Is that the Stanley Cup National Championship Bus driving down Constitution Ave in front of the National Archives? Why yes it is! Major Templeton and his family has selected a day to have his military promotion ceremony in Washington D.C., that's the same day as the celebration parade for the Washington Capitals. What a celebration! There are so many people walking the streets with banners, noise-makers, and anticipating the winners of the Stanley Cup and it's only 7:30 a.m.
While waiting for the National Archives Museum to open for special events, Major Templeton's family and guests were entertained just watching all the Capital's fan anticipating the parade. It was also a great opportunity to catch-up with each other.
This little guy is adorable. He made sure I got a photograph of him. Doesn't he look handsome.
Once inside the National Archives Museum, the Presiding Officer talked about the military career and success of Major Templeton.
Major Templeton's family was called forward for the reading of the promotion orders and to pin on his new rank.
The Oath of Office was administered after the pinning on of Lieutenant Colonel Templeton's new rank while his family and friends looked upon.
Lieutenant Colonel Templeton thanked his family, friends, and co-workers for attending his promotion ceremony and always being supportive of his military career and his family.
Congratulations Lieutenant Colonel Templeton on the success of your military career. I wish you continued blessings.
