March Photo Challenge – Before & After.

Calvin and Abe

When Calvin served in the army he was stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado.  Abe's first post assignment was also Fort Carson, Colorado.  The other day when we went shooting Calvin and Abe pulled out their ear plugs, both issued from Fort Carson.  I couldn't believe Calvin still had his; he got them in 1973.  Abe's are from 2011.

That is a cool picture and a cool thought.

HOLY COW! That is just an amazing story and picture. So glad dad knew where to find those in the shop... I'm ABSOLUTELY amazed he did. I loved that.

what a fun story. but those don't look comfortable at all! maybe uncomfortable earplugs for shooting are to men like uncomfortable heels for beauty are to women?

Wow! How interesting for them to have been stationed at the same place.
