    Reenlistment

    Advertisements
    DH is reenlisting in the next couple months. He tasked me with figuring a unique/memorable/fun/interesting/not boring place to do his reenlistment.

    Any ideas?

    DH did his on a boat and then they all fished and had a bbq after. He was deployed and enjoyed getting out for the day.

    Must be a Navy thing. DH has never gotten to pick where he re-enlists. Where are y'all living? Are there any rules for where it can't be?

    I'm no help...my husband re-enlisted on the ship he was deployed on at the time. It was memorable though because he chose to do it St. Patrick's Day and he was on the USS The Sullivans.

    We're in Virginia.

    As far as I know, you can do it pretty much anywhere. People usually pick their current ship (DH does not want for various reasons) or someplace with either historic or personal meaning.

    Where are you guys stationed? A friend of mine went to Daytona and reenlisted on the start/finish line before the race. Favorite sports team? Contact them and see if they will arrange something where he can reenlist before a game.

    Hubs is in the Corps and he didn't get an option of where he did his re-enlistment.

    I think on a boat with fishing and BBQ sounds pretty fantastic, though!!

    It's not. My husband is Army and chose to do his at Garden of the Gods. I was able to go on the hike with them and everything.

    I am not familiar with virginia but I think a cool out-doorsy place would be nice.
