Oh happy day...Mark is officially a First Lieutenant in the Army, serving as a Nurse in the Army Medical Department. We've been waiting for months and months for his paperwork to get approved for his promotion and last Sunday, September 30th he finally got to tear off that gold bar and replace it with a black (AKA "Silver") one. Moving on up baby!
So like any good wife would do, I went and cheered him on and had the honor of slapping on his new rank onto his uniform. (Awkward...I felt like we were getting married all over again as we stood next to each other facing his commander. I don't think I was suppose to stand like that but everyone else was standing all official, it just seemed appropriate at the time I guess).
