HE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Capt got a phone call from his boss tonight asking if he could come over and talk to him about something. We kind of looked at each other like "uh-oh!" We've been waiting to hear something about his promotion. Was this going to be the "you did it" visit or the "soo sorry you suck and didn't make it, there's always next time" visit. The boss showed up and gave us the wonderful news that my hubby made Major!!!!! Wahoo!! The Capt is no longer the Capt but the Major Select!!!!! He'll pin on sometime next year. I'm pretty proud of him!!!
Way to go big-guy!!!!!!!!
p.s. Thanks to Jen and Rob for being on the lookout for any and all info!! You guys rock!!!

My husband just got a promotion, too! He's not military, but power to the husbands and their paychecks!

Congratulations! I'll always think of him as "The Captain" though! I'm so proud of him and the whole family for being over there and doing what needs to be done. Thank him for me, will ya?

WHAT an accomplishment. To go from an enlisted man to a Major in the US Air Force! Way to go Kareem. Of course noone tells me of this!?!? Congratulations on the promotion!! I'm saying prayers that everything turns out ok with the MRI. I'm sure it will as God obviously has bigger plans for you. I am also saying prayers that you get your wish to work at a college. I know Dawn wants me to stop typing now.. but you obviously have a gift in that you have a need to learn and the ability to teach others. I have nothing but respect and admiration for you. Good luck in your new opportunity!!!!!

that is sooo awesome. we'll have to think up an new catch frase "the major that makes things happen" just doesn't have the same ring.

I'm a little behind in blog reading. Congratulations on the promotion. It is going to be weird when you start calling him The Major instead of The Captain.

Catching up with my blog reading and today it's your turn. I've had to start at the beginning of October with everyone's posts!

So happy for your loving hunk and his promotion - and for all fo the rest of you too. That's what happens when I slack off in reading - marvelous things are reported and I completely miss them! No longer - I know I'll stay caught up this time.
