not a big deal, but last saturday i got promoted to Lance Corporal (E-3). I am in the reserves, and when i went in for the drill weekend they told me i was getting pinned that day. we were out there in formation on saturday, and i didnt have the chevrons to be pinned with so the sergeant major jacked em off another Lcpl for me to use. and for you all wondering, yes i got many hits in the shoulders with the bare pins, but it was all worht it feels good not being a PFC anymore, but really no difference. now i am gonna work my ass off to get corporal hopefully within a year.
