Husband and wife anchor up aboard Wasp

Chief Machinist Mate Select David W. Sthole and his wife, Chief Machinist Mate Select Kristin L. Sthole, pin each others anchors on during the Chief Petty Officer Pinning Ceremony

“From the moment I heard I had been selected, I told myself no matter what my disability I was going to finish,” said Kristin Sthole. “When my husband told me he had been selected I was excited, I already had my ticket ready to be there for his ceremony. Then, when I found out I had been selected as well it was just overwhelming. I am honored to have been able to complete my remaining transition period aboard Wasp with my husband by my side. I am truly grateful for both commands for allowing this.”

Our Best: Staff Sgt. Vanessa Parrish

Parrish is nearly two-thirds of the way through a year-long deployment, and although she must be away from her son, she is thankful for all the opportunities and benefits the Marine Corps has provided her family.

“I’d like to stay in the Marine Corps,” said Parrish. “I’ve met a lot of wonderful people, and I’m hoping to make a career out of it and retire at 20 or 30 years.”
