The mother of Maj. Gross and Col. Marek changed his rank insignia.  Lt. Col. Anez'a wife and son changed his rank insignia (with a little help from Col. Marek).

"It is always a pleasure to see CAP members rewarded for their hard work and service," said Marek. "All promotions are achievements worthy of our recognition and thanks, particularly those of higher ranks recognizing long-term excellent service."
