David Uhl and Larry Geller: MY FAVORITE Painting OF ELVIS [next to a Harley-Davidson in front of Graceland]
Elvis's stylist/spiritual adviser Larry Geller loves David Uhl's painting of Elvis next to a Harley-Davidson in front of Graceland.
As the Title suggests, this video was taken inside Elvis' Graceland. This is the Jungle room.
The sound to this video was from the audio guide we were given. It wasn't easy holding the earpiece of the audio guide to my digital camera's microphone, whilst trying to be inconspicuous.....

FBI Security Support for 56th Presidential Inauguration: Barack Obama EXCLUSIVE REPORT [Inside the FBI Washington Field Office Command Center]
Behind the Scenes
As Barack Obama took the oath of office to become the 44th President of the United States, the men and women in our Command and Tactical Operations Center paused briefly to witness the historic occasion on flat screens around the room—but only briefly. Then it was back to the business of communicating with agents in the field and our partners at other command posts around the city to continue to monitor the event and to assess any possible threats.
Millions of people arrived in Washington almost overnight for inaugural activities, but we started planning security with our law enforcement partners six months ago. Our 24/7 security coverage began January 17 and continued throughout the festivities.
The Secret Service is on point for protecting the President and takes the lead for inaugural security, but issues involving terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and crisis management are the FBI’s responsibility.
From the command center at our Washington Field Office, agents, analysts, administrators, and members of our Joint Terrorism Task Force fielded tips from the public and used sophisticated mapping and surveillance technology to track suspicious activity as well as to monitor our response teams on the ground near the Capitol and the inaugural parade route along Pennsylvania Avenue.
More than 150 plainclothes teams on foot and in vehicles were “our eyes and ears on the ground—our trip wires, if you will,” said John Perren, Special Agent in Charge of our Counterterrorism Division at our Washington office.
The teams were looking for anything suspicious—an abandoned backpack at a Metro station that could be a bomb, an unknown liquid in a plastic bottle that might be a weapon of mass destruction. If necessary, ground teams could also quickly respond to a crisis situation.
The command center—the hub of FBI communications activity—enabled teams in the field to share information in real time and allowed its staff to continually update the threat assessment. Manning the operation were some of the Bureau’s most “battle-tested” personnel, said Joseph Persimmon, Jr., who heads the Washington Field Office. “Many people in the room were here during 9/11 and responded to the Pentagon after the attacks,” he said. “Our team is phenomenal.”
But every major event is different, he added, and despite the fact that our extensive intelligence gathering revealed no credible threats prior to Inauguration Day, the command post responded immediately to multiple threats. Our intelligence assets from around the world were put into play to “run any threats to the ground,” Perren said.
Meanwhile, over at the Joint Information Center run by the U.S. Secret Service, more than 20 agencies handled all the media for security issues. "We got every call under the sun," said Richard Kola, who along with Jason Pack represented the FBI at the center.
Special Agents have many different responsibilities, including community outreach, investigation, and continuous training. For example, Agents spend large parts of their days outside of the office, "in the field," working on cases. However, Agents may also spend an entire day in the office completing paperwork related to investigations. These varied tasks usually mean that a day in the life of a Special Agent will differ from the one before!
Join us to learn what one particular day in the life of an Agent in Washington, D.C., may be . . .
Special Agent Sydney Becker (fictional name) explains a day in the life of an Agent . . .
|An Agent's day begins early. Today, I woke up to begin firearms training at 7:00 a.m. Assigned to the Washington Field Office, Agents may practice at an indoor range in FBI Headquarters, or at an outdoor range at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Training is an ongoing process for Special Agents in order to maintain their law enforcement skills. Today, while training outdoors, I joined other Agents to practice firing at moving targets and targets that were at close range. We need to be prepared for any situation that may develop during an arrest. After firearms training I cleaned my weapon -- all Agents are responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of their weapons.|

|While cleaning my weapon, I received a call over my radio, "suspect located, need assistance with arrest, meet at briefing location." Since I had already helped in the beginning of this investigation, a federal bank robbery case, I was familiar with the predetermined location. Meanwhile, other Agents were also contacted to meet at a location near the suspect's hideout -- close, but not close enough to alert the suspect. Here, we were briefed on the situation, looked at a map, and determined who would do what during the arrest.|

|Having determined that conditions were right for an arrest -- keeping in mind the safety of the public as well as the Agents -- Agents moved in to arrest the suspect of the bank robbery. Agents drove close to the scene and safely approached the trailer where the suspect had been hiding. I remained behind with other Agents to cover those Agents making the arrest. The suspect was taken into custody without incident.|

|The suspect was brought back to the Washington Field Office for processing. Processing usually includes fingerprinting and, if the suspect waives his rights to an attorney, questioning about the crime. The suspect was fingerprinted, questioned, and sent to a Federal Detention Center while Agents continued the investigation, which included interviewing witnesses and acquaintances, gathering evidence through the use of search warrants, and completing the necessary paperwork. After a busy day of training, investigating, and paperwork, I returned home to rest before another day in the life of an Agent.|
