I would like to salute my husband, Chief Matthew Boldt, a nuclear reactor operator, who will be retiring in January with just over 21 years in the U.S. Navy. He is an amazing individual who gives his all to his country, job, and family at all times. He has received many accolades during his time serving in the Navy, including Sailor of the Year, Quarter, Month, and Week. Matt has recently added a new title this past June: Daddy. With this retirement, Chief Boldt is looking forward to no longer having deployments at hand, but will instead be basking in the delight of his new baby girl.
Matt, Ariana and I love you so very much and are so proud of you! We can't wait to see what this next chapter in our lives brings!
