Yesterday morning Louise and I took the self-guided walking tour of Fort Verde State Historic Park. In doing so, we were told of a special happening starting this morning…”History Of The Soldier 2007”. They were already setting up for the next morning by setting up tents and displays. Well this morning as we arrived, the parking lots and all the streets were covered with cars and the fort grounds, covered with people. As we walked past the gates we were met by soldiers playing brass instruments and wearing period clothing from the late 1800 or early 1900’s. Then to our right were some of the tents that were being set up yesterday. These were manned by soldiers from WWI to the Army of today. All were there to introduce us to who they were and are today, what they do or did, and answer any and all questions that we might have had about their job or position in the services.
