Vicenza, ITALY - Every promotion in the Army is special. For newly promoted Capt. Craig W. Sanderson, his latest promotion will likely be one of his most memorable and unique promotions of his Army career.


During the closing ceremony for a medical training exercise in Benin, Africa, Sanderson stood before all the exercise participants and was pinned with the rank of captain by Michael Raynor, U.S. Ambassador to Benin, Jan. 25. 


Sanderson, a Gilmanton, N.H. native, said he felt honored that his promotion was a part of the closing ceremonies with the Benin and U.S. Army officials. 


My promotion was just a small part of the closing ceremonies. I was excited to share that experience with the Beninese military. It was fitting because Im a medical service corps officer so I thought it was a unique opportunity to get pinned, Sanderson said.  


Sanderson currently works as an aide de camp for the U.S. Army Africa deputy commanding generals.
