It's a grand old flag

Not long ago we had a rather famous visitor to our AO (Area of Operations), and as it turned out, before that event, preparations were made which included hanging a rather impressive US flag in the rotunda of one of the places where I celebrate Mass.

After Mass that evening, as SFC McG and I were leaving the building, we stopped in the rotunda and spoke with a couple of Soldiers who'd been at Mass. Upon seeing some other people having their photos taken in front of the flag, I asked one of those Soldiers (who shall remain nameless because of having a very recognizable last name) to snap a couple of photos of the 142d Chaplain Detachment before the flag.

You can get some idea of the grand scale of the room, and of the flag, by how tiny the two of us appear in perspective.Easter blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ
