You’re better off checking on an actual military message board, but I’ll try to help.


1) No idea. My Fiance is Navy, so I can’t help you there.

2) You won’t attend a Dining-In. You probably wouldn’t want to even if you could (so I’m told). Dining-Out is a formal dinner – never actually been to one, but I can’t say I feel like I’m missing out. Big formal parties aren’t my thing though.

3) I’d wear a nice dress. Formal but not an evening dress. Very minimum length is to the knee but you’re safer with somthing longer.

The only thing I have to add to @thursdayschild: is you dress according to your significant other’s uniform.  I think you can google particular uniforms for the civilian equivalent.

I’m partial to militaryissuedgirlfriends.com  I have the same screenname on there as I do on WB. If you’re looking for actual military information (like the green to gold program) http://forums.military.com/eve is useful.

Green to Gold: Don’t know too much about it, but I do know it has become very very competitive recently and odds of acceptance are increased if you already have some college coursework completed with good grades. The Army has been cutting tons of OCS candidates, and even ROTC and West Pointers are being held to higher standards as the 2LT ranks are over strength. 

Dine-in/out: Dine-ins are usually reserved to those within the unit. If you’re invited to a dine-out, match your dress to your SO’s uniform. If he’s wearing a regular tie with his ASUs, it’s safe to go cocktail length, if he’s wearing the bow tie I’d stick to floor length. Try to avoid anything too low cut or revealing.

Christmas Brunch: Conservative dress (knee length) or dressy slacks/blouse. If it’s being hosted at a home, I’d recommend bringing a hostess gift, but it doesn’t need to be elaborate.
