Sentimental Sunday: A Yeoman's Birthday
Here I am on my birthday, 12 April 1981. I was a Yeoman Second Class in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve. As I have my uniform on, it was a drill weekend. The location is at my father-in-law's house in Jacksonville, FL, where my husband had been busy all day baking and decorating that cake, which bears the insignia of a Yeoman First Class. That day, at drill, I received my letter of advancement to YN1, and I had called my husband that morning with the news. It was a nice birthday present. The cake was a nice surprise, too, and my husband did it all by himself!
