Air Force Commander Promoted In Bozeman

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

It was a rare occasion for one Air Force lieutenant colonel today in Bozeman, as a U.S. congressman promotes a military officer.

David Weide was promoted from major to lieutenant colonel in a ceremony this afternoon at Montana State University.

Weide joined the Air Force in 1990 and now commands the Air Force reserve ROTC at MSU.

His family put his new ranks on his uniform after Congressman Steve Daines gave the promotion.

Weide said he doesn't see it as a promotion, but a blessing.

"It is absolutely amazing," said Lt. Col. David Weide. "Truly a blessing to have my family come up from Texas and spend some time with me, to be able to see where I've reached in my career, but not what I've done, but what the Air Force as allowed me to do."

Weide has head up the Air Force reserve ROTC at MSU for three months.
