Fellow ProRangers and friends,
Morgan and I arrived at Antietam National Battlefield Sunday evening and began to move into our residence for the summer. We are staying at the Fulk House, which is located approximately ten minutes from the Ranger Station near the Pry House field hospital. After arriving at our living quarters, we began to settle in and were given move-in instructions by Ranger Linc Beers. Following our move-in procedures we prepared our uniforms for Monday morning and looked forward to the week ahead!
Early Monday morning we reported to the Ranger Station for our first tour of duty. We began the morning with our supervisor Tom Jones. At the Ranger Station, Ranger Jones introduced us to the Law Enforcement staff as well as the Natural Resources staff that works in the building. Next, we conducted a morning patrol of the park and drove to park headquarters to meet the staff members. Once at headquarters we were introduced to Park Superintendent Susan Trail and Chief Ranger Ed Wenschhof. While at the park office we also spoke to the budget analyst and the administrative assistant.
