Josten's Graduation

Josten, third in line. They stood to be recognized not only as graduates, but the newest officers.

They walked in last, in order to be set above the rest.

Proud family
I'm so glad that we were able to be here for Josten's graduation. Sadly, Jehkiah's second wedding reception was scheduled the same day so none of the family was present for this event. I was very emotional; so proud of all that Josten's accomplished. He's such a good man. The ceremony was particularly inspiring as the military came in last....just to set them apart from the rest of the graduating class. Then they had them stand (we all stood) so proudly as they swore these young men in. Officer Cornett...I like the sound of that.

December 10th, we drove down to Moscow, Idaho to support Josten as he was commissioned an officer in the Army (2 Lt.), graduating from the ROTC. Dad and Sarah got to pin on his bars, which was the highlight of the evening. We are so proud of Josten--he's a good man, and great officer! Afterward, we all went to Shari's Restaurant for dinner and family time!
