There are few things more rewarding than improving the morale of our Troops, especially those on the front lines of the war on terror. We are honored to have supported a handful of 10th Mountain Division units in Afghanistan during OEF 11-12, including two battalions - the 1/32 and the 2/87. Now, Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon and its Special Friends, Partners and Benefactors have the opportunity to Welcome them home and Thank them for their service!
The X Bowl was a base-wide Madden 12 Football Xbox 360 video tournament. Prelims were held in the USO's entertainment center with as fanfare of t-shirts, prizes, Cheerleaders and excitement for the Soldiers and their families. The final match was an exciting thriller.
Microsoft Xbox donated Xbox 360 consoles and accessories, EA Sports donated Madden Football Xbox 360 games, TRX Fitness some Force Kits, Unilever Military Sales Dove and AXE products and even our Veterans Liaison, Tamber, got into the act and brought lots of NFL souvenirs and gave them away with our Project Manager Kim. It was an exciting evening!
The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Cheered for the combatants in the final game. They also put on a variety show for Division Soldiers and did meet and greets, taking pictures with the Soldiers and autographing picture cards during their stay and giving out a few WRC calendars over a two-day period. It was spectacular!
Special thanks to the Fort Drum MWR (Mr Hal has been amazing and Donna is great!), Fort Drum USO (thanks Rachel), Washington Redskins Cheerleaders (they are wonderful - special thanks to Stephanie and Signe!!), Microsoft Xbox, EA Sports, Unilever Military Sales, Atlas Air Worldwide, Bryan Cave Law, TRX Fitness, Ten Gun Design, Sunrise Identity and Leatherback - all for their terrific contributions to this great event!
Special Note: AaSP President Alan Krutchkoff attended River Fest on Thursday, June 21, 2012. River Fest is a prelude to the Mountain Fest-ivities. 10th Mountain Division Soldiers were treated to activities, river cruises and a picnic in the beautiful setting of Alexandria Bay, NY, just over the bay from Canada. It was a great event, thanks to the amazing work done by Fort Drum MWR and its partners. Great job Mr. Hal, Donna, Erin, Jan and teams!
