I got a PM from Herkie earlier today:

"By the way,.... Call me captain. I got my promotion!

I am going back to the war again next week or two until my wounds are fully healed. It might not happen because the conflict is winding down---But that's what I said  weeks ago, right? and it's not yet over."

I don't think he wants to give his active regiment name out now.

Anyways, I got a PM from him and an update to share:

With his new rank of Captain, Herkie isn't a field operative anymore.  He's working in a forward operating base outside of the combat zone (but it's still close enough that one never knows...he told me to say this).  He brought his laptop and is doing work on FS stuff in his free time.

I should be said cap badge (if his army is organised the same way as mine). For example, artillery, combat engineer or logistical support.

Captain, Battalion S2 present posting. Assign at HQ. Before that, I was a lieutenant with the MBLT-5 (Marine Battalion Landing Team, infantry) in the 90's. I was put to reserve status after serving 3 years in the Jolo conflict where I was shot, a casualty. After that, I became a musician, a pianist/keyboard player and a singer, worked in several countries with a band (some years as a solo performer). I stopped in 2010 and put up two grocery stores. In May, this year, I am back in the military. I was called to service partly because of my knowledge of rebel guerrilla tactics and experience, and partly, a friend's recommendation--- comrade during my combat years, still active and a high ranking official.

There are many trades in each reg though.  I feel some translation is being lost here.  :p

We do have an "MOS" equivalent here, the specialty ID number. But that is already specific. I'm sorry I can't give that.:)

Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.  He hasn't been on this site in over a month according to his profile (sometimes in the past he's at least been able to come and get a quick post in).


Hopefully he'll get back soon and safe.
