I would contribute to his uniform buy out. OCS is a pain in that you have to buy them all at one time. I think the knife would be more appropriate for commissioning. Or for commissioning you can do solid gold bars.

@Britk:  well you could just straight up buy some uniforms for him possibly. i’m navy, so i’m not as familiar with the number of uniforms he needs but check with SOs of his classmates who are prior enlisted. they can help with buying stuff on base

@deetroitwhat:   were you commissioned or enlisted. An O1 starts out with a base pay of nearly 3k a month,  not counting housing or food. And he’ll be married? Hes not going to want for anything financially, thats for sure. Nothing to shake a stick out. Even as enlisted after a certain rank its not bad. To make my pay now on the outside I’d have to make at least $25 an hour. 

 

@Britk:  I thought the KaBar idea was a good one!
