What I did Jan 07.
Held the ceremony at the Navy Air Museum Paxtuxent River Small stage erected in middle of Museum Pictures of children in uniform placed in front of podium (at the time they were both on deployment, son Army, daughter AF). Guests were invited to wear their Dress Uniforms, all services. You wouldn't believe how many people showed up in their uniforms...it was very cool. Many had to have them altered, but they said it was worth it. Music was on a small stereo and it was traditional Military Ceremony music, after the formal ceremony "Navy Music from around the world was played...very cool" Food was catered...very light fare. I presented a bottle of wine to all participants....
Commissioned by the Retired CAPT I currently work for Benediction given by Navy Retired CDR CPO Boards taken off of shirt by Retired Master Chief; New CWO2 Boards put on by Active Duty CWO3 First Salute rendered to cousin, Active Duty Master Chief.
It was awesome.
