    very proud of SIL in Air Force

    Our son-in-law is currently stationed in Kuwait. He previously had a tour in Iraq. While in Iraq he got a promtion to Senior Airman (E-4) seven months BEFORE his elgibility date. This morning my daughter called to say that he has been promoted to Staff Sergant (E-5) almost ten months BEFORE his eligibilty date. He has only one year in current grade and only three years and one month in service. Obviously he has done well in job performance, tests and other paramters. I'm beyond button popping proud. I'm actually crying as I write this. Both great young people and both great Americans.

    BTW, the way he was given the word was he was awakened at 5:30 in the morning and told there was an emergency at the flight line and he was needed. When he ran there, the wing commander had a formation of Airmen and officers waiting and he was presented with his orders in front of them all.

    That is terrific Frank!!! Just let him know that most of the citizens of this country really do support and respect the service men and women regardless of how any of us feel about any particular war. Without them we are toast. Just one persons opinion but I feel confident that it is all true.

    Frank - You are justly proud. We all owe your SIL, and all those serving with him, a huge debt of gratitude.

    Wes and Rennie pretty much summed up what I was going to say. Pass along a Very Well Done from me, too.
