2008 Combat Dining-In
More than 200 people turned out Friday night to take over an entire hangar for the Patrick Air Force Base/Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Combat Dining-In. The night was marked by camaraderie, water balloons, and a speech from retired Brig. Gen. Steve Ritchie, the only ace from the Vietnam War. “We want you... to go to the grog bowl.” That might be what Col. Stephen Butler, General Ritchie, Brig. Gen. Susan Helms and Command Chief Master Sgt. Dennis Vannorsdall, are saying. Must be time to report. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class David Dobrydney)
