Plan, train, rehearse, protocol, execute, ceremony, awards, are all words that describe the military way. When my brother and I arrived to tour the 82nd Airborne Division War Memorial Museum, a company of the 82nd Airborne was there to plan and rehearse for a change of command ceremony scheduled a few hours later. We meandered among the troops as they set-up the podium and public address system for the retirement of a senior commanding officer. They practiced the ceremony plan with everyone in position. A young enlisted person stood at the podium and guided everyone through their role including the speaking part of introducing the honoree, VIP's, and special guests. After observing this activity, we toured the museum and continued to the Special Forces Museum for a tour there. Here are three pictures:

Have a good day!
