This is a photo from my Husbands Commisioning. Sorry for the bad photo, but the transparancy overlay did not want to work with me.
Journaling: When this photo was taken, I was one the happiest women in the world. Not only was my fiancé, Rob, being commissioned as a Lieutenant in the United States Army, but my brother, another Lieutenant was administering his oath Rob had worked very hard to get to this moment. I felt he had truly earned his commissioning. TJ was so honored that Rob had asked him to administer the oath. Rob could pick anybody he knew who was also an Officer, and out of everybody, he choose TJ. I was so proud of “my guys” up there on that stage. They looked great in their dress greens. They looked every inch the soldiers that they truly are. They seemed to portray a code of honor that is ever present in their daily lives. Whenever I think of them in the Army, I think of this picture. The army has brought good things to both their lives, and they both serve their country with pride.
