We cleared housing Thursday morning, and then headed to the Smith Lake Army Campground at Fort Bragg.
While staying there, we spent some time saying goodbye to some very dear friends. One evening we headed to the bowling alley at Pope Air Force Base.
This crew has grown a whole lot since we met so many years ago.
The next day, some other friends came out to the beach at the lake.
Some of these were taken by me, some by Miss Emma.
The next morning we loaded up and got on the road.
The first thing we did, was head to the unit and officially sign out on leave. Jeff coming out with his leave papers.
