To say we were proud of Chris when he was selected for Lieutenant Colonel is an understatement. We knew that he would be screened for command and unsure as to if it would happen this year (if ever) and where command might be located.
The news came late July while Chris was away at Seattle Fleet week that he had been selected to command and Infantry Battalion in 29 Palms, CA. That's the desert. The hot hot DESERT! Although, I hear it's a dry heat and that the winters are lovely. Ha!
We celebrated with Chris on his HUGE accomplishment as soon as he returned home and made him a cake (the kids idea).
What an adventure this will be for sure.
Looking forward to see what God had in store for the Steeles in 29 Palms! So proud of you, Chris. You will be an incredible CO! I love you.
