Co. A 1/46th Inf.

These are my best photos of Alpha Company at the Leader's Training Course in Fort Knox, Ky. I feel like I did a pretty good job of covering everything, but there are several things I wish I'd done better. I wish I had gotten to know my Cadets better, spend more time with 1st and 2nd platoons and shot a few things differently. The busiest part of my internship is over and now I'm just covering things for the paper. I'm having a blast and really enjoying this job. I hope everyone's internships and/or summers are going well! (Sorry there are so many photos.)

Long time no see

I swear I'm still alive and taking photos. I will update in the next few days with the best photos of my company. Sorry for such a long delay. For now though, here two photos that mean a lot to me.

My grandma died last Wednesday after fighting Ovarian Cancer for five years. She lived with us in Lexington and was always right up the street in Ashland (where we lived first). The first photo is after my high school graduation. My grandma said she wanted to stay alive to see me graduate high school, something she didn't do, and start college. The second photo was taken just over a month ago after Mother's Day. We got her a new swing so she could sit outside. I assembled it and we layed there for a long time. I don't really know what else to say other than I will miss her more than I can say with words.
