Promotion, finally!

Yesterday I finally got my black bar! That means I was promoted from 2LT (which wears a gold bar, aka butter bar, hence the flattering nickname “Butters”) to 1LT (which wears a black bar, and no nicknames that I am yet aware of).

Apparently I am now able to start sentences with the phrase, “In my experience…” without people bursting into laughter. I have yet to try it out though…

Anyways, I am very glad that I got the promotion, and will be even happier when I get my back pay from the pay increase 🙂

I’ll post some pictures when I get them from the public affairs guy who was photographing the ceremony.

      this promo was back dated to Nov 13th (the day I became eligible for 1LT), which means 2 month of back pay are headed my (and Lauren’s) way!! woo!
