Randy's Promotion to Staff Sergeant

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I am so proud of my husband! He is my hero! Today he was promoted to Staff Sergeant! Usually a superior would pin him, but today our family was able to help out.

Our daughter Alyssa, took off his old rank, then I pinned him with his new rank, then our son Brandon came and punched him in the chest. Punching in the chest after pinning on new rank is an Army tradition, and Brandon was too happy to accommodate his daddy on that one...LOL!!! He was able to punch his dad without getting in trouble...LOL!

I am so thankful to GOD for giving me a wonderful husband, and a wonderful dad to our kids. We are truly blessed! I love you GOD!!!

Here is the video of my hero receiving his new rank. It was very windy today outside NATO headquarters here in Belgium, so excuse the audio.


Congrats to Randy and your entire family! God bless you richly in your every endevour!

Congratulations! My SIL is a Sergeant in the Guard. He retired from Regular Army after Dessert Storm.

He has now been to Iraq and is headed to Afghanistan. Altogether he has served 16 years so we do know and understand how very proud you are!!
