I took pictures from several angles of the sun setting on Muir Field, Fort Indiantown Gap, Pa., after the big snowstorm. The angles and blades of a Blackhawk helicopter do wonderful things to the light. I hope I captured a little of that.

Yesterday I was walking through the Flight Facility--the big hangar for helicopters--at Fort Indiantown Gap and saw a box lunch sitting on the corner of a recycling bin. Inside were the various packaged treasures below.
In our household, we do not buy snack food. Really. My wife blogs about frugality. This post for instance. No bags of chips, no cookies, nothing processed and printed with pretty faces. So while many soldiers simply toss these packaged meals, for my sons they are blessed manna from the Army Gods.
So I brought the box home. My sons ate it almost instantly.
The Army gives soldiers many benefits--and gives a few to my teenage, snack-limited sons.
