Illinois Army National Guard Soldier Promoted to Major

Illinois National Guard Soldier Shawn Robertson of Lincoln, Illinois, was promoted to Major in a ceremony Aug. 23 at Camp Lincoln, Springfield, Illinois.

Robertson, who serves as the Support Officer for the 634th Brigade Support Battalion, headquartered in Sullivan, Illinois, received his commission through the Reserve Officer Training Corps at Illinois State University in 2005.

“We appreciate the sacrifices of your family,” said Lt. Col. Bradley Roach, Commander of the 634th. “Our end goal is to support the 3,600 Soldiers of the 33rd Brigade Combat Team. The support and sacrifices of your family allows us to take care of the 33rd’s Soldiers and their families.”

“I appreciate the support of all you here today,” Robertson said. “I am pretty happy this promotion finally happened.”

Robertson was joined by his wife, Sarah, and their son, Reid.
