During a reenlistment/commissioning oath is it proper protocol to call everyone to attention prior to the oath being given? I seem to recall that when I reenlisted that was how it was done. Anyone know of place where details like this are formally gathered together for reference?
Possibly in OPNAVINST 1710.7A.

Democracy will survive until the government figures out it can bribe the people with their own money.
FWIW-It wasnt done at my husbands commissioning, or any other I've attended recently (quite a few in the last year). Stood for the parading of the colors, the invocation, and the arrival and departure of the official party...... and to walk up and put the new shoulder boards on him during his !
I vaguely remember seeing attention called if it was done during quarters, but not in a church or more public setting with family and friends involved. the only one at attention is the one recieving the oath and the one giving it. Looking at pictures now, at my husbands commissioning the only ones standing for the oath are the Captain reading the oath (a CO from a previous command), the MC and him.
PS there's a navy mustang website with sample invites, programs, order of events etc. If you pm me your email address I can send you our files from this summer as well.

Thanks. My commissioning is tomorrow and I used an example from a mustang site to get started on the script for my ceremony. The question originated from a senior chief buddy of mine who is going to MC for me. I could not recall if the call to attention was simply for the participants or not. I think I am going to forgo the call to attention simply because I do not want to be that formal.
Thanks for your input.
