I've finally hopped off the fence and decided to reenlist. However, I want my reenlistment ceremony to be something memorable and/or out of the ordinary.
This stems mostly from the fact that most of the reenlistments I have attended thus far have involved little more than finding an available closet-sized room with a flag in it. Since this is going to be the moment at which I give my country the next several years of my life, I would like it to be something special that I can look back on with pride.
So, I'm looking for some ideas, and when I happened across this forum, I figured who better to ask than those who work in the field. What are some of the better reenlistment ceremonies that you have seen? Thanks!
I re-enlisted while in Iraq. Like you, I wanted to make it somewhat memorable and decided to re-enlist on the steps of the Temple of Ur. Kinda symbolic and sappy, but the pictures were awesome. Here on Bragg, I've seen people re-enlist in front of the Iron Mike statue and some have gone to Airbone/Special Forces museum in Fayetteville. Maybe you have something like that in your area.
