Congratulations Bryan!

Congratulations on your promotion to Specialist, or in civilian terms "driver". I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments. All of your hard work has paid off and you deserve nothing but the best! Through this crazy year you have stayed strong, helped me keep my feet on the ground and followed your dreams. I can't thank you enough for all that you do for our family. You are an amazing example to me and our beautiful children. I know this promotion was bitter sweet leaving your 18's family, but a new chapter has just begun and I am sure it will be just as good, if not better.

I hope your first shift at 17's C shift was as good as you hoped it would be and as Jeremy says every night during his prayers while you are gone, "Please watch over Daddy and keep him safe while he is at the fire station...."

We love you!

everyone OFF the roads... if brians drivin' that could be a scary thing :) im sure it must be hard to switch units because they are like family... but we all know that he is a very likable person and will fit in with 17 C with no problems. We also know what a hard, dedicated, and commited worker he is and no body deserves this more than him and your family. CONGRATS brian.

Mr B,

As a frequenter of the "Kohlerfive" blog, I thought I would leave a quick comment to congratulate you on the promotion, and the great developments within your family. I'm proud of you my boy.

On a much less important note, it will be raining snow geese in South Dakota this weekend, courtesy of your younger cousin. We need to hook up on a trip sometime soon.

Congrats on the success and much Utah love towards your family.
