Sunday, September 10

Stay tuned for more............

Today was very very busy. We got up at 5:00 and left by 6:00. Today was Operation Salute. This was a ceremony to celebrate the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. Here are a few highlights:

The ceremony was help at Penn State University which I have never been too. Very cool.

Besides my husband I have found another soldier whom I just adore. His speech was excellent.
I have my picture with him.

I saw the leader of the PA National Guard, MG Jessica L. Wright. A woman in charge. Very cool.

I met Govenor Rendell. I have a picture of him holding my sock in progress for me.

There was a tailgate party which was way awesome.

People from State College are an awesome group who did amazing volunteer work.

I found another reason to love Sheetz!

There was a concert after the ceremony. Craig Morgan and are you ready The BEACH BOYS!!
We were so close I coulda thrown stuff on the stage.

I was an amazing event that made my cry and laugh.

Pennsylvania has the BEST National Guard ever.

I have pics I have to download and will show on my blog this week. It is late now and we are all way tired.

That sounds like a very unusual but great day!!!! Not everyone gets to wake up early and do all that...
The military is a very different life and there is a lot of sacrafice from everyone involved, BUT...they sure know how to throw a shindig, don't they???
And the governor of PA with your sock in progress???? Goodness, that pretty much puts you at Yarn Harlot picture status...Go Sock Knitter, Go!!!!!!
