Hey all! I have to say, I'm having trouble finding certain information on military customs, and honestly, most of what I'm finding online is WRONG!
So, I thought I'd ask here, since you all are so smart and some of you have been there/done that
I'm a Navy Vet ('05-'11), and my fiance is Active Duty Navy (I know, shocking, lol), we're not having a military wedding, but quite a few of our friends are in the military, and my grandfather is retired. My question is: do we include military ranks on escort cards? We will be using them on the invitations, does that mean we should include them? If we do, should we use the more "technical" address because it's shorter and would fit on the cards more easily?
Here's an example of what I mean:
Formal: Petty Officer Second Class Lena R. Parent
Technical: STG2(SW) Lena Parent
For that matter, my brother is also a doctor, do I put "Dr." or "M.D." on his escort card? I do apologize if this has been brought up before, I did do a search in the forum, but didn't find anything. If there is another thread with the info, would one of you post the link? Thanks!
