Finally, the official flag officer Navy list has been released and we can tell the world what we have known by rumor for several weeks.  Son Sean has been selected for Rear Admiral, lower half, and will be taking over a command handling all Maritime Reconnaissance P-3 aircraft activities in the Pacific Ocean area and Middle East on or about June 6, 2010.  He will be based at the Atsugi Naval Air Station, Tokyo, Japan and he will be accompanied by his wife Joanne.  As you might suspect, I am so proud of him I'm about to bust and so glad I lived to see him make it.
