Congratulations to Fire/EMS Department Major Paul Cruz on his recent significant accomplishment in his “other” career. On Friday, September 16, 2011, Paul Cruz, who currently serves as the Executive Officer in the Office of the Fire Chief, was ceremoniously pinned with his anchors. He was also presented his chief’s cover hat after being elevated to the rank of Chief Petty Officer, backbone of the United States Navy. The pomp and circumstance ceremony, conducted at Naval Air Facility Washington, Andrews Air Force Base, was filled with naval tradition.

Fire Fighter/Medic Catherine A. Crilley, also in the U.S. Navy Reserve as a Senior Chief, served as Cruz’s sponsor and presented him with his chief’s cover hat. Paul Cruz was pinned by his wife, Frances; daughter, Madison; and son, Aidan.

Congratulations Fire Major and Chief Petty Officer Paul Cruz.
