Crater 150

It’s been a long day. I will share some thoughts at another time. For now I will leave you with this photograph of the 22nd USCT’s regimental flag. The reenacting unit took part in today’s ceremony at the Crater.

    Day-yamn, Kevin. I’ve seen small black and white images of that design, but not it fully recreated before.

    Not subtle, is it?

    Nope, not subtle at all…

    We are Men of War, after all…

    Nice stuff, Kevin.

    Best,

      That caused coffee to shoot out my nose. I need to stop reading these CW blogs first thing in the morning.
