Speed boats, loud sirens and flashing lights were the scene in Hillsborough Bay when eight agencies exercised on the water Wednesday. With eight boats, the 6th Security Forces Squadron, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Tampa Police Department, U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Federal Protection Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission took part in the water exercises that included a VIP evacuation, an air lift water evacuation and protecting a water convoy.
MacDill’s 2005 Rodeo Team was sent off in style June 17 during a ‘farewell breakfast’ at the Officers Club. Members of the wing came out to wish the team luck during the competition.
"Rodeo not only recognizes the best of the best, but allows our Airmen as well as many of our international partners to learn and share new and better techniques in responding to international crises," said Maj. Gen. Chris Kelly, Rodeo commander.
Make sure to stop by one of the clubs today at 4 p.m. to watch a live feed of the closing ceremonies from McChord Air Force Base, Wash. The ceremony will be shown at both the Officers and Enlisted clubs.
Make sure to also stop by Hangar 3 at 2 p.m. Saturday for a ‘Welcome Back BBQ.’ The team is scheduled to arrive around 3 p.m. Wing personnel and their families are invited to come out and enjoy this event.
Terry Bowden live
Former Auburn University head football coach Terry Bowden (far right) broadcasted the Terry Bowden Show live from Boomer’s Sports Bar and Grille at the Surf’s Edge Enlisted Club June 17. The sports call-in show served as a “salute to the troops.” During the broadcast, he took calls from listeners, played sports trivia games and answered questions of those in attendance. The crowd also enjoyed prizes and free give-aways, which included Match Up game pieces.
