Sunday May 16, 2010 -- AHEC

After a great night's rest, we were "up and at 'em" for another great day of learning and fun. Of course, it started off with a good breakfast of homemade waffles. Yummy.

After breakfast I went with the Beeghley family to the Army Heritage Education Center (AHEC) for Army Heritage Days. This annual event allows visitors to see exhibits about soldiers from colonial times to today. I got to visit a World War I trench, Vietnam War bunkers, visit with Civil War soldiers and see lots of items related to our military history.

Here I am resting on a cot in a tent that was similar to the ones used by nurses during the Vietnam War.

This is my cousin Patriot Pete learning about World War I foxholes with a soldier.

These gentlemen are portraying soldiers from the 101st Airborne.

Here I am with a British Grenadier.

And the day wasn't over yet!! Stay tuned for my next stop...
