Here is Blackham getting ready for the Thanksgiving Day 5k Turkey Trot.
Here we are gathered up for a safety brief.
I spy an Indian Bradley D!
Here are the guys giving us a safety brief.
They basically said "Be careful running and don't get lost". So it was useless.
Here we are listening to it with enthusiasm
Here is the 1-211th guys.
Here is the medical section about to run the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot
Two of our little people ran! LOL
Blue and Wallace
Here is some of our running group before the race.
From left to right:
Bray, Young, Blackham, Deena, Holman, turkey guy, Blue, Me, Doc
Look there is a cowboy in the background.
Deena decided that we should run as a group.
And as a group we had music with portable speakers, Costumes, and this awesome banner.
And we are off running.
Here is Blackham. (Lt. Dangle from Reno 911)
Running by the Port-o-Johns
As we ran the letter from the banner kept falling off.
Obviously Vandremolin (far left) wasn't ready for this pic.
And now he is ready.
This Blackhawk flew about 15' above our heads and dusted us out. We had to hold on to our hats, and we lost about 4 more letters.
Here is our sign oat the end "PPHKGNG"!
They wanted to "GAG" after 3.1 miles.
Doc took first place in the run. Or should I say he was the first military guy! A ultra marathoner civilian guy beat him by 2 seconds. Here he is getting award.
Now its dinner time, and the higher ups are working with the Afghans to serve us.
Some of my fellow Joes posing for a picture.
Here is my table :)
Here is my Thanksgiving Day Feast! I wanted to barf afterward!
And yes that is eggnog in the Styrofoam cup
Thanksgiving dinner was an awesome experience. It felt like we could just relax for once.
