Military Banquet

 We were invited to a military appreciation banquet a few weeks ago.  It was held by the Shriners in Garland.  Neither of us knew what to expect but it was great.  They did an empty table ceremony and an enlistment ceremony, both very moving.  The enlistment ceremony was actually "mock" but not many people knew that and so they were all very moved to see the four "future Sailors" swear in.  H participated and the same person that swore him in at MEPS was the one that led the ceremony.  We heard an amazing story from an Air Force Colonel who was a POW in Vietnam.  A prisoner for 6 years and 3 months.  An Admiral gave H his first "coin" making it all that much more special.  I took my place as a military wife with support and love from strangers, what an incredible feeling.  I know it is just the beginning.  ♥ g
