Alabama has a new Red Hat - Mixed Metaphor!!
« on: October 07, 2018, 03:41:45 PM »
Please join me in congratulating Mixed Metaphor on completing his journey to Red Hat at CMP Talladega on September 22!!  ^:)^  :partytime:

Mixed Metaphor posted his first Rifleman score at the Inaugural KD at Talladega, so it was an appropriate place for him to don the Red Hat.  He eased his way into the cadre by taking a Blue Hat and helping with the administrative details for a while then he decided to jump in with both feet and take an Orange Hat.  It has been my pleasure to watch him develop into a fine instructor and I look forward to working with him at many more events in the future!

Congratulations and HUZZAH!!!

Rocking the new instructor gear:


Proudly displayed at his office:

Gary worked long and hard for his hat. 

I was going through some pics and found these.  The captions may or may not be accurate.

"I can almost taste that red hat..."


"Just other inch closer and I'm gonna snatch it"


"Now seriously... quit teasing me"


"Not even kidding.  Longest promotion ceremony in history.  And I was in the army for 20 years.  Gimme my hat!!!"


<SIGH>
