Naval Academy families prepare to watch online commissioning ceremony

Judeen Bellantoni, from New York, is going to try and replicate some of the commissioning traditions, such as the first salute. She plans to have her brother pin on her son Midshipman Robert Bellantoni’s shoulder boards and her nephew give him his first salute. No one else in their family is in the military, but the traditions still hold meaning for them.
