The Fourth of July was particularly special this year for a few of the TSAC members!
We had been invited to join the friends & families of our adopted unit for a
BBQ/Picnic at Sterne Park in Littleton, sponsored by the VFW in Littleton. (We had been invited to other gathering s, but this one was the first one we could attend.)
Cos, Crowfeather & I were chauferred by Mr Crowfeather, and we went to meet up with our new friends.

It was a great time and very nice to see our contacts down there playing volleyball & running around with the kids! (What a nice bunch of folks!)
And they were good cooks too!

'Feather took some pictures, but is having a, uh, challenging time getting them posted. But stayed tuned to this thread for fun show & tell, and the correct name of the host group!

It was a wonderful way for a few civilians to celebrate the Freedom of the Fourth!

What fun for you all! I think having the marine unit we've adopted being mostly Colorado men and women is such an advantage as we can meet and get to know their families and supporters here at home.

I"ll be watching for crowfeather's pictures.

Following are photos from the 4th of July picnic attended by some TSAC members. We were guests of the Marines of Alpha Battery, 1st Battalion, 14th Marines, 4th Marine Division, our newest adopted unit. These folks are locals, being home-based at Buckley AFB, Aurora, among them Conifer resident Billy Walls.

Alpha Battery also enjoys the support of the Littleton American Legion Post, which hosted the picnic at Sterne Park in Littleton.

The opportunity to interact personally with some of "our people" was outstanding. It's always inspiring and motivating to have contact with these folks.

You guys did good, Great to see that TSAC is involved with the families of those deployed. I am sure they appreciate the support. I cannot imagine their concern for the deployed.

What can I do to help?

Thanks crowfeather, you did a great job with the photographs. I'm like Bubbles, I cannot image the heartache, fear, and longings each of those people must feel for their loved ones so, so far away. That was really nice of the VFW to sponsor the picnic.

Ummm, did cos remain away from the food table or did he sample, just a little bit?

cos? Sample "just a little bit"? :eat: Yeah, just a little bit. A little bit of burger, and a little bit of baked beans, and a little bit of chocolate cake, and....just doing his part to make the Legionnaires glad they invited us!

:hugegrin: luv ya, cos ;)

A minor confusion has crept in here. It was the American Legion, not the VFW, which generously hosted this celebration of freedom and liberty, honoring those who make the sacrifices of home, family and comfort, and, too often, more, on our behalf.
