It was a completely different thing for me to actually be welcomed into our new battalion. I was extremely nervous, but also very anxious to meet all the ladies. Our battalion XO's wife planned the event and it was absolutely wonderful ... low-key but special, and a fabulous night of meeting fantastic new ladies. Sending HUGS to all who helped and attended ... I feel very welcomed and very lucky to be a part of such a neat group!
|Each lady introduced themselves and placed a flower in a vase etched with the battalion crest. The vase was my welcome gift ... and I cherish it! This was such a neat event for me.|
