Did you do anything special for the ceremony/celebration?
Thanks! No nothing special, just a copy of everything. Although, I was sworn in at a different recruiting station then I was assigned because I'm out of town. There was some mention of getting a displayable certificate, something nice to hang on the wall that states you are a commissioned officer in the Navy. I was told that the certificate might have been sent to the recruiting station I was assigned to. Not sure.
Well, you should have the actual commission. A commission is a physical (and fancy) piece of paper, and a lot of people frame and hang that.
Also, maybe you didn't get the phone interview because you already had a clearance through the Marines? Just a thought.
