We’re just kidding, of course. Two high-ranking officers would never, ever bet anything more than a beer over a football game. Right?
Here’s Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, head of U.S. Army Europe, and Gen. Mark Welsh, head of U.S. Air Forces Europe, making a made-for-AFN Army-Air Force spirit spot ahead of this Saturday’s game. It’s kitschy and the fake, jovial battle over the football at the end is just painful to watch.
We at After Action hate to republish such a spot. We’d much rather see the ones made by cadets or the soldiers and airmen in the field. But unless we’re missing something on YouTube, this is the only spirit spot floating out there. Are we missing something? If so, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to put them on the blog.
