    SouthernQueen! (actually all yall read this)

    Advertisements
    Today at work we were doing a workshop on military culture and one of the speakers was a navy guy, retired vice adm I think. We found out in our whole group (like 100 people) that nobody was a navy vet or navy spouse. So the speaker started talking about how tradition was important in the navy and asked us if we knew who got to come off the ship first for a homecoming. I was the only who knew the answer! And I only knew it because someone here told me that the new dads get to come off the ship first. Yay!

    (I think the person who told me was Southern-Queen but I could be wrong?) Thanks for helping me look good at work though lol whoever that was!

    I don't think it was me. I would love to take credit for that but I really don't think it was me.

    Glad you were the only one who knew thus looking good at work. And yay! for whomever it was that told you.

    I thought all branches dismissed we dads first and then did first kiss winners. Didn't know that was just a navy thing.

    Hmm it was a long time ago! Maybe I just assumed it was you because you're super smart lol.

    Enthused Meerkat I don't know about all the branches but at DH's homecoming they just had everyone stand in formation and then dismissed them all at the same time. I know there was at least one new dad there but they didn't single any out or anything. It would be a nice thing for the other branches to do too though! No first kiss winners either.

    That's really kind of cute... I didn't know that. Though, if I were there I'd be like I don't care just let me at my DH, lol.

    Glad you got to look good at work! lol

    I have never heard of it being done at the bases DH has been at, not even just his sqd but any. With the AF, it is just whomever gets off the plane first (from what I have seen). Than of course which ever spouse can run and drag (if need be) the kids faster than the others lol.

    Me, I just kinda hang back and try not to get trampled and wait.
