    Drum and Bugle Corps

    I ran across a video this morning from USAFA drum and Bugle Corps' trip yesterday. Travelling to Hawaii for the football game on a C-17 might not be 'first class seating', but what an experience. Stealth_81

    Promotion Gifts for O-3

    Does anyone have suggestion for a gift for promotion to O-3? I know it isn't a huge deal like the higher promotions are, but we would like to at least recognize our son for the accomplishment. We won't be seeing him at all so it would have to be something that we can ship. Stealth_81
