                                          AROUND POST 24




The ‘AROUND POST 24’ page features bits and pieces of daily life in and around POST 24.  Although some of the pictures and captions make light of a particular situation, these men and women who comprise the ‘USUAL SUSPECTS’ all know that the very existence of POST 24 depends on their tireless effort.  It all doesn't just happen when the lights are on.


POST 24 deeply appreciates all those who spend their time and effort in making it the BEST, you know, the USUAL SUSPECTS.  Can we count on you?



Walking Dog      He says, ROOF, ROOF, ROOF..!!!

And I say, 'Boy, I say, boy, what are you trying to say'...??

Silly mutt, what he means is that POST 24 has a brand new ROOF.   He also is saying THANK YOU to each and everyone who thought enough of POST 24 to help with the expenses. 

Come on in...!!!  We're open again...!!!  Yes, POST 24 has a new roof and it is beautiful...!!!  Stop by and take a look, come on inside and feel how COOOOOOOOOOOL is feels as all of the air conditioners have been repaired, or replaced, as needed. 

The weather has been very cooperative in allowing all the maintenance people to do what they do best.

Seems like things are always hoppin’ at POST 24 with something going on just about every day and most every evening.  The ‘FOXHOLE lounge’ usually is abuzz with a few, to a large crowd, catching up on all that is going on while enjoying their choice of beverage.

However, there is a little known area on the grounds of POST 24 that many may have not discovered.  A quiet little retreat where one can be alone with one’s thoughts.  A place where one can hear the birds sing while reflecting on days of long ago, of names who became friends along the way.


Over among the trees one can simply walk, or sit, and allow all the memories to come to the forefront.  The solitude becomes apparent with a sigh, where time is of no importance, where thoughts abound as names, faces and places enter.

Try it someday when you want to relax for a few minutes.      

Hey.....!!!   Have you been out back recently...!!!

Clapping HandsThank You
