Raindrops to Rainbow 
by John Micklos Jr.

Raindrops are falling outside, but there's still a world of color to experience! Delightful rhymes and brilliant illustrations detail how a gloomy, rainy day might not actually be so gloomy after all when you get to spend time with mom, Brown Bear and the colors around you. And when a "beaming rainbow, bold and bright" cuts through the sky, everyone gets to experience the joy of all the colors that can only come after the rain.

Library: DoD Civilian Retiree Card

Are you a retired DoD civilian?  
For information on how to receive your DoD Civilian Retiree Card, visit Uniformed Serviced ID Card.

What is the purpose of the card?
Since many retired DoD civilians have no way of identifying their association with the Department of Defense, this card provides them with a trusted credential to establish their identity and affiliation. Some, but not all, military installations allow retired civilians access to MWR facilities with proper identification.
