Where in the World are the Monje’s?

AGCRA has a goal of touching all corners of the Army, from South Korea, Alaska, Hawaii, the Continental U.S., Europe, to the Middle East.  But why stop there, let’s take AGCRA global! 

And so they’re back as we once again have asked COL (Ret) Nick Monje and his wife LTC (Ret) Dianne Monje to carry the AGCRA logo to as many exotic places as possible… so where in the world are they?  Scroll down…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nick and Dianne recently attended a wonderful family wedding and reunion in Arkansas.  Their photo was taken at Sunset Point atop Mount Nebo National Park, Arkansas.

Mount Nebo National Park is situated in the Arkansas River Valley just 45 minutes from Arkansas Wine Country.  This state park sits atop the 1,350-foot Mount Nebo.  Within the park, the 1930s-era Civilian Conservation Corps constructed many of the rustic-style cabins, pavilions, bridges, and 14 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.  Cabin 1 was the first cabin rental in Arkansas state park history.  Twelve of the park’s 15 cabins are located along the bluff and have views of the river valley below.  Most of the campsites do as well.  There are 34 campsites (24 Class B and 10 hike-in tent sites).  Other facilities include a swimming pool (fee required), tennis courts, picnic areas, pavilions, and a visitor center with a gift shop.

Mount Nebo State Park is also a certified Trail of Tears National Historic Trail Site.  Mount Nebo, overlooking the Arkansas River from the south, witnessed the removal of all five of the Indian tribes that were removed along the water route of the Trail of Tears.  Mount Nebo offers panoramic views of the Arkansas River from the Rim Trail.  Learn more about the Trail of Tears in Arkansas state parks.

Nick and Dianne are also planning another overseas trip in the Summer of 2022.  So where will their ‘Bucket List’ take them next?

OK, so now it’s your turn… take a photo of yourself with the AGCRA logo below at a unique location, be it CONUS or OCONUS, and send it to Newsletter@agcra.com and we’ll share it with our members.
