Son-in-Law's Promotion to Sergeant

This morning our daughter sent us a text-message. She was very happy to share some good news. Her husband Christian, has been promoted to Sergeant at the police department where he works. Their office is based on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan, which means they are always dealing with some extremely heinous crimes. When Christian first started out, his job was to patrol the streets of this corrupt city, at night. It was a dangerous position to fill, five-six evenings a week. Thanks be to God, he received two promotions in ten years, to a much safer job. We are very proud of our son-in-law!

Congratulations to your SIL and of course his family. Does his promotion mean he won't be on the streets that much anymore?

You should be proud. Becky's son was just promoted from 1st Sergeant (Army) to 1st Lieutenant. She hasn't come back down yet.

Our son-in-law is a tremendous young man. We are so very proud of him, also when he became a detective, two years ago.

@UncleJoe We met Christian about six months after our daughter's painful divorce. She was hurting badly, so she went online to meet someone kind. I cringed, just thinking about it! After two years, they did get married and are very happy together.
