I went to the Aviation Ball, the annual full-dress dining out for the 28th Combat Aviation Brigade. Last night's event was bigger than last year with more than 300 soldiers and guests representing Pennsylvania Army Aviation.
Since I knew I was leaving for a meeting in New Orleans early the next morning, I gave Capt. Miller the memory card from my camera before I left. So I have no pictures. Eventually I will get the chip back.
It was a lot of fun. The Hershey Lodge is big enough to hold an event for a group this size but without all the parking and traffic hassles of a city location.
In June all of my Army last-year countdowns start. June 6-22 will be my last Army summer camp. Every month thereafter I will do something else for the last time in our annual round of training. Then in May 2015, I will go back to being a civilian.
More on that later.
