I've Been Promoted!

I was pretty bummed when I found out I didn't get promoted to E-7 this cycle. I studied real hard, but not hard enough obviously! Seems I wasn't the only one who felt pretty bummed. One of my new friends Ron Phillips (VO-BB), jokingly said he was going to get me way or the other. I assume this is "the other" way he was talking about. All laughs aside, I'm very honored for this promotion. In fact, so was my Chief. He called everyone to attention and read the below letter.

I think if anyone, my Uncle Jim will be the proudest of this promotion. He's lived in Kentucky for like "ever!"

With this promotion comes the secret recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken and a lifetime supply of Kentucky Moonshine. I can only share the later with all of you!

Best always,

Hey totally deserved the MSGT promotion!!! Sorry to hear of this. I was anticipating a different outcome. Awesome to get this award from Govenor Fletcher (sp?)....nice honor indeed! Kentucky folks are generally cool in my book. Hope you are well. Please give us the time/number/station of your program again...~Prima

That's really cool! And even better that you got what is pretty close (if not exactly) a personal letter from the Governor of Kentucky. Bring on the spicy chicken and biscuits!!!
