Military Appreciation week on the Mall (pics) - May 11, 2007, 07:23 PM

This week is Public Service Appreciation week. They are having a big shindig down on the mall at 4th street. Lots of cool stuff out. You can climb on and in the tanks and trucks. they have drug sniffing dogs and they do the demo of them attacking people. And they were fallowing people around with those little bomb disposal robots, freaking people out. You can play tic-tac-toe with an underwater diver for some reason. And where else can your 5 year hold a bazooka? It's open to the public 9am-5pm through Sunday. Oh and you can get a bunch of free junk in the tents. I didn't have time to go into the Army tent but i heard it was cool. Anyone go in it? Check out the pics.

I'm suprised they put a "Little Bird" out for public consumption.

Once upon a time, we didn't talk about them in public.

Take your wildest 2 wheel ride ... multiply by 10 ... with rounds coming at you.

The pilots of those things are completely fearless, beady eyed killers. No joke.

Seriously ... (as you would want them to be).

I am shocked as well. Little birds are so bad-ass.

Well, the AH-6J made an appearance in Blackhawk Down so they aren't truely mystereious anymore. And I'm sure these were dumbed down versions anyway.

It looks like those static displays were really cool. Hopefully they'll keep doing this in the coming years. I'd like to visit it and see if I run into anyone I know.

Nice pictures.

Great pics, would love to go see this, but my Mom is in town and she's not really interested.

They ARE cool. I liked sliding down the rope with a chem light strapped to my pot with two other guys right above me, at night.
