Air Show

I was tasked with doing a set-up for the local air show. I work with another sergeant whose last name also starts with an "F" so my boss calls us "F-squared". So F-squared got two hummers, a tent, a table with lots of brochures and goodies. We also swung getting a .50 caliber to mount on top of the "real" hummer (minus the bolt). I took some shots of us and the boss (SFC Ranger) manning the tent. I also HAD to have some shots of me behind the .50 cal Ma Deuce! LOL.

This is the set-up and a pic of SFC Ranger (on the left) and half of "F-squared" on the right. The "Orange Crush" painted hummer is in the background.

There are no people visiting your set-up because they were all off camera visiting the Army and Army Reserve tent with its rock wall right?

Ha, ha, ha. Actually it was quite early when I took the pic. Later on we were SWAMPED! During the actual air show it was quiet, but once it was over people were literally crawling all over the vehicles.

You should see the reaction you get with an Abrams, Bradley, 3 HMMWVs, 2 Blackhawks, a Chinook, an obstacle course, a NASCAR simulator made out of a real NASCAR, AND a rock wall!

Needless to say the RA, AR, USMC, AF, and Navy weren't very happy with us that we brought all that crap to the air show. Our command paid a crap load of money to get that space though.

You should have seen the USMC. You had to do 20 pushups to get a crappy USMC logo sticker the size of a golfball and we were giving out t-shirts like they were going out of style. I don't think the Marine recruiter talked to me for 2 months after that.
