"Congratulations on your new rank of Lt. Col. I happened to see your post and I just had to comment on it, especially since about 20 minutes ago I read a FB post that my nephew Jim posted and he just got selected for the rank of ....you guessed it...Lt. Col., but he is in the USAF. Congrats again and I am also very proud of you and thank you for your service!"
Scott Duncan remarked:
"Congratulations, Kerry Hogan. This is a tremendous day for you and what a special promotion ceremony with your Mother presiding!
"I was promoted to LtCol outside the Marine Corps museum too. My grandfather was a Marine and fought in the battle of Tarawa. He had passed just shy of a year before my promotion, but him and I share a brick on one of the paths outside the museum with our names and info on it - "we" did the promotion right there.
"Live and lead well, Kerry Hogan."
Cordula Roosa stated:
"Great achievement. You must be so proud of your mum and your mum must be so proud of you. Personally I am a Swiss National living in the UK. My son grew up in the UK. Being an expatriate, he did the Swiss National Service on a voluntary basis. Proud mum talking here. Did him really good, he matured during service. A shame that the UK doesn't have national service anymore, would do the youngsters a lot of good."
Shakeel Akter said:
"Wow great Congratulations Blessings."
