Ghost Light

Veterans Concert

I was AD for the annual Veterans Concert tonight. It went fairly well. Working these gigs always makes me smile. I was in charge of the Joint Services Color Guard and the Presentation of Army and Air Force Units. The Army was almost all very young women this year. Everything was "Janet? You're Janet, right? Janet, can you hold my purse? Janet, can you make sure we're in the right order?" With the Air Force Boys it was all "Sir? Oh! I mean Ma'am.." And the Marines? "You're Janet, aren't you? I'm _____ and I here to make your life easier tonight."
