  3. Love those wooden houses! And it's amazing to see people wearing jackets. I think I need to live in New England from Easter until ... well ... actually all the time. :-)

  5. Great pics! Thank you for sharing. In pic #1 the SGT on the far left had been stationed in Alaska at some point during peacetime in the Army. The center SGT spent some time overseas; unclear whether Asia or Europe. Looks like during peacetime as well. The gentleman on the far right spent some time in Vietnam and is a recipient of the Bronze Star and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. Love the DI in pic #10. The hair might not be as high and tight as it used to but that mouth could easily reduce you in a second! Nice to see them taking today to honor our fallen. - hrplo

    2. I think the buck sergeant in the 1st photo, on the left, has an expert infantryman's badge, not a CIB.
