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.
