This dress is FAR too cute!! And this story is WAY too funny! And kind of randomly, I was at Camp Geiger today, my husband is doing Sargent's course down there.
My best marine corp story? When I put his pins on upside down during his pinning ceremony when he got upgraded (or as they say in the marine corp, promoted). His commanding officer came over and corrected me while i was struggilng. My handmade dress was also a big hit, but mostly because it was a little too short and low cut. Whoops!
Man, I'd forgotten about the time I tried to sew his patches on upside down because I thought they looked better that way. He laughed and laughed, and showed my roommate who was a former marine. It's been a long time, but he usually doesn't forget stuff like that. Probably because of the upside down pinning ceremony
Oh man, the marine corp. i totally, totally don't get it.
eta: i mean, i don't get all the RULES of the marine corp.
