A New BM2 in the House


Tim was recently promoted to boatswains mate petty officer second class, otherwise known as BM2. This is the new patch he will wear on his sleeve (if it’s not on his sleeve already).

With the baby on the way, this couldn’t have come at a better time. When Holly and I were down in Florida last month, we visited Tim and Carrie’s apartment. All of us were hanging out in the freshly painted nursery, and I heard Tim refer to Carrie as the CO. I laughed.

This is how I feel about Holly, too.

    Congratulate Tim for me. It’s something to be proud of.

    Oh, I’ll pass it on Ruth. Thanks so much. I’m sure he’ll be pleased.

    When he told me he was planning to join the military, my heart went into my throat, but he has really come into his own, in a way he couldn’t have anywhere else. It’s just amazing to see. When he stayed with me here in Port Seattle (his first duty station), it was plain to see that he loved what he was doing. What a lesson for me: you can’t know the path your kid should take. You can only just support him as he tries to find his way.

    Those are words of wisdom, Tim.

    Hey Popps,
    Thanks for shout’n out my advancement on the page! Makes me feel good. This advancement meant alot to me, and couldnt have came at a better time! When your an E-4 you get a little respect, People are like, “Man that guys a 3rd class, he dont know shit” true quote, but i think people start to actually listen to you when your in that E-5 group, you know what I mean, Now all the sudden, its “Man that BM2 is squared away” hahahahah same me just another chevron on my collar! Hahhaha, Im having fun at my job man, not to many people can say that! I feel blessed brother! Thanks again my man, and Ruth I don’t know you, But thank you as well, I appreciate the congrats!

    Hey BM2! I am sorry I didn’t get this up sooner, but I have been crazy sick this past month or dealing with sick kids, which also can make you crazy. You worked hard for this promotion son. You deserve it!
