Colonel - or rather, Brigadier General William "Walker" Adams now - had read the letter. Once, twice, three times, then a fourth time to add up the numbers.
New CO's would have to be selected, despite him accepting the offer. While a part of him wanted to reject it, there was nothing else for him; he was not ready to retire, to pass the torch just yet. Captain Geist was good, but still needed more experience, needed to be shaken a bit more and come out stronger for it.
But in the meantime, another CO would have to be selected, another Bravo soldier promoted to help command Bravo's expanding forces.
A thought entered his mind. Why one CO? Why not strike a balance of sorts? A team - a Sergeant and a Tactician, two distinct commands simultaneously to ensure a stronger front? Battles were getting bigger - so why not increase command?
Walker pulled the roster of Bravo personnel, and began to shift through the more experienced members, looking for those who had experience and command potential. Several names came up, and several letters were sent. A test would likely be needed.
