I went to the Malmstrom Air Force Base Open House on Saturday May 17, 2008. Saw a lot of cool stuff. Took a LOT of shots and ended up with almost 200 usable shots. Don't know that I'll ever post them all here on dA, but it gives me a nice backlog of shots for dry times.
This is the Malmstrom Air Force Base Honor Guard Precision Drill Team. They put on one heck of a show. There was only one drop, and he recovered quickly and paid the penalty of spinning and throwing his rifle around for about a minute to make up for his goof. These guys are good, and they put in the time to drill and perfect this performance only when off duty. Pride and honor drive them.
Happy Memorial Day to everyone in the US. Let's salute those men and women who have served our country for over 200 years.
