Alex swore today.....

Okay, it's cheesy but it got your attention, right?? =)

Today Alex was sworn in as a Captain in the Air Force. Yep, that's right, I am a very proud wife and just wanted to share the good news! We went in, signed all of the official documents, and after a short little ceremony he's official!

So, what does that mean? Basically nothing. He's not active duty until he enters Officers Training in June so being made a captain today is just so they can get all of the paperwork sorted and get his orders issued. But as soon as he's entered into the system he can get his military ID and we can start getting discounts! Fun, fun! It was kinda funny to hear the recruiter actually call him Captain Gubler afterwards when he was having him sign the final forms. And yes, Alex thinks that this is going to make it so he's the boss now because "I'm higher ranked--you're just a civilian..." Ya right! We finally settled on me calling him Captain Dork. I think it suits! j/k He's really AWESOME! Love you!! =)

So here's the photos!

Congrats!! How strange to think of you as a military family. I think you are going to love it. Zaylee doesn't look like she is too sure about all of it.

Brooke said...

Congrats! Speaking of dicounts if you ever get to Hawaii you should check out the Hale Koa (military only) five star hotel. It was awesome! Good luck being a military family and thank you & Alex for serving our country!
