A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel got a pretty big promotion after he went to work for the United Arab Emirates, where he now heads the nation’s Joint Aviation Command and National Search and Rescue Center as a major general.

Stephen Toumajan retired as an Army lieutenant colonel in 2007, according to a recent report by Buzzfeed.com.
