In the News Again

John’s unit inactivated at the end of last month, and they had a ceremony where they “cased the colors.”  It was actually kind of cool.  They wrap up the unit’s flag, and that symbolizes the end of the unit.  John was assigned to color guard duty for the inactivation and carried the US flag.  I went to the ceremony and took a few pictures and someone from John’s work forwarded photos of John’s photo in the newspaper, which I have also included in the photo strip below.

Also, as a teaser for more Germany pics, check out a photo taken in the car on our drive between our apartment and John’s work.

Pretty, huh?

John also has some exciting news to share, but I will let him post about that later. Stay tuned!
