@bremnerschmitz , does your FI want touches of his service included in the wedding. MH and I were both serving when we were married. Neither of us wanted the Army included in our ceremony AT ALL. Talk to him before you add anything. 1. A lot of us don't want our everyday job included in our wedding. You probably wouldn't add it in if he was a construction worker or a teacher. 2. It can get very cheesy very fast.
Being married wouldn't change anything about the situation. You'd still be apart. I'd finish school and save what you can for the wedding you want to have.
Many Chaplains require several sessions of pre-marital counseling.You can have a small ceremony at the courthouse. You can even have a small number of guests witness sand then go have a nice dinner.
Those are not my experiences, as an MP. I have seen SMs punished because they married with intentions of having a ceremony later while lying to family. Those people pretended to be engaged while really married. I've seen charges in my own unit of conduct unbecoming an NCO and fraud with intent to collect benefits.
First, it depends on his rank. He must be an NCO or Officer to qualify for a saber arch or sword arch. Second, most honor guards and individual units no longer perform them unless you are a member of said honor guard. Most of the time when it is performed, it is actual friends and unit members of the groom or bride.He can try the honor guard for his unit or the PAO, but you may be on a wild goose chase.
