Retirement Day Ceremony

After 26 years of service in the US Army Chris had his official retirement ceremony this past Thursday morning.  While we are not leaving until the second week of June, we scheduled the ceremony this past week to allow plenty of time for family to fly in to join us .  Thanks to the band's publicity section for the wonderful photo of us at the ceremony.  After 26 years in the US Military Academy Band at West Point, of which I've been along for the whole ride, the good and bad along the way, Chris will leave in June and we'll start a whole new chapter of our lives.

This is a photo of the band during the 2007 outdoor summer concert series at Trophy Point.  There is a beautiful view from this location out to the Hudson River, it is a very pretty place to have concerts each summer.

When we head out in June we have lots of great memories and photos to take with us.
