We live in the U.P. of Michigan, for now, which makes us pretty remote. Ed has quickly received paperwork, life is a whirlwind. The Official Orders arrived, then an email from D.C. explaining the next steps... Taking his Oath, which was not easy to do, being that he had to be sworn in by an officer. We called recruiting offices, reserve stations, Army, Guard, Coast Guard... and finally in Duluth, Minnesota a Medical Reserve Post was able to provide a super-friendly young man to administer the Oath of Office. What a memorable day!
