I donated the photo to the guard last year. My guard friend, Mary, said that photos from Camp Ripley usually get selected. This cover is a little bit more special because I made the photo at the Arden Hills Army Training Site.
It's a chimney swift house. From allaboutbirds.org
A "flying cigar," the Chimney Swift is rarely seen perched. Its high-pitched twittering is a familiar sound during summertime in the city as it flies high above, catching small flying insects.
