'Put his uniform on again'
I am an active duty Navy Nurse Practitioner, my husband is a Physician who retired from the Navy after 20 years. On Pearl Harbor day he put his uniform on again (and got a hair cut!) to swear me in as I was promoted to Commander. It was wonderful to have my husband be my promoting officer. I dedicated the ceremony to the Navy Nurses that were at Pearl Harbor. They showed more courage and dedication in those hours than many people will ever do in a lifetime.
