A positive and a negative observation;

Pos (+) Cool to see older dudes (Master Sergeants, First Sergeants, Sergeants Major, even a LTC) competing. Guys in their mid to late thirties or early forties serving in a combat arms profession were traditionally hobbled with bad knees, backs, early onset of arthritis, etc. I suppose we're smarter now about some things.

Neg (-) The number of lieutenants competing suggests that being a Rifle Platoon Leader isn't a priority to them or their command. I get it-- many are on staff or something. But I do not think it sends the best message to see so many Os (low density population) competing in an event that took several months of preparation and time away from their primary roles.

Damn, same birth control parachute glasses we wore in the early nineties are still the standard?

Nothing like getting a weekend off and hitting the town in those bad boys, lady killers!

Supposedly Captains Rose and Bergman are repeat offenders, having placed first in the past. Rumor has it this is the third 1st place finish for one of them.

Amazing.
