"Major" News

We got some great news today...Tony received written notification that he was selected for promotion to Major! Finally, an end to the anxious anticipation that started when the board met last November. Hooray for Tony!

And as if you don't already hear WAY too much from me, I'm flattered to be guest posting for Scribbit tomorrow, so check me out over there, too.

Good job to you hubby! I remember those days (waiting for promotions). My dad was in the military and made it to colonel. Are you guys wanting to go that far?

Amber M. said...

At this point, Albanie, it looks like we'll be in for a bit longer...maybe even the whole 20 to retirement. We're at about 10 years in now.
