April 26, 2019 - Sgt. 1st Class Nicholas Krause, right, a truck driver and the first sergeant for 32nd Composite Truck Company, 68th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 4th Infantry Division, pins his son, Spc. Skylar Krause, a geospatial intelligence imagery analyst with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, to the rank of specialist during a brief promotion ceremony at Camp Buehring, Kuwait.
Spc. Krause waited nearly two months to be pinned to specialist, just so his father, who arrived in Kuwait only days ago, would be able to promote him. Spc. Krause said it meant a lot to him to have his father pin him, as a symbol of the continuation of the legacy of military service in their family. Sgt. 1st Class Krause also promoted his son to private first class when the two were stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado at the same time.
