Overlooked Achievements *Disclaimer: This is 100% brag post :)

With all of the chaos surrounding our not move, I feel like something awesome was overlooked.  My wonderful husband Colin (who ferociously fought against this posting), graduated from Submarine Officer Basic School (SOBC) at the top of his class, and received the L.Y. Spear award - thus completing his training as a nuclear officer.  The first L.Y. Spear award was given to the SOBC class honorman in June of 1938.  As a result he got a cool award to add to his collection, and a beautiful engraved watch.  I couldn't be more proud!

Here are some links to news websites where his accomplishment was published:
The Day Connecticut News

Sub School Website

*You can find the same article reposted some other places, you just have to search for Colin Podelynk.  What can I say, it's a tough name :)
Not to mention, next week he gets promoted to LTJG (Lieutenant Junior Grade)!  What an awesomely smart husband I have :)

Update:  Since some people have asked, and I should have made it more clear, the L.Y. Spear award is for "class honorman (highest gpa) in recognition of his overall superior academic performance."
