Today was the graduation ceremony for the Plebes which made it through this hard training. It was a beautiful day and quite cool since the ceremony was early in the morning.....thank God. It started with the marching of the guard.
There wasn't the usual crowds of people because there were only eighteen Plebes that made it through the whole week and passed. After some of the officers spoke the Plebes were given their awards.
His grandpa and I were crying through the entire ceremony. Dino is the youngest of all our grandchildren and he really applied himself to achieve this honor. We are so very proud of him.
Dino wants to be in the NJROTC throughout the four years he is in high school, therefore, reaching some of the ranks before he enlists in the Navy. His plans are to become an engineer while doing his stint and going to whatever highest rank he can get. All of this he can explain to anybody who asks a lot better than I ever will be able to lolol.
