Hanging out at the Legion posts
My brother is a Vietnam vet, and he's active in his American Legion post back in western New York.
So on his trip to New Mexico, we visited several Legion Posts. Jake had Legion license plates from his post in NY, and there is a tradition of trading plates with other posts around the country. He was able to visit posts in Santa Fe and Los Alamos, and exchange plates with them.
The fun part was the nice people we met in the Legions in both places. Local people were interested in striking up conversations with us, and were instantly friendly to us as strangers. We had some great conversations with some good people.
Here is Jake outside the Montoya y Montoya Post in Santa Fe:
