A number of you have expressed interest in knowing who the Distinguished Visitors were who came for a few days.
I guess that since their presence here has been noted in the civilian press here and here, just to point out a few instances, it's OK for me to show you a photo of them, although I'm doing this completely unofficially, of course, and hope *this* post won't be considered a violation of OPSEC.
Our two-star visitor "coined" SSG L (my Rent-a-Chaplain-Assistant for the occasion), who can be seen holding that coin in this second photograph. It delighted me to see how excited SSG L was about all this!
I'm holding the license plate ("Now, you can't actually put this on your car, you know...") and State Flag given to me by the other visitor.
I love my job.
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
