501st TROOP: UNITED AIRLINES FLEET WEEK EMPLOYEE EVENT – OCTOBER 7, 2012

Every year, United Airlines throws an employee event which the 501st is invited to attend to.  Food, games and exhibitions fill the United Airlines maintenance facilities lot of the San Francisco Airport.

We were invited to lead the parade to start off the festivities.  After the parade, we were taking photographs with the families and kids that were awed by our presence.  In the mid afternoon, the F22 Raptors were performing for the Fleet Week festivities.  In between flights, they invited us to have a photo op with the F22 Raptor Fighter Jets.  It was an awesome troop and a great day with the garrison.  It was probably the biggest troop I’ve done in 2012 and hopefully will be able to do this again in 2013.  It is too bad that current budget cuts will not allow the Blue Angels to perform this year.  We’ll see this fall.

Great pic of me in the hanger suiting up in armor. Thanks to BUI Photography for this shot.
