This is a rigorous and stressful event that teaches new chiefs to work together and builds camaraderie. It involves many trips, fundraisers, tasks, and duties. The dinner was the culmination of the six week process where the seven chiefs were indoctrinated. They, of course, were all ready ranked E-7 or chief, but this process makes them official members of the “chiefs mess.”

The dinner was held in the Elks hall in Astoria, Oregon and we were both surprised with how beautiful the location was!

Each chief had to make a hat box for their military hat. Stacy made a sturdy, simple design similar to what an earlier sailor might have used onboard ship.
