OK, folks, Red Dawn II is history. It went well and we will have some "lessons learned" for next year.
Moving to September lost some attendance, but certainly gained a little cooler weather along with less
ticks and chiggers!
Both the Harris
County SO Deputies and USAF Security Forces Troops performed outstanding!
mention the support staff that devoted their time and efforts iwthout complaint! Truly, you couldn't have
asked for a better group.
The old saying
"If it ain't raining, you ain't training!" prevailed.
Showers on and off, with a heavy rain
on Saturday not only cooled things down but added to the realism of the tropical jungle scenario. However,
it did serve to kill the idea of a campfire until Sunday morning and forced a "call-off" of the live band for
Saturday night. Also, the masks were so fogged with humidity that some of the battles were "close quarters".
I do have a solution for next year so read down in the "Red Dawn III' section.
Thanks to our
Public Affairs Photographer Teri May for taking so many shots
(literally, she was hit at
least once that I know of during the battle). Guess that's what "Combat Camera" is all about.
I've grouped the pictures below and added a little text.
Other than that,
I hope you had fun! Keep an eye on this web site for Red Dawn III
details! See you
