Talk about timing.

Just as APTA celebrates 100 years of helping the physical therapy profession make history, even more history is made: the first-ever promotion of a PT to the rank of brigadier general in the U.S. Army.

Although the actual promotion hasn't yet happened, the Army announced that Col. Deydre Teyhen, PT, PhD, an APTA member, will be advanced to the rank of brigadier general when the system of retirement allows for that promotion to happen. Teyhen won't know when that will be until closer to the actual event, but the bottom line is, it's not "if" — it's a matter of "when."
