Big News!

BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After eight years of waiting and working I've finally received a permanent appointment with the NPS.  I start on the National Mall in Washington DC on September 8.  This is very (very) good news.

Now the hope is to work my way back to Antietam!

Soon from high atop the Washington Monument,

Ranger Mannie

Congrats! (I work right up the street in the old Winder Bldg. Will have to stop by and say "hi"! I fully expect you to have all the Civil War angles covered, like the cow grazing operation down there.)

From the Texas Hill Country, congratulations Mannie on a well earned career step. You are so good at what you do... photos, story (history) telling, maps, interacting with the public, etc., etc., NPS has to recognize the benefits to be reaped from continuing to use you to our (the public's) advantage.Hope to see you back at Antietam soon.
