On May 11, 2018, Nick successfully completed his ROTC program at Pitt State and we were able to go watch him be sworn in as a second lieutenant in The US Army. It was such an honor and a very moving ceremony. Above is the entire group of cadets that took their oaths.
We had the privilege f pinning his lieutenant strips on his dress uniform - he made me practice beforehand so it would go smoothly and you'll see by the video below that it was successful!
Here he is saluting the first time as a lieutenant.
Out crew (minus the littles - they don't' sit well!)
The ceremony was moved indoors due to weather
