    Very well done Sarge!

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Today was just surreal.

    I've spent the week helping out at a course that trains new squadron commanders. This was the final day of the course, and I was called up to be recognized for the things I did. Then the AMC Commander, a 4 Star General, announced to the group that I had been selected for promotion, and all 38 of them gave me a standing ovation. I've never experienced anything like that in my life. I doubt I ever will again.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Sure you will. You've got E7 and E8 promotions ahead of you. Get used to it.
