New York City!

New York City

Yes, its true. The Army (more specifically, my commander) allowed four soldiers to venture off into New York City.  Although a good portion of my family is from New York, I had only been there one time. Anyhow, SGT Taylor, SPC Fardette, SPC Anderson and Myself went to NYC. We decided to go in uniform. 

New Yorkers are very nice to uniformed service members! We were in utter amazement when people came up to us to thank us for what we do. It doesn't stop there. People came up to us and asked us if we could take pictures with them. The three broadcasters were all interviewed for the news. Rather Ironic. SGT Taylor's picture was in the middle of Time Square for a quit smoking ad. Ironic as well. Needless to say we came, we saw, and we conquered.

Same Group in the Hard Rock Cafe in Time Square. (I look short next to SGT Taylor!) 

We went to Battery Park and had a lot of fun playing with these tiles that made chiming noises when stepped on.
I think the video says it all!
