Hello! My DS is a first year AFROTC cadet & I'm very new to all this. We just received an invitation to Dining Out with ROTC. The invitation states that Military should wear "Mess Dress" and Civilians "Formal Attire". I'm looking for a little more clarification on what specifically the parents should wear...Would that be Tux or Dark suit/tie? Evening gown/coctail dress? Thanks for any insight! I'm really looking forward to seeing my DS decked out in full uniform for the first time! He'll also be performing with the AFROTC Blades drill team - I'm probably not calling it the right thing - shhhhh - don't tell him!
