    Found out today I was selected for promotion...

    ...to Lieutenant Colonel...two years above the zone (that is, two years after I was "in the zone" for promotion). I got great support from my leadership here (Col to 3-star) who went through my record with a fine-toothed comb, righted some wrongs by a petty gov't civilian, and put me in the best position for selection this year. But a lot of the credit goes to my NCOs and junior officers who made the missions happen, and the senior NCOs who gave me the mentoring to make me a better leader.

    I wanted to share with the folks here, because when I'm not working or with family, you guys are here.

    Great for you. Based on your attitude towards those under you I'll bet they would have promoted you two years ago. Thanks for your continued service.
