Graduation at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas

We spent a few days at the campground at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio before heading out.  Every morning we walked and on Friday, people were starting to fill the stands on the parade field.  When we asked what was going on, we were told there was going to be a graduation ceremony for recruit training.  We had time to get home, shower, and make it to the ceremony.  Although we did not know anyone, it was impressive!   We also took a side trip to Boerne where we met David with Jeff, the Clydesdale that is having hoof problems (he is much improved!).  Ambrose, the ferrier who shoes him, happened to be there.  He stayed on the property in Corpus Christi when he was in town.
