Because “Wingman Day.”
We gather people together … in uniform … during duty hours … when we say we’re undermanned … while we’re begging Congress for more money … and this is how we spend our time. Or at least it’s how Travis Air Force Base does so.
Looks like fun. Great idea for airmen to do on their own when the work is done … or maybe as a spontaneous show of camaraderie when we close the doors early on Friday to socialize and team-build. Or maybe at a day care facility.
But as part of Big Blue Flaming Wingman Day … it just looks like more wasteful clownery while the mission wilts on the vine.
