  • When I got my commission, I honestly didn't do much. DH was deployed. My mom came out and took a couple pictures. My recruiter gave me a cake. That was it. ETA: I was Air Force, so I did COT. I don't know anything about ODS.

  • DH just swore me in.  He is an Officer.  I was already an Air Force Officer, so I was just sworn into the Navy.  My AF commission was void, once I swore into the Navy per my contract. 

    Have fun at ODS!  It's not that bad.  The Navy is amazing! I've enjoyed every minute of  my 7 years of commissioned service!

  • My H did ROTC, but when he commissioned we had a little family get together at a local park.  We all went to the ceremony, my MIL made some yummy food and we just celebrated his accomplishment as a family, it was really nice.

  • My DH commissioned before we met but he said they had a small reception with family and close friends. We also just went to his friend's commissioning in VA and they had a reception since a lot of people came from out of town to see him get commissioned.
