I got to watch my hubby get pinned with his new rank this morning. The RDC did a great job at contacting me, as well as setting up and attending the VTC. I had to admit that I even need to send a thank you card to the lady I am not fond of for making sure that I was called and told about what time to show. A few of the RDC attended which was really nice since they were prepping to go off and do things I can't talk about. So all in all I am glad to see that as the deployment goes on they are improving in their response to family matters & emergency situations. Yeah to the RDC.
As for the promotion, I was actually tearing up. I didn't think I would but this is a major change for him now that he is midway through his career. He looked good and I am glad to see that everyone was is such a great mood. I worry about morale sometimes, because just like anyone I would become grumpy when shoved in the room with the same people day in and day out for almost a year. So it was nice to see some many people laughing, smiling and having a great time. I especially enjoyed listening to the hard Boston accent of one of the guys he works with - anything I could do to get him to say something with a hard "a" in it would make me giggle to no end.
So Hip, hip hooray to my hubby and his hard work. Everyone - Ms T, Sgt L, SSG H, Ms H, my brother and SSG S all say congrats on your promotion!!!
