Tonight I was fortunate to have taken a small part in a welcome home ceremony for Kevin Patrick Bradley. Kevin is a Corpsman who just returned home from deployment over seas in Iraq and Afghanistan. It made me extremely proud of the effort that the local community makes to support our troops. The San Ramon Valley is a very special place and a number of my neighbors, friends, local officials and veteran’s turned out to give Kevin a warm welcome home. Kevin was very appreciative, humble and professional in his response to the ceremony.
I streamed the event live on uStream, something I am planning to do more of. It creates a fairly low quality (at least from my Droid phone in 3G coverage) live video and audio feed from just about anywhere. I can’t help but think that there is room for a team-mate on these adventures. It would be much more effective to have one person recording and the other interviewing and socializing at an event like this. For now I will persist with my current testing, keep an eye out for the Facebook and Twitter updates from my uStream account. Here is the embed of the majority of the event on uStream:
