Third Lieutenant?

Today is the day before I am commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. All of our training requirements were completed earlier, we're technically no longer considered Officer Trainees. But without that commission, we're in a rather humorously titled status known as "Third Lieutenant." Check out the rank on the shoulder boards.
The cool kids still ride at the back of the bus.
Ah, the memories of OTS. And I get to revisit them every couple of years as I get sent back to Maxwell AFB for additional professional military education.
