I just wanted to take a second to say Congratulations to my awesome husband. He earned a really big achievement at work, and I'm so proud of him.
Let me give some background on military lingo first...
CGO stands for Company Grade Officer, which includes both 1st and 2nd Lieutenants and Captains. Grant is a Captain.
Just before Thanksgiving he found out he earned CGO of the year for his program.
That meant that he'd be up for CGO of the year for his wing. While he was at SOS, he never heard anything about it, so he just assumed he didn't get it. Well, at work on Monday, he found out that he did, in fact, get CGO of the year for his wing. Now he's up for CGO of the year for all of SMC (Space and Missile Systems Center), which is huge.
Even if he doesn't get that, what he's already gotten is a really big accomplishment, and it shows that all of his hard work has paid off.
So, yay for Grant!!
