Congrats Nephew!

Today my youngest nephew, Alex, received his Officer’s commission in a ceremony at Fort Lewis.

His parents have come west and his brother has come north.

We were able to join them briefly last evening–taking that usually short drive on Interstate 5.  Construction and heavy traffic from an accident cut our time short but we did manage to eat together and take a few photos.

Here I am with the newly commissioned Second Lieutenant Kolkena.  His dad, retired from the Air Force, pinned on Alex’s new bars and proudly saluted his son.

Congratulations Alex!

I returned to radiation today, beginning my fourth week.
