It’s always nice to wake up to good news. Friend of the blog Esli has been selected for promotion to Colonel.
Congratulations to him and his splendid bride Faith (herself a veteran as well). Esli has served as an enlisted infantryman, and in a host of leadership positions at the company and battalion levels as an Armor officer, and as an instructor in tactics. He also has a sterling reputation for genuinely caring for his soldiers and their families.
His selection for promotion is an indication that the Army still knows how to promote quality leadership.
