    Do you know if that is typical for when a soldier makes rank?

    We don't have anything nearly as elaborate (Air Force). O3 is a fairly easy rank to achieve for the AF officers. It's based on time in grade/time in service. No testing or board until O4 (Major). More or less the same as E4 for us enlisted peoples.

    The whole ceromony. When we make rank, other than the more higher ranks, it's a simple handshake by the commander and that's about it.

    Well, to be totally honest, I wasn't really sure WHAT to expect. It was a bit more Pomp & Circumstance I suppose. Perhaps that's due to it being a move to Captain. Not sure. I was just really blessed to have been given the chance to do the "pinning." Didn't know whether that was permissible or not, but apparently so.
