There isn't a standard certificate for promotions. You'll have to make one or snipe one.

Thanks. Thought that may be the case but was hoping it wasn’t. I’ll try and create some.

LT Smith:

To my knowledge, we've never had certificates for promotions for seniors.
We have certificates for training level awards, though (Garber, et al).

If Brunswick is interested in doing up ceremonial certificates for promos, I think that's a fine idea.
You could take this as far as you'd like (i.e. commercial plaques, etc.) but please ensure that your unit Commander, Captain Sp., is in the loop, ok?


Best wishes, and thanks for your service,

Thanks for the comment. Yes, proper notification to Captain Speight and others in the chain of command will be observed. Never seen it done during my years but think it is a worthy thought. Randy

Our unit prepares certificates. Whatever the person does with them thereafter (i.e., mount it, throw it away, etc.) is their business.

The certificate gets presented in front of the unit to commemorate the accomplishment and encourage others to continue to progress.

If you want a template, shoot me a PM.

Under the new promotion system, there is a direct connection between levels and grade.  In my case, the Garber award was the achievement, with a ribbon and a big fancy certificate.  The promotion was kind of an afterthought as rank is meaningless in this organization.  In the case of my squadron there are several retired military officers who came in as LTC's without knowing much about CAP at all, and still don't.  They got level 1 - and stopped.

The Wilson award used to mean even more than it does now because there was NOT a promotion tied to it, you were already an O-5.  You got it because you were motivated to completely finish the PD program.  Now there will be people who get it just to make LTC.

I intend to get my Wilson and remain a Major.  I like holding the least common rank in CAP.

MI Wing had promotion certificates dating way, way back WIWAC and I worked in Personnel at Wing HQ.  And of course, later (see the attached)

(I only handled organizational actions and the distribution of the MML to units. Occasionally, because I knew how to do it and I was a bit of a perfectionist about it, I'd type up promotion certificates to accompany the approved CAPF 2 back to the unit)

My date of rank as a Captain was May 15, 1986.  I had 33 years in grade when I finally made Major.

That was based on my making Captain in the US Army that day - and looking back on it, all I ever got was the one page promotion order.  Even my Honorable Discharge didn't look like much.

I have templates for each grade. I cant remember where I got them or I would give credit where credit is due. You can see them here (removed until watermark fixed)

The file properties indicate they were created by someone named "Gerald Brann" in 2012, however the watermark graphic in these is no longer allowed for CAP use.

Didn't even think to check the properties. Well, at least that's fairly simple to replace. Any recommendations? I imagine probably the Seal.

The triangle prop would probably be what the branding people would suggest.
