    Promotion celebration?

    Advertisements
    With Tech result coming out I was wondering what people have done for their SOs when they were selected. I don't wanna jynx it but I'd like idea just in case he does make it. Banners? Or something less flashy? He worked really hard for it this year and if he makes it I want to show him how proud I am.

    When DH picked up E6 (the equivalent of Tech Sgt) I gave him a challenge coin case for his office and a letter telling him how proud I was of his accomplishments.

    That's a good idea! He has sooooo many of them. I don't know if he'll have an office though.

    More seriously, is there something he's been saving money for or something you've heard him say he wants? A reward for a military milestone doesn't in itself have to be military themed. It can be if that's something that would appeal to him, of course, but it's not a requirement.

    Well for the most recent promotion he got to lift his jeep. Yup thats what he got. Normally something like this would not happen but because of the type of promotion i agreed to the jeep.

    Particularly since his last promotions have been as long as you didn't kill yourself you were being promoted.

    So I may have gone a little crazy but I'm so proud of him. The last year has been extremely rough and he still worked his ass of for this. I got him an engraved pen and case, a nice bottle of whiskey, a new computer screen (on sale), a balloon, and a card

    ETA: I'm known for being a bit extra sometimes when it comes to gifts.

    Congrats to your husband! Mine made it, too!

    I'm super proud of him as well but we'll probably just go out to dinner to celebrate.
