I participated in this event last year. I was reenlisting and had 19 years of service at the time. This event was very well coordinated and managed. It was a week I will remember for the rest of my life. I suggest any family members that are not sure about attending this year, re-think their descision. They will not regret their decision to attend this event. To reinlist is a special moment for any soldier. The re-up at our Nation’s Capitol with family members present is the ultimate experience.
