For years Don has endured the nickname of Captain Underpants.
Yes, the Air Force world can be just as cruel as an elementary school playground.
But as of Tuesday, we were informed that he has been selected for Major (will not "pin on" until May of next year, though). And we are all so proud.
And relieved. The Underpants thing can end. Oh, who am I kidding? They'll think of something else. They always do. Kids are so cruel.
