There are many reasons people want a promotion, be it bigger office, more money, company car, an assistant, more power and so on. William Barber Sr. wanted a promotion, but he wanted one for an entirely different reason. He didn’t want to be forgotten.

_Thank you for your service Motor Machinist First Class Barber. _
