Barbeque, sports, and pie-eating contests - sounds like a great time.
The 108th Air Refueling Wing held their annual Family Day after a Commander’s Call July 20. More than 1,400 wing members and their families, along with two busloads of veterans from the Vineland Veterans Memorial Home were treated to a home-style barbeque by Food Services, cooked by the Chief’s Council and served by the wing staff.
This year's entertainment included three performers from the Metropolitan New York USO, a State Police traffic safety cruiser with a driving simulator, a unit member car show, various carnival-type entertainment, go-cart and miniature golf, as well as horseshoe, volleyball and basketball tournaments, a dunk tank ran by the women’s softball team and a pie-eating contest.
In addition, one of the wing's KC- 135E Stratotankers was on static display which, according to Family Day organizer Master Sgt. Lou Kiesling, Survival Equipment Shop NCOIC, “Was a constant draw and speaks highly of the support by the families of the 108th’s mission.”
And the reason for the event’s success: “To be able to bring your family and have a good time is key to the whole operation.”
