Reamer got promoted! Now he is officially a 1st LT. That means that instead of a gold bar, he wears a black (silver) bar! I was able to go to his promotion ceremony and pin on his new rank. It was awkward for me because Reamer was the only person getting promoted and we had to stand in front of all the officers in his Batallion. Col. McFarland read his orders of promotion and Reamer's Commander put on his new rank. I then changed the rank on his beret. After I changed the rank, I had to put his beret back on his head. Everyone was laughing because when I put it on it was pretty funny looking! I'm very proud of my husband and I just wanted to give him a big CONGRATULATIONS!!!
*** I borrowed a camera and as soon as I get the pictures I will post them. (so you can see Reamer with his beret on funny!!!)
