James told us today that he wore his brand new "blues" to a "dining in" last night.
A "dining in" is a military term for wearing your fancy dress "blues" uniform to a social function. James also had an opportunity to speak to the full bird colonel and found out that the colonel has a friend who is going to be in command of the unit James is going to---and that this unit is presently deployed to Iraq, due back in April.
Let's review our new Army military terms: blues, dining in, and full bird colonel.
Blues fancy military uniform is the one Bob married me in. And it is not to be confused with "Blues Clues" the popular show our grandchild likes.
