Congrats Chris!

I received this email this morning from a good friend in Florida. That's going to be a promotion party I wish I could attend!

Dear friends and family...

Well, in a colossal misappropriation of your tax dollars...the Air Force (in their infinite wisdom) in a stunning display of foresight and vision....has conferred upon me the rank of Lieutenant Colonel!! I know, I know, I'm sorry...(but it's probably cheaper than funding another hunting trip for an un-named top government employee!)

Honestly, I am humbled and thrilled by this appointment. The official release of the promotion list was last Thursday, 17 August (which happens to be my birthday!), with an effective date of 1 Oct. However, those I work for think highly enough of me that they requested accelerated promotion and I pinned on that very day!

I am very grateful to all of you - whether you realize it or not, you have all played a role in my career and in my personal life.

Well done buddy!
