78 was the theme today set from the git-go with 78 SSH, IC.
78 honors Alejandro Villanueva who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers and is an Army Veteran and Airborne Ranger. He was the only Steeler who appeared on the field for the National Anthem after the Steelers announced that, as a team, they would remain in the locker room until after the Anthem was finished. At Soldier Field, of all places! The stadium was named Soldier Field on Veteran’s Day, 1925 to honor Soldiers killed in combat.
Duty, Honor, Country. Way to go, Alejandro!
Welcome Downhill! 8-Penny is fast, but even his days are numbered. Downhill will soon beat down the ‘ole man. He has pep to his step and a youthfulness for miles to burn!
Great work by all.
Funny story about extra credit. Epo texted foxtrot to pick up the flags on the way because he was leaving early to run to SE. Problem was, foxtrot was rucking to the AO so he left before Epo. No flags, but good thing there is one always flying at Veterans Park!
BROlympics. 7 October. Foxtrot will sponsor up to 5 participants as he won’t be in the AO for the event. I’m sending a check today – no excuse to come out if you are in the area.
F2 upcoming tomorrow, 9/26 @ 6:30pm @ Saint’s Cove Beach Bar & Grill just south of Carolina Beach (1006 Lake Park Blvd) by Vinny’s Pizzeria. Family owned supporting Veterans and 1st responders. Owned by a Marine.
All Pax then took a knee…to pray.
Prayers for Flamer and Charley-Stop who both add to their families. Flamer’s wife has had some contractions/labor signs the past 48-hours. We pray for smooth deliveries/procedures and healthy babies.
Prayers for the country as we spent the weekend with a new level of dividedness. For all to find a way to open up better dialogue…as someone said, “people don’t even know why they are even mad anymore.”
Strong Work!!! Honor to be the Q. Thank you!
HAAD! | RLTW! | Foxtrot out.
