Photo Exhibit Nov. 13-14

I am hanging 66 prints from Iraq and Afghanistan at the Princeton (Mass.) Arts Society at the end of this week. Reception 7 to 9 p.m. Friday Nov. 13, exhibit 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday Nov. 14. It would be great to see any old friends who are close enough to drop by either day. Doc Griego left a comment on the post just below this one, wondering if I remember him. The answer is yes, clearly, vividly and often. Indeed there are several photos of him in the exhibit: with Scout Platoon in a pre-mission briefing, on a house raid, and upon his return at Fort Hood. Doc and anyone else from 1-8 Cav or 3-3 Marines should feel welcome to drop by. Skyler Koch is coming for sure, making the drive with his lady from college in Vermont. I last saw Koch at Lt. (now Capt.) Derek Ping's wedding at West Point. The exhibit also has several photos of Skyler: pointing to the gouge left on his HUMVEE by an RPG, and watching Derek Ping dance with his bride. Capt. (now Maj.) Rex Blair - D Co. commander - may drive over from West Point with his two oldest sons, Rex and Connor. He's in at least one pic, with Lt. (now Capt.-retired) Matthew Cohen and several of the Scout Platoon troopers, all in full battle rattle.
