A few Military personnel at NAF (Naval Air Facility) thought members of the 501st might add a different twist to the opener of the BLUE ANGELS air show season. They were right. Four HK's, another Sandie and two pristine (ultra clean) Troopers arrived to provide a unique layer of "security" at the air show. The event simply ROCKED. We walked the flight line before suiting up, used an Ordnance Room to become Plastic Patriots, and hit the flight line with our Big Guns.

The routine: Walk 20 feet, stop in front of a jet, and pose with 30 guests of the air show. Walk another 20-40 feet, encounter a new set of guests, stop for pictures... Listen to a fighter jet roar overhead, the pictures kept rolling. Awesome.

Although historical temp readings indicate the temperature was 90 degrees Fahrenheit, it seemed to be right around 100. All day... In ARMOR, no SHADE. T'was a GREAT day!

*VERY* special thanks to Lesley, our Garrison Skipper and coordinator for this event. All but the last four photos in this gallery were taken by and belong to Lesley. Nikon D80. Great pics, Lesley!!
