Swearing-In a.k.a. Officially Becoming a Peace Corps Volunteer

It's graduation day! Or it at least it sure feels like it. After 10.5 intensive weeks of training, we are no longer "Peace Corps Trainees" but official "Peace Corps Volunteers!" The PC Swearing-in oath:

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,
That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same,
That I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion,
And that I will well and faithfully discharge my duties in the Peace Corps.
So help me God."
Very official no?

Ben and I reppin' our Peace Corps bags
(actually it's only mine - his bag is just blue)
All 43 of us wore matching pagne tissue.
Each PCV created their own design.
Even my entrepreneur showed up! Old school pic-style!
