An Airman runs on the track, Dec. 18, 2018, with the Smoky Mountains in the distance at the Air National Guard’s training and education center on McGhee Tyson Air Guard Base in East Tennessee. The track’s artificial turf was among the many updates, events, and achievements in 2018. (U.S. Air National Guard photo/Master Sgt. Mike R. Smith)
Hello. I am a prior U.S. Navy sailor and photojournalist serving on active duty with the National Guard – combined, for more than 22 years. This blog features my more memorable stories and photos from that news pile as well as creative writing. All images and stories are by me unless otherwise credited. I hope to backlog more as well as write new stories. Thank you so much.
