Almost a Navy Officer

If you are ashamed to stand by your colors, you had better seek another flag.

I swear in as a Navy Reserve Public Affairs Officer on Friday.  I’m extremely excited and can’t wait.

On the other hand, I’m a bit nervous.  This is signing eight years of my life away (though I could drill for two, I’d still be able to be called up for a total of eight years). I have no idea what will happen in the next eight years.  I’m sure I’ll be called to active duty at least once.  I understand that and am ready. And that’s scary.

But it’s oh-so-exciting to be able to do this. The excitement and the certainty completely outweigh the uncertainty and the nervousness.

  1. You should also be proud!!!!

    8 years is a long time but being an Officer you have the ability to change lives.


  2. This is excellent! I’ve decided to do exactly the same thing once I finish my degree and we get back stateside. Congratulations!
