Capture the American Flag

When: 2/25/16

QIC: Foghorn

PAX (): Boomer, DefCon 2, Hickory Stick, Nacho Libre, Crack, Swiper, Mufasa, Darth Visor, Wingman, MillerTime, Law Dog, Grits

13 PAX posted in cooler temperatures, with a brisk 13 mph wind coming through the AO, to honor a flag with 13 stripes. The number 13 has significance today!

At the risk of sounding like a complete nerd, YHC considers himself an amateur vexillologist (look it up). The history of sacrifice, courage, and good our American flag has inspired around the world can be overwhelming, regardless of your current political views and the politicians that do their best to undermine the original American dream. Nothing humbles your ego better than beginning your day with this remembrance of history.. What have I done or are doing that rivals what others have done in the name of this flag? So, the PAX began their day in awe of the star spangled banner, and found out exactly how many banners fly at the Rubicon.

Let’s mosey..

Darth Visor is back!!! And man did he keep up after quite some time off.. #Respect.. We are once again whole.

Thanks to NoSeeUm for letting me take his Q this fine morning.

Good showing and effort by all! Join us in front of Mugs tomorrow morn for a Friday run!

Praise for Darth’s knee recover, Boomer’s completion of the bar exam, and our brothers from Carolina. We only ask for God to continue to use this group of men to accomplish His goals!
