The night started off with cocktail hour. We mingled and laughed. Most people stayed in groups with people that they know so it wasn't to nerve racking. Once we found our friends we had some good laughs. Then we were seating in the ball room, and the colors (flags) were brought in. There was some toast and some speeches. Then about 10 soldiers from another battalion at Fort Bragg sang Acapella which I thought was one of the coolest things. Soldiers singing Acapella who knew? Then we ate dinner. We had salad, chicken and rice, and cheesecake. It was actually REALLY good. Yay for good free food. Then after dinner there was more speeches and awards given. Then the colors were retired and the dance floor was opened up and the DJ started playing music.We got our photos taken and also took some photo booth pics. Which I thought was one of the best parts of the night. Then headed back into dance. A lot of the people left after the dinner and speeches but I thought one of the best things was dancing. Not many people danced but Clark and I had a great time. And I thought the DJ was actually pretty good, meaning he played all the songs I liked! So yeah I would say our first militaty ball was a success. We had fun and it was good.
