Greetings from Ramstein Air Base Germany
Friday night, we hosted the seasoner opener for the NCAA between UCONN and Michigan State. The game aired live on ESPN and ESPN2. It took us 5 months to plan but the event was a success. I definitely had a lot of fun and all the interviews and coverage turned out well. Everyone learned a little about what we do at Ramstein Air Base. The pic is about an hour before Sports Center was going to air live. I’m grateful for these different experiences. I’m completely exhausted afterwards but excited as its going on. Learned a lot about production behind the scenes and programming.
My Major is now deployed so I’ve taken over. I now am the Chief of Public Affairs for the largest wing in the entire Air Force. It’s certainly a challenge but doing well. Hope all is well in Pirate country!
