I am looking for advise on graduation and commissioning announcements. My son graduates on April 30th, and gets commissioned an hour later. Is there protocol for the announcements/ invitations to the ceremony? Are they done separately? Is there some kind of standard issue from the Navy for such a thing?
My name is Diane (dbs55). I live in Media PA about 10-15 miles southwest of Philadelphia. I talked to Ryan last night and he passed the Math test, not as high as he wanted but I told him just keep working on getting the GPA higher. He talked to his advisor and found out how to get help, he is having trouble with the homework and is now doing better. How did your daughter like her sea tour? I mentioned her to Ryan and he wanted to know her name - he may know her
I hope so Paulette. Her father and I pray for her everyday. She really wanted to be in the Navy so badly. She thought it was her life's calling (?) I just hope she makes it out the other side okay. I think it has already changed her, but not for the better. Violet
