    Congrats on promotion SGM Lambert and happy birthday


    Birthday wish for two Soldiers.....


    ...."Happy Birthday and Congratulations Sergeant Major Lambert".........
    I am really hoping this shout out makes it to Robin Meade and that she will Salute my husband on the Salute to Troops segment on 24 June 2014 as this is my husband's birthday.
    I have never been good at getting my husband birthday gifts. Matter of fact, I am absolutely terrible at it. He said the only thing he wants is to get recognized by Robin Meade on HLN Morning Express. I hope we can make his brthday wish come true.
    My husband and I are a duel military couple and have both served for two decades in the Army. We have also both deployed to Iraq and then after only a year break we found ourselves off to Afghanistan. My husband Mike Lambert was due to retire last year; however, decided to stay in a bit longer after receiving selection to attend the Sergeants Major Academy in Fort Bliss, Texas. We were both stationed in Fort Lee Virginia before his selection. I remained at Fort Lee while he went off to Fort Bliss to go to school. We will have been separated nearly a year while he has been in school. He is due back home just before and will be home on his birthday. This will be a wonderful reunion for us.
    He graduated school 6 June 2014 from the Sergeants Major Academy! Not only will he turn 40 this years he will do it with a bang because he also got promoted from Master Sergeant to Sergeant Major!! I am very proud of him and super excited for him.
    Looking forward to the bithday wish come true with a shout out on the Robin Meade HLN Salute the Troops...."Happy Birthday and Congratulations Sergeant Major Lambert"......28 June prior to his promotion party.
