GI Jon

No, he didn't re-enlist. Picture was taken at the Military Museum, Camp Ripley, Little Falls, MN. Outside there is a display of helicopters, tanks, ambulances, trucks and artillery used over the past 60+ years.
There are still banners welcoming home the large contingent of MN National Guards who were deployed recently from a two year assignment in Iraq.
I grew up in Little Falls and visited the base a few times as a kid because our neighbor worked there. It was used for two week summer training for several midwestern Natl. Guard groups. Now I believe it is also used for winter training.
We drove up to Camp Ripley to see the Veterans Cemetery adjacent to it.
