multiple blessings for offspring #2

Offspring #2 had some wonderful things happen today:
(1) His 3rd wedding anniversary.
(2) His promotion to captain.
(3) His lovely wife took part in the promotion ceremony by pinning the captain's bars (a.k.a. railroad tracks) on his uniform.
(4) Dinner with his bride of three years at the famous Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.

Yes, our LT is now our CPT.

He has one more month as executive officer (XO) of the 3-61st Cavalry Regiment's Apache Troop before he heads off to Ft. Knox, Kentucky for the Armor Captains Course.

Our CPT also earned the Expert Infantryman Badge (EIB) and now has that. However, he can not wear the EIB on his uniform because he is an armor officer and not an infantry officer. (As he often tells me, "It doesn't have to make sense; it's the Army.")

Be blessed!
RB
