OFS JE REP inboundAnd so, as many times before... I sit in a room in Fayetteville post Sizzler. As always, a fantastic time. I'm always both honored and blessed to be included among such a group of people... I used a little different form this time... so enjoy!
Into the heat of a North Carolina summer
comes an event comparing to no other.
Many here know of what I speak,
Attendance is definitely not for the weak.
At the helm of this yearly rendezvous....
Mysterious Shadow, his bride, a Tree Hugger too.
A day at the range...a true southern feast...
All on the schedule on Sizzler eve.
Enlisted to aid in preparation,
Chief, Angry Artist, dark bird from far nation.
All come by planes, cars, SUVs....
Some trucks, and vans.... and One big ass RV (trailer).
Newcomers greeted and welcomed with gusto.
And coins harken push-ups, one endlessly must do.
Roaming around the AO this weekend
The ladies...the ladies so now let's meet them..
There's one around we'll call her "N",
Proud para-mama from start to the end.
Moving up to Ms. "K", all preppped and ready...
with antiseptic and bandaids for me.
Back down to "R", need I say more?
She makes the men drool handling weapons galore.
A couple more shout outs...for their bravery..
The first is "L" and next "A" better half to IED(magnet).
Now getting back to the Troopers who gather
Forgive me if I overly blather...
Roaming around with cameras in hand...
RO snaps shots from beginning to end.
Not forgetting video too..
A video camera he sometimes does use.
Har master mentor for future Rangers,
Master Blaster, Italy Jumper, so many new faces.
Jack and Dave filled up some other new places.
Grill-master P-Chop and the burgers he makes,
Something about Superman...and venison steaks.
Range Master Ferret, and of course, you 5-0
A few things to say here, "Ya, you betcha, don'cha know"
This Sizzler we learned how a helmet would look,
With .50 Cal blasts...courtesy of rcook.
OpsNCO always pops in...
Always great to see you for a few moments again.
And last but not least... Rocket1972
Never forget playing cops and robbers...
between Shadow and you.
I hope I got everyone...and noone was missed.
If I did, I'm sorry...please don't get pissed.
Another Sizzler in the books...these are my memories.
The one, and the only...
