Take about 40 troops awaiting medical evaluation in Germany, a bunch of steaks, hamburgers, and ribs, lots of side dishes, and 3 shopping carts full of ice for the liquid refreshments.
Mix well and you've got the perfect cure for a boring Sunday afternoon in medical hold. Carried out purely for medicinal purposes, of course.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
(Yes, I realize some of these photos are just plain wrong. But it was all funnier than heck at the time...)
Thanks to Soldiers' Angel Judy who sponsored the picnic, soldiers Chris and Craig who had the same idea and with whom we joined forces, Angel DrueAnna with daughters Samantha and Sabrina who helped with the shopping, and Chaplain Woodson for stopping by.
And special thanks to First Sergeant for organizing the cleanup detail which extended the bed check deadline to 2400 ;-)
