    It was with great pride that I witnessed my son being sworn in at his Navy ROTC unit! And, by the way, I must say that he looked great in his Navy whites!

    It is indeed a grand thing to witness isn't it?! Allow me to share in your pride by offering so many congrats, you'll not be able to count them all. Best wishes to him as he begins his journey to becoming an outstanding Officer. Your pride is in it's infancy though. Just wait for even bigger & better stuff to come! :thumb:

    Lots of luck to you! Even though the programs differ from unit to unit, I am sure they have a plan that will challenge you and make you work to be a great officer!

    I know exactly how you feel. Our son reported to his unit last Monday and was sworn in. He then went through "freshman orientation" with the unit for the week. We saw a huge difference between Monday and Saturday when we got to see him in his whites. We are so proud of him and all the others who choose to serve.

    ah! i think i understand. it's a process with freshman orientation. our NROTC unit doesn't have freshman orientation, so that probably explains why there isn't a graduation process from the orientation....
