I swore into the Air Force today.

The ceremony was held at the 436th Aerial port, here in Dover. My dad, the commander, presented my oath. It was a great day. At first, I was only expecting my parents and my recruiter, but it didn't end up like that. There were 2 chiefs there, both of which coined me, as well as many other high ranking enlisted troops and officers. It was a great honor to be in their presence.

The command chief master sergeant of Dover AFB personally asked if he could attend. He gave me a coin

This thread would be useless without pics and a video too

My dad and me:


Me with my recruiter:


My dad, Chief Wood, and i dont know the guy on the far right:


My mom and Chief Wood:


My dad's commander's coin:



Chief Enriques' coin:



Chief Wood's coin:



Last, but not least, the videos:

My mom's prayer:

I don't understand this coin business, what do they all represent? and you got them all just for enlisting?

Typically what happens is when you or your unit does something that is consdidered good or "special" the higher ups come and give it to you as a gift. Then if you are at the club and sitting at the bar the tradition is if someone lays his or her coin down you have to trump it with yours or the round is on the person with the lowest lvl coin.....its just one of those tradition things.....I have a few but my lowest one is from a O-6 and then it goes up from there.

I don't remember what my 4th coin is, but these are pretty high up there.

My highest is an E9 for enlisted. I'm not sure about officers.

For now, I am just doing the reserves. Once I finish my degree I will consider applying for the active duty swap. If I did that I would do intel, but then again who knows. That is 4 years down the road and I'm sure my opinions will change.

For now, Air Trans Management for me

The cool part is that I got sworn in at the USAF's largest aerial port

I'll be stationed with the 86th APS in McChord AFB

These people work for/with my father and respect him. I have interacting with Chief Enriques numerous times and he says I am a good kid, so he honored me with a coin. I thought it was pretty cool

I got a coin but it was a basic af coin. youll get coins for whatever reason for doing stupid things in your career. Some people cherish (spe?) and some people just give them away to their kids. by now ive gotten so many useless ones and then the ones that they always try to sell you i just give them to people. Only 2 of them mean something to me
