Army Retirement Ceremony at The National Archives | Northern Virginia Photographer |VA Military Photographer
The National Archives is a beautiful location for a retirement or promotion ceremony for a military member. The Rotunda is filled with all of the nation's original documents. You can even see the hand print of one of the founding fathers on the documents. After taking in the awe and the majestic of The National Archives, an Army soldier held his retirement ceremony.
It was a beautiful October morning, the sun was shining and the member was excited to see the culmination of his military career come to a close.
The day started with a Meet and Greet of the family members and co-workers. It was an opportunity to tell stories and a quick look back of the member's career before having the official ceremony. Once we entered the Rotunda, everyone had the opportunity to look at the documents and the official retirement ceremony began.
There isn't a better way to finish the ceremony, except with a family portrait in front of The National Archives Museum.
