A couple of photos from the Air Force Base

On two recent Friday afternoons, airmen/women lined up along the exits to the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and reminded people to "have a plan" for getting home if they were going to drink over the weekend.  

I've mentioned that every weekday mornings at 7 a.m., reveille is played, and at 5 p.m. we hear the national anthem.  The national anthem is introduced by something called "Retreat;" if you are outside when Retreat starts, you have to stop -- and that includes people in cars.  One day we were returning from a day of hiking when the music started.  While pulled off to the side of the road I took this photo of cars stopped near a base exit (the same exit shown in the photo above). In the rear view mirror you can see cars stopped behind us.
