It's time once again to figure out where in the world are the Murphy's and the Monje's carrying our legacy AGCRA logo to exotic locations around the globe. Scroll down to get started...

Here are COL (Ret) Bob and Gayl Murphy in Giza, Egypt, at their hotel, the Marriott Mena House, with the Giza pyramids in the background.

In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, COL (Ret) Nick and LTC (Ret) Dianne Monje took the cable cars up to see Christ the Redeemer Statue and again to see all of Rio from Sugar Loaf Mountain which is shown in the background.

In Puerto Madryn, Argentina, Nick and Dianne visited a Penguin Rookery and caught a pic with the Argentinian flag on a windy Atlantic beach.

Staying in Argentina, Nick and Dianne took the Ushuaia Beagle Channel Wildlife Cruise through Cape Horn to “The End of the World” with colonies of Sea Lions, the lighthouse “Les Eclaireurs” and a majestic mountain range as a backdrop, which was breathtaking.

For Nick and Dianne the British Falkland Island Battle Fields and Memorials was quite the terrain walk.  Their guide took them through the 74 Day War (2 April – 14 June 1982) in which a total of 649 Argentine military, 255 British military, and three Falkland civilians were killed during the war.  The Falkland Islands remain a British territory.

And finally, in Santiago, Chile, Nick and Dianne attended Church services at the central cathedral and were also delighted to see Santiago's Changing of the Guard Ceremony at La Moneda Palace, which was spectacular!
