A proud moment

It's a proud moment in the life of an Sailor she makes chief petty officer. The advancement of Chief Craig took place 25 years after my advancement to chief mess management specialist in 1985.

BLUEFIELDS, Nicaragua (Sept. 16, 2010) -- Chief Culinary Specialist Lafern Craig, from St. Thomas, Jamaica, salutes the side boys as she is piped in during a chief petty officer pinning ceremony aboard the multipurpose amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7). Iwo Jima is off the coast of Nicaragua in support of Continuing Promise 2010, a humanitarian civic assistance mission. The assigned medical and engineering staff embarked aboard is working with partner nations to provide medical, dental, veterinary, engineering assistance to improve mutual understanding of medical issues and technology.
