post #16 of 22
Isn't that something! That has been a tradition for a long, long time! When my husband made Tech Sgt the guys in the squadron were very brutal to him! They punched him so much & so hard that he had major bruising! I felt bad for him so I didn't punch him that time! When he made Msgt I was sooooooo ready to punch him!!

Have your thrown his party yet?? Let us know how it turned out ok!

Hi, TC! We are having his party on May 7th. So I have a bit of planning to do. I am trying to come up with the perfect cake for him. I am going to do a BCT like the one I first posted(his regimental crest). I was thinking of making a cake in the shape of an awards plaque with the BCT in the middle. I was going to add the words Congratulations above the BCT with his new rank and name below that. I was also thinking of adding his new rank-the shape of it- in the corners. What do you think? The cake would likely be a devil's food-he loves chocolate-with the raspberry kahlua cream filling from this site. Any ideas and help you could give me would be great!! Andhey, I am so ready for the punching, too!! icon_lol.gif

I planned my husbands promotion party for the whole squadron to come to (and they did too) in less then 2 1/2 weeks.... it took my husband forever to decide if he wanted to have a party or not. I made everything by myself, just had him grill.... We had hamburgers, hotdogs, schwein steaks, potato salad, macaroni salad, mac and cheese, fruit platter, veggie platter, beer (both German and American) sodas, wine coolers, juice for the kids, cookies, brownies, and of course a cake. and I did exactly what you were thinking... his new rank was on there. The only thing about these parties is they take more money then time really..... we spent ....gulp 400 on everything... of course by the time it was over, someone had taken up a collection (for me mainly since they knew I did it all myself) and we ended up getting 253 dollars back....its most rewarding to do that for your husband and Tanya you can do this....especially since you are so excited.....

(blasted spelling errors..I hate to see one on my posts...have to correct~)

I started 2 days prior...it wasnt a big deal... I made the mac and potato salad the day before... the cookies and brownies two days before and the cake the night before decorated it the morning of, and then handed everything to him..... the worst part was getting the stuff outside. The clean up was easy....all aluminum stuff, plastic utensils made it easier.

Thanks for all the ideas ,Flayv. I have been planning this party since he made the initial list in January. But now that I am working, I have to try to fit it into a schedule. the good part is that I took my vacation time from 1-9 May. Thank goodness for that. And that was before we knew he'd make it in May!! But I am looking towards the same thing-about 400 spent. Alot of that will come from the beer-German and American. But I think that I should have an easy enough time with it. And we aren't inviting the whole unit, since they are seperated between here and Vilseck. But if he could he would invite them and his entire unit from stateside, too!
Diane, they just have to get all of the records sent in with a Da photo included by a certain time for the Sr NCO boards in the Army. So it was mostly just hoping that when they looked through his packet he had enough time in grade, awards, school, etc to be picked up. But before this he did have to actually go to a board and be orally tested. So I guess that they all work in kind of the same way.

thats how they do SNCO in the air force too...once you make MSgt, the rest is pretty much boards... but I cant remember if they take a test too or what... I think they do, but the boards are what is hard...supposedly.
