The old fort on the Fort Bliss post before dawn

Sunday, I did something I have never before done. I spent the night on an Army post. In fact, I had never even been on a military post or base before. It’s amazing how huge the place is!

Yesterday, on the way to the airport to catch my flight home, I shot this photo of the historic old fort located on the post. I have to say, my new camera takes kick-butt photos because this was taken before dawn. Yes, I did adjust the shadows in Photoshop, that’s why it’s grainy, but you get the idea.

Also on the way out of the post, we saw hundreds of young men and women in their camo, running. It doesn’t matter what one feels about the situation in Iraq, it’s still a sobering thing to see these young people training to go there. They will soon be placing their lives in danger for all of us. I got a little choked up by the realization when they were running past us. All I can think is that I hope each and every one of them come home safely…and soon!

Regardless of political leanings, they deserve our complete respect. My hat’s off to them!
