Last week I was TDY for the start of a leadership development course. I don't have too many pictures of the actual course, because who really wants to see pictures of generals and colonels giving briefings. But trust me the schedule was jam packed. We rushed everywhere. Some of the pictures I took were just so that I could look at them later and see where I was that day. It was a great experience, I learned a ton, saw some great things, ate a lot of Hawaiian beef, and met some wonderful people.

Sorry, no pictures of Elizabeth in this post. She was with Grandma. And it might be a while before we get some good ones to post, my camera broke on the trip. :(

C-17 Ride out of Atlanta

Diamond Head, which we hiked up on the last day for PT
Someone walking in front of me got a glimpse of this. All I had time to was snap a few photos and keep on walking.
All the pictures below we taken with the iPhone, the real camera broke the first morning there. I was grumpy about it but there wasn't much I could do.

The USS Missouri from the boat to the USS Arizona
USS Arizona Memorial

The is the spot on the USS Missouri where Japan surrendered. I took a picture because I did not have time to stop and look at it while I was there. But if you ever go, ask for Doc to be your tour guide, he was great!

The flag that few over Hickam on 7 December 1941
I have conquered Diamond Head
(It wasn't hard)

We had some free time on the last day so we went snorkeling in this bay for about an hour.


  1. I am massively jealous of all these pictures.

    Also... iPhone to the rescue!! Huzzah!

  2. I hate that the iPhone saved me. I have to admit, it's growing me.
