We drove on out to the Cape Henry Lighthouse on the Atlantic shore in Virginia (actually, there are two lighthouses out there, the old original one and the new one; we were there to see the old one). I knew that there was a chance of seeing some heraldry – in addition to my belief that you can find heraldry everywhere, the lighthouse is, after all, on a military base – but I also knew that the chances of getting any good photographs of it were slim (the lighthouse is, after all, on a military base, and they’re awfully wary lately of people taking pictures willy-nilly).
However, I did get one. On the leading edge of the hood of a pickup truck (one of the larger Toyotas) in the parking lot for the old lighthouse was a sticker/decal with the arms of the U.S. Air Force Communications Command.
