    Im swearing in the same day here in NY. I was told to dress comfortable (shirt/jeans), because its nothing fancy or anything. "Dress like your going to MEPS" is what he said.

    From videos I have seen CaptNick has the plan...All blue jeans and t-shirts with an occasional button up or pull over in the mix.
    I want to finally set it free, So show me how to see what Your mercy sees, Help me now to give what You gave to me...Forgiveness, Forgiveness

    It is pretty laid back. The officer that swore me in prepared a speech directly from "A Fee Good Men", the one given by Jack Nicholson in the courtroom. It was neat to hear it. We had a few laughs; but the actually repeating of the oath was serious of course.

    DEP= Delayed enlistment.
    I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted Coastie, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

    I DEP'd in a week and half ago. Everyone was in jeans and following MEPS dress code, as you go through inspect beforehand as well. I had on jeans, a black shirt, and a pair of earrings to "dress it up." We stood relaxed at ease or parade rest except for the actual taking-the-oath part. Family and friends packed in the tiny room to take video and pictures. It was pretty cool.

    You had family for the DEP? Don't you have to "re-oath" when you actually leave?

    When I DEPed in there were nine of us Coasties there (and pretty no other branch) and not one family member lol Weird how each MEPS is so different.

    Colin didn't DEP in at all, the first time he was sworn in was the Tuesday morning that he left. We were there. There was only one other Coastie being sworn in and we were the only parents in the room at all. No other family there except us. We got a lot of nice pictures but I did feel bad for the other enlistees that had no one there.

    Yes, we did have family in there. We were mixed in with the 5 Navy guys who were shipping out that day and all of their families were there, as well. And yes, we'll have to take the Oath again to swear into Active Duty the day we ship out. It IS weird how each MEPS is different.

    I read somewhere the Dec 07 company won't get to participate in operation fireside.
    It's also not leave, it would be liberty.

    I thought that would be cutting it really close on that 3 week mark... You never know, they always have more families volunteer then recruits to participate. So things may change once you are there. Prepare to not have the libbo, but if you get it, then be surprised and enjoy!

    ....sitting around the Christmas tree in the squad bay, singing Christmas Caroles with your beloved Company Commander, opening presents, a nice leisurely meal...WAIT, that's a dream!

    They usually don't let you participate in Operation Fireside until after week 3 because they don't want to disrupt your adjustment to military life...so it could be just another training day...but hope springs eternal! Good luck.

    Christmas, this year, would be Saturday, the start of the 4th week for the Dec 7th shippers. That's why I have a feeling it will be CC discretion on that company.
