It is with great pleasure that I can announce the promotion of two IITs to full Instructor at the same time!  Congratulations to wplunkett2011 and BadFishy both of whom finished up their IIT trail this past weekend at Stafford, Va.  Both have been on the trail awhile and I am proud of the Instructors they have become.  Both are great assets to the program.

Congratulations to both of you!  :beer:

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

Gotta say, both of them were fantastic this last weekend, and I learned a ton from them.

Both of these promotions were a long time in the making, and I'm proud to have watched this journey unfold.

Well done, brothers - very much deserved.

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

"Scoring is a function of great execution, and winning Is the result, but thinking about winning can pull your focus off of proper execution in a competition. Thinking about process is the answer."- Lanny Bassham
