For the last three years, I have watched and captured the outstanding 50 GUN Salute to the nation on the 4th of July – Independence Day. It’s an amazing event that has been precisely executed by one of the elite platoons in the US military – The Presidential Salute Battery…nc nc

they’re still the best kept secret!
I spent a week on a special mission. I wanted to find out peoples’ awareness in the Washington DC area. I asked about the sports teams, and most people knew without any coaching what teams they had for baseball, football, basketball, hockey and more. I also asked who would defend Washington DC if a disaster struck. I even showed photos of …

For those who have followed me on Facebook, you have seen how from Saturday morning in the frenzy of the snowstorm, I attempted daily to get into Arlington National Cemetery. The mission was to capture some of the beauty of this hallowed place in the snow… ANC closed on Saturday, and when I arrived, the barriers were symbolically across Memorial Drive.
I turned around and decided that Sunday morning was probably a better choice and when I returned on Sunday, I found the roadway of Memorial Drive completely clear thanks to the efforts of the National Park Service. Alas, the gates of ANC were closed and locked …bfcb9 669d0

John Michael broke new ground when he published the “First” Calendar about the US Army’s 3d Infantry Regiment – “The Old Guard on Parade – 2009″ - The Escort to the President. Many have seen this regiment earlier this year as they led and participated in the Presidential Inauguration. Their ceremonial presence is only part of their story. After pouring through thousands of photographs taken primarily in 2009, a theme finally emerged to tell the story about these Soldiers that few people ever see.
Soldiers in this elite regiment are called upon to do a number of different missions on a daily basis… most of which the public never sees or is even aware. It’s hoped that the selection of these images provides a small glimpse of the varied assignments carried out and their contributions made as service to the United States of America…fb978 b5a78 bb516 1604c

You’ve seen this photo before… If you bought the calendar “The Old Guard on Parade – 2009″ it was on the cover. I then used it as a tribute to the POW/MIAs as a poster and then turned it into a postage stamp. Now until Thursday – 26 NOV 2009, you can save $5.00 by entering the code … Continue Reading…GHTime Code(s): e4b7a ef7c6 a6fca 1d0c6 nc
