Aggie Muster

I am going to give you a link to the background of this beautiful and sacred ceremony, one that I was so blessed to be a part of in Sacramento this year!

Having served on the Muster Committee for three years in college, it made me appreciate the amount of heart and soul that is put into this amazing ceremony. I cannot express in words the feeling I get when I hear Silver Taps after the Roll Call. **chills**

I had the honor of reading the Muster Tradition to our group and it was hard not to tear up at the memories and the wishes for family, friends, and Dave to be closer. I love my school and am excited to meet all these new Aggies!!

Julie took the photos of our group of around 50 Aggies that came to Muster! It was also Hazel's first Muster! (I will post them when she sends them my way!)

Land of the free, home of the brave?

It looks like we may be safe for another day with this crap government ridiculousness!! I received two calls yesterday that told me to expect to only get half of Dave's paycheck on the 15th and that if things didn't change that I should expect no paycheck until the mess was resolved. I was in shock to say the least.

How could the "land of the free, the home of the brave", be so unwilling to support those who named it? I do not fear for our survival because we have support and I have a job but I fear for my friends and the other military families who live paycheck to paycheck. These guys have a job that they will not walk away from even if they are not getting paid. They are not ABLE to walk away even if they wanted to.

On a happier are some pictures....enjoy :-)
