A Big Promotion!

My man got promoted to CAPTAIN yesterday!!!

Major General Oates happened to be visiting their base in Iraq yesterday and performed an impromptu official ceremony to promote Johnny! It was quite an honor for him to be promoted not only by a Major General, but also a fellow Ranger!

I am so excited for him and proud of all that he has accomplished in his 3 years in the Army. He is an excellent leader and truly loves to serve our country.

Congratulations to Johnny! That is quite a treat to be promoted by a MG...wow. And that is awesome that you got pictures so quickly...what did they do before the internet?
And congratulations to you...because like you said in your previous post being an Army wife is one tough job but something so great to be so proud of your husband. Awesome, awesome!
