Turning Blue Ceremony – May 4, 2011
We are getting back into the swing of things after returning home from Fort Benning, GA for PVT Ben Jeffrey’s graduation last week. While Sandra and I flew home Saturday, Ben flew to Idaho to visit his older brother who lives out there. His, along with his brothers flight who is home for a visit, arrived last night, (Tuesday), around 9:00pm in Rochester, NY. Of course flying through many time zones has a way of messing up your body clock. So, as I was walking out the door this morning around 4:00am, Ben was walking in after visiting with some friends he hasn’t seen since mid-January.
While I did try to keep on General Sarge posts while we were away, I took many more pictures than just what you saw. I’ve had a number of people ask if I have more pictures of graduation. Of course I do! As I’ve been trying to figure out the best way for everyone to see the pictures I came up with an easy way to do it.
Many times when we hear the word graduation, we think of one main event. But, I ended up with three categories of pictures;
- Turning Blue Ceremony
- National Infantry Museum
Here’s the plan. For the next three days I will do a post for each portion of the graduation celebration. I’ll place one or two pictures directly in the post and then link to more pictures on Flickr.
