2009 Chief's Pinning Ceremony

Last Wednesday I photographed the 2009 NAVSUBSCOL Chief Petty Officer's Pinning Ceremony. This is the annual transition where selected First Class Petty Officers are made Navy Chief's. This is arguably the biggest rank transition in the US Military. There is a lot of tradition behind it all, part of it I don't know anything about as I am still a First Class, but hoping to change that some year in the near future, and go through the transition to Chief myself. So enjoy these photos of one of the most important transitions in the US Military.
