Default What Was Awesome About Today?

Post the shite that made your day. Little things to bragging.

Here's mine:

For those who DON'T know, I'm an active-durty Navy photojournalist and broadcast journalist. My last command was doing photojournalism for a specific unit of Navy engineers and construction workers, known as "Seabees." II left them in May and had been deployed to eastern Africa, where were doing all sorts of humanitarian work.

I finally checked the online copy of Seabee Magazine, a quartly publication that showcases the Naval Contruction Force globally. Since that was my job at my previous command and I flooded ever single one of our outlets with so many photos, the magazine is SWAMPED with my work!
