This bucolic setting is just 45 minutes outside Washington, D.C. in Frederick County, Maryland. We met up with some old friends for an afternoon of pumpkin picking, complete with corn maze. Sophie and Dominic (their youngest) get along famously even though it's been 7 years since they were playmates as preschoolers. The last month I have seen Barb (who I haven't seen in 7 years), Deb (who I haven't seen in 4 years) and Sonal (who I haven't seen in 3 years). If you stay in the military long enough, eventually you will cross paths with old and dear friends again. It takes the sting out of starting over every 2-3 years.
