County Fermanagh, Botetourt County, and Vera

DO NOT ask me how to pronounce Fermanagh and Botetourt. Chances are they are as foul to the tongue as Cuyahoga is. Trust me.

Spoons, the 20th Maine, and Vera

Today, I will be coming home from one hell of an adventure.

A couple of friends of mine were very gracious enough to tag me along on a week long journey through American military history (something that even my 12th grade military history teacher, Mr. Walker, would have salivated over) over four states and one district. For me, the trip was an awesome look into what folks have sacrificed over the future of the nation, whether it would be truly united or become a textbook definition of a confederation. For my two friends, an Air Force vet and an Army vet, this adventure would be something completely different.
