I just came back from San Diego where I visited with some of my troops and I had the distinct honor and privilege of promoting my senior enlisted leader - Senior Chief Koelbel - to Master Chief.

In what is seeming to be the new standard, the pinning ceremony was conducted underwater. The bay was 62 degrees, so we wore 7mm wetsuits beneath the camouflage uniforms.

This is a great way to recognize the achievements of a great American hero!

Hoo-Yah Master Chief Koelbel!!!
