in Washington D.C. for their military ceremony.
Upon arrival to the museum, Captain Juergens' family took family portraits before the start of his promotion ceremony on the steps of the museum and in front of the impressive big black door.
Everytime my clients see this door, it is a must have portrait...as you can see why.
Upon entering the museum, Commander Juergens and Lieutenant Commander McCandless and their guest walked around the Rotunda and looked at the documents inside.
Commander Juergens was administered the Oath of Office by his Father Captain Juergens in front of the United States Constitution. Then Commander Juergens children and nieces and nephew were called forward to place on his new rank of Captain.
After Captain Juergens' rank was placed on by his eldest son, Capt Juergens administered the Oath of Office to Lieutenant Commander McCandless.
Following the Oath of Office, Lieutenant Commander McCandless was pinned on to the new rank of Commander by Captain Juergens and his Father - Captain Juergens.
At the completion of the ceremonies, Mr Davis gave Captain Juergens and Commander McCandless and their guests a in depth tour of the Rotunda and the documents inside The National Archives Museum.
Congratulations to both Captain Juergens and Commander McCandless on your promotion.
