At the Fort Benning Graduation ceremony at Fort Benning, Georgia on May 7, 2010, on a road trip that covered over 5,000 miles in 23 days and went almost from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. Five days out of Arizona was our first layover in Fort Benning, Georgia for the Turning Blue and graduation ceremonies of my cousin's grandson on the 6th and 7th of May, 2010.

"What is a Turning Blue ceremony?", you ask. Well, it's NOT what popped into my thoughts when I first heard the words "Turning Blue". All I knew about Fort Benning was that it's a fast paced Army training facility that turns our boys into tough fighting men. I could just imagine that the Turning Blue Ceremony would probably consist of the drill sergeant grabbing each man around the throat and squeezing until he turned blue. What else could it mean?

Here are a a dozen or so photographs that I managed to grab while attending this symbolic, meaningful, unforgettable, amazing, and joyful congratulatory Turning Blue celebration.
