It was a beautiful blue sky day in Washington D.C.; absolutely perfect weather for an Air Force promotion ceremony at the National Archives Museum. Major Miller and his family arrived to the National Archives and greeted their friends as well as introduce everyone to his Presiding Officer Brigadier General (BG) Hinote.
Major Miller was even blessed to have his Elementary School Principal and his Fifth Grade teacher in attendance of his promotion ceremony.
Once inside the Rotunda of the National Archives, Major Miller's friends and family took a quick glance at the United States Constitution and then began the promotion ceremony.
The ceremony was called to order and BG Hinote discussed Major Miller's Air Force career and what has brought him to this promotion day.
The military promotion orders were read and the Rotunda came to attention. Major Miller's wife, daughters, and Mom was called forward to pin on his new rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
After pinning on her Dad's new rank, Lieutenant Colonel Miller's eldest daughter gave her Dad a high-five.
Following the pin-on, Lieutenant Colonel Miller followed military tradition and was administered the Oath of Office in front of the United States Constitution.
After the Oath of Office, Lieutenant Colonel Miller thanked his friends and family for making there way to the the National Archives to help him celebrate this wonderful career achievement.
Lieutenant Colonel Miller congratulations on your Air Force promotion. I wish you and your family continued success in your military career.
