Happy Independence Day 2008

Photo taken during Chaplain's Prayer for Troops and Veterans, March 9, 2006 at St. Paul's Chapel, Columbia University. Holding the flag are a US Army Captain, a US Army ROTC cadet (now Lieutenant), a USMC officer candidate (now Lieutenant), a USMCR Corporal, a former USMCR Marine, and a former US Army soldier (me!), all Columbia students. The NCOIC of the ceremony is a former US Army soldier. The Captain, both former soldiers, and former Marine served in Korea.

Update: With inspiration from the Nathans hot dog eating contest, which Joey Chestnut won again over Takeru Kobayashi, I celebrated the day with hot dogs and Yoo Hoo (Yoo Hoo is an Army nostalgia thing for me) . . . you know what, my stomach just isn't as tolerant as it used to be.
