Re: [Rollei] Re: OT Sailor Fountain Pen

While we're talking about courtesy, never address a Lieutenant Colonel (or Lieutenant anything for that matter) as "Lieutenant Colonel." Drop the Lieutenant and address the officer as "Colonel." The "Lieutenant" part of the title is a technicality of rank, and it is insulting to an officer to use the full title.

Thanks, Lt. Col. My father always forgive by atrocious spelling, but he
would be grateful for your correction...
