Cyle's Commissioning...

In December we had the opportunity to go to Utah and be there for my little brother's commissioning as an officer in the Army. I am so proud of both of my brothers and their desire to serve their country.

We had such a blast staying with all the family that came to stay at cousin Beverly and Homer's beautiful home in Lindon. We all wanted to support Cyle; we made the trek from Colorado, my parents drove in from Oklahoma, my grandmother from Reno flew in, and "Aunt Bamma" and "Uncle Snort" and their family came up from Vegas. It was so great being all together!

The ceremony was in the brand new, BEAUTIFUL Hinckley Alumni building. There was a great speech by a retired General. My father was able to give Cyle the oath (the only one to do so from memory). Some of the best advice I heard was to the newly commissioned officers reminding them that no matter what rank them someday achieve, their wife outranks them by one. :) Love it!

Here are some pictures from the event...
