Joe Cardona makes the Grade ... of Full Lieutenant

Okay, Navy ranks are weird. A Navy Full Lieutenant is the equivalent of a Captain in the Air Force, Marines, or Army … and a Navy Captain is the equivalent of a Full Bird Colonel.

So, Patriots Long Snapper has made Full Lieutenant in the Navy, pay grade O-3. This actually happened a week and a half ago. The cool thing is that the Navy chose to hold his promotion ceremony in front of his (Patriot) teammates.
