The 12th Regimental Monument, located next to the National Infantry Museum, Columbus, GA, served as the back drop to the promotion of 1/LT Kyle Berner to Captain. Kyle is assigned to the Officer Advance Course at Ft. Benning. He had been a platoon leader and then Adjutant for the 1.12th IN Bn at Ft. Carson. LTC Palmer was asked by our own Red Warrior Ed Northrop if his original 56 yr. old captains bars could be used for the ceremony. He approved, and Katie Berner and LTC Palmer pinned on Northrop's bars.
Note: the wreath placed next to the monument commemorates and honors those lost on 9/11. The smaller 13 flags in the foreground left, commemorate those recently lost in Afghanistan. Other personnel in the picture are officers that served in 1/12th and are now at Ft. Benning.
Cpt Berner is on right next to Monument, LTC Palmer 3rd from left next to the Drill Sgt.
