Zev´s Promotion Party

Last night we celebrated the promotion to Colonel for Zev and 8 other Air Force "selectees" in our area. The tradition is that the people picked for promotion put on a promotion party to celebrate with family and friends in the local area.
This wasn´t the actual promotion day, where Zev pins on his new rank. That will probably happen in about a year! The tradition during the promotion party is to wear "fake rank" as you can see in the following pictures.
Only a certain number of "Selectees" are promoted each month. So the day and month that you actually get promoted all depends on your "line number." Last night was a good chance to say thanks to the people who work with Zev and to honor the "Colonel Selectees" for their dedicated, hard work, especially in light of the fact that most of the Selectees have been in the Air Force for at least 20 years and so have kept up their consistently good efforts for all this time.
I am enormously proud of my guy, who humbly acknowledges this achievement, and excited to see where the Air Force (well really, where God!) leads us next.
Have a lovely weekend!
