The Promotion of Dr. Hawksworth
Today we celebrated Shane Hawksworth’s promotion from the rank of captain to major in the U.S. Army. James Henry, MD, a retired colonel and our neuropathologist, directed the ceremony. Ian McDougall, MD, a captain in the U.S. Army, served as Dr. Hawksworth’s “adjuvant.” Shane’s fiancé, Amanda Stone, and her father, Army 1st Sgt. Michael Stone, Ret., attended the ceremony and changed Shane’s “shoulder straps” after Dr. McDougall read Dr. Hawksworth’s promotion orders.
