I had the honor to capture Lieutenant Colonel Mittlemark's promotion ceremony in the National Archives Rotunda. Promotions are a happy time in the military member's career as well as for their families. It is an opportunity to celebrate and recognize their outstanding achievement in front of their family, friends, and co-workers. Ceremonies held at The National Archives are extremely different from a traditional promotion ceremony.
Promotion ceremonies held in the Archives are different due to the location of the ceremony and the surrounds. It was held in the National Archives Rotunda. I have photographed in the Archives previously, but it's always breath taking. The Rotunda is home to the nations original birth documents - The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and so many more. With the Constitution serving as the backdrop, Major Mittlemark new rank of Lieutenant Colonel was pinned on by his wife and mom. He was administrated the Oath of Office swearing to uphold the constitution; the very document behind him.
Congratulations on your promotion to Lieutenant Colonel.
