Atlanta: Our fun-filled weekend!

While away at school I had the pleasure of visiting Atlanta with my love. We spent the weekend being tourists, which we rarely ever get to do. It was amazing way to spend my love's birthday. First we visited the infamous Magic City, where I fell in love with a dancer named "Passion". If you know where I can find her, that would be very helpful lol. We also visited the World of Coca Cola and the CNN building. Most of the attractions in downtown Atlanta are free to Active Duty military (so don't forget your ID, like I did) and most of all, have fun with it!

The College Football Hall of Fame was also an awesome experience. When you enter, you receive an "All Access Badge" that you register with your favorite college team. Throughout the exhibit, your badge is interactive with the displays. It really was a great experience.

We ended the trip with a visit to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There's also a Dr Martin Luther King Jr exhibit inside. It really was a heart wrenching exposure. Honestly, I couldn't complete the exhibit. The emotions were too strong. Here's what I could capture before we had to leave:

Meet the Army's newest Recruiter: ME!!

This past Friday was one of the proudest moments of my life: I graduated the US Army Recruiter Course (ARC). In the following months I'll be moving to Texarkana, Texas to start recruiting and I am very excited for this opportunity. I plan to make the best of this experience and take this opportunity to further my career. Here are a few pictures from my time in the ARC:

& saw some sites. Got to be a tourist, for once.
