This will be a short day trippin report as I had to work for a lot of the day. The 72d Infantry Brigade Combat Team has been stateside for a little over a month, so all of the tearful welcome home celebrations have passed. The ceremony today is the military welcome home and is known as the uncasing of the colors ceremony. My report time was 12:15 in Houston and I got there a bit early (thanks super slab!) so decided to do a little photo op. I wanted an outside picture of the Mega-church that the ceremony would be held in, so I popped across HW-59 and found an empty parking space. Near this area is my favorite comic book shop the Third Planet Sci-Fi Superstore. This place is way older than the similarly named television show. It turns out Third Planet just painted the place and redid the driveway. I just couldnt resist the primary colors in the sunlight. I didnt buy anything, but found some stuff I would like to get later. Nearing report time I arrived at the church and took some interior pictures to give you guys a feel for why I called it a Mega-church. The fog seemed to be because of the Air Conditioning and cleared as soon as the temperature rose from opening the doors and letting all of the troops in. UFOs are real!! (not) Sorry I dont have any pictures of the ceremony, but being in the band means that I should follow protocol over picture taking fun. So I grabbed a public domain photo from the Battalion smug mug for you.
