Today 16 PAX marched onto the fields of Hill City with the red glare of rockets lighting up the Chattanooga sky. Today was no normal day, it was a special one. Today we honored our country’s heroes and celebrated our freedom to be able to do what we do in the greatest country on Earth. We had record numbers and we are so proud to see our band of brothers in Chattanooga growing!

There was no one single Q today. On this special day, 4 brothers passed the Q torch around to complete what I think we can all agree ended up being the most memorable Post in F3 Chatt’s short history.

CONDITIONS: 75 Degrees F, Pouring Rain, and 300% Humidity

“Americans should never forget that the founders of this country, like all who have served her in uniform, were willing to die defending everything its flag represent. It’s so easy to get lost in the controversies that divide us. But I believe, no matter what our race, religion, or beliefs may be, that AMERICANS should be able to come together to keep our country rooted in what made it great”
