Chief Petty Officer select Upton Wallace, a member of Naval Forces Kuwait, took a step forward in her career by being pinned with the rank of chief petty officer at a ceremony held at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, Sept. 14. “There is not a problem anywhere on the deck plates of a ship or in the sand dunes of the desert that cannot be solved by a chief petty officer, that’s the value the chief petty officer offers to our Navy,” said Rear Adm. David F. Baucom the director of the U.S. Central Command Deployment and Distribution Operations Center and commander of the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support.
