Upon graduation, he received a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army and took a position with the 3-21st. Hoe's father, Allen Hoe, attended the ceremony along with unit leadership. Following the ceremony, unit members hosted a traditional luau-type meal in honor of 1st Lt. Hoe.
