This morning we got up early Mike dressed in his whites, we picked up Sara (Aaron’s girlfriend) and headed to North Milwaukee to the Military Entrance Processing Station or MEPS as it’s called. Aaron had spent the day there Tuesday doing all he needed to joint the Army National Guard. However, he knew a very special military officer he wanted to perform the swearing-in ceremony for him – his father.
Here’s the pictures from this morning where Capt Mike Eklund swore in his son Aaron Eklund.
Now may I proudly introduce PV2 Aaron Eklund of the Army National Guard. He’ll be serving while he continues to attend University of Wisconsin Madison. There he’ll be with the ROTC program except when he takes the winter semester off for boot camp. Upon graduation he’ll be commissioned as an Officer and plans to work for the governor’s office in helping with preparedness for pandemics and bio hazards.
Our family is proud to serve.
