It's spring in Washington D.C. and that means the weather is unpredictable. The weather was forecasted for sunny and warm, but instead we received cold and rainy. Yesterday was true to form. Captain Peebles and his guests arrived for his promotion ceremony and thankfully the staff at the National Archives opened the doors to escape the rain.
Once inside the museum, Captain Peebles and guests were able to look at the Nation's documents and catch up with each other.
The promotion ceremony was called to order and everyone gathered together.
Captain Peebles Pastor offered the Invocation for the promotion ceremony and he asked specially prayed for Captain Peebles individually for the wisdom, success, and guidance of his military career.
Captain Peebles' family was called forward to pin on his new rank of Major on his uniform and hat.
Then Major Peebles was administered the Oath of Office in front of the United States Constitution.
At the conclusion of the Oath of Office, Major Peebles thanked his family and friends for attending his promotion ceremony. Major Peebles invited his guests to come to lunch at Fort Belvoir with his family. Following the ceremony, Major Peebles family took new family portraits outside the National Archives Museum.
Major Peebles congratulations on your promotion. I wish you the best in your Army military career.
