Members of the Arlington County and Commonwealth of Virginia government, Secretary of the Army Pete Geren, Soldiers and families of the Military District of Washington and the Fort Myer Military Community gather for a group shot Aug. 7 just before signing the Army Community Covenant. The event took place during opening ceremonies at the popular, annual Arlington County Fair. The U.S. Army Band "Pershing's Own" and The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps started off the festivities with patriotic tunes. "This is very important for the entire community," said J. Walter Tejada, Arlington County Board Chairman, of the Covenant signing. "Arlington County only covers about 26 square miles, but it includes the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery and Fort Myer. Being so close together, we want to be close partners with the military community."
