2Lt. Kelso is ancient. So Ancient that there are few still around that remember that he was once a Company Clerk under Col. Wheatley. At some point he left, but he came back in 2016 and decided to get involved in leadership and just like his clerking, he got really good at it. So good in fact that he has once again found himself in Company as its Commanding Officer. To recognize his feats as not only an astute paper pusher, having done exceptional MP work throughout his career, but also for his on and off field leadership, myself, Sgt. Maj. and Regiement have decided to do this AND promote him to the rank of First Lietuenant. Congratulations 1Lt. Kelso!
