Captain Edgerton (#176 Uniform)
Charlie ran his fingers over the shinny buttons and captain's bars.
“I can’t believe I’ve never seen you in this.”
Ian just shrugged. “I’ve never been big on wearing it.”
“Well you look very handsome Captain Edgerton.” Ian shrugged again. Charlie ran his thumb across a blue and red ribbon on Ian’s chest. “Distinguished Service Cross.”
“Would have probably been a Medal of Honor if I’d gotten more of my guys out alive.”
Charlie scowled. “You don’t have to do this.”
Ian took a breath. “Yes I do.”
Charlie kissed him on the cheek. “Well I’m very proud of you.”
