I was officially notified today that I have been selected for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel. I won't actually be promoted/pin-on until sometime this summer, but today was the official release of the list. It is customary for units to do a funny pin-on with large paper rank to symbolize the selection when it is announced. My office was no different.
I came home and gave Cory my paper rank. He was pretty excited. He said, "Now I have two things from the AF. Your hat and now this!" I had given him an old dirty flight cap and he loves to wear it around the house. I guess he's slowly collecting a full ensemble.
We went out for celebratory pizza for dinner. Here's an obligatory ice-rink pic as well.
