…since my last post. I’m very aware of it. In my defense, I took a job supporting FEMA’s hurricane recovery operations and I’ve been away from home for a while. While on the road, I limited myself to my Canon PowerShot point and shoot camera. I challenged myself to push its limitations and make good images.
On October 1, I boarded a plane and headed to the National Emergency Training Center in Emmittsburg MD. The NETC is home to the Emergency Management Institute and the National Fire Academy. The campus was a girl’s school before it assumed its present duties. Many of the buildings are historical and they are all beautiful. The campus is also home to the National Fallen Firefighter’s Memorial.
Some of my friends and I took a drive to Hershey PA and the Gettysburg National Battlefield on our one free weekend. Hershey was busy with the Antique Auto Club of America show, but we were able to tour the chocolate factory and take a bus tour around the town. I visited Gettysburg in 1982 when my father was on a tour of duty at the Pentagon. This visit was more rewarding after reading several books on the Civil War in recent years.

Thank you for sharing Roger! Wonderful pictures. And you are so right about Gettysburg, it’s a must see. I got to s pending a whole day there, and it still didn’t feel like enough time (and I still have two of the brass cannons I bought there).
You did great! Glad you were able to help, too.
Thanks Lorrie! Happy Thanksgiving!
Well written with beautiful photography. And I agree, Gettysburg is not only a must see, but is also sacred ground.
