That's right!! Upon entering Fort Bragg, North Carolina to see an Air Show
[ http://www.pbase.com/fromtheheart/aviation07 ] open to the public and
photography I had to have my car "processed" (a.k.a. inspected for weapons
and explosives). They insisted that I open EVERY compartment -- the door, t
runk, hood, glove box, etc. so they could "process" my car for entry to the base.
I thought this would make a great photo. The gate guard thought otherwise.
After taking a few photos, I was almost arrested AND I was asked to show all photos
that I took of my car. Since one photo showed a TINY corner of their
Guard House, I was asked to delete it with the promise that I never again
point a camera in his direction. He had a gun so I promised.
Well, in honor of the civilian Gate Guard who gets no respect (and never gets
to use his gun), I post this deleted photo of the doorstep to his guard house.
Look closely and you can even see my car with all the doors open. . .
