The Naval Postgraduate School Quarterdeck was a sea of khaki for the historic pinning of three new chiefs under the watchfull eye of Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Mullen, Sept. 21 (left to right): Special Operations Chief Kenneth R. Reeves, Cryptologic Technician (Administrative Branch) Chief Matthew E. Kline and Cryptologic Technician (Interpretive Branch) Chief Brandace S. Martin. “This is a joyous celebration and a very special day for the Navy and for me personally,” Mullen told the standing-room-only audience. “Today, 4,171 new chief petty officers are receiving their anchors around the world, and this is the only CPO pinning ceremony I get to do. It’s also my last in the Navy, as I move on to become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Oct. 1.” (Released)
