Fort Rucker – In an effort to raise awareness and recognize Black History Month, Fort Rucker will continue its winning tradition of amazing ideas by hosting a garrison wide game of “hide and seek.”
“I like to pride myself as an outside of the box thinker” stated COL Tammy Baugh, the 1st Aviation Brigade Commander. “I was reading an article about the Underground Railroad one night, and I thought to myself how it was almost like a big game of hide and seek. When I called up Major General Francis and pitched him my idea, he was all too eager to get on board and turn it into a function for all of Fort Rucker. After our success with gingerbread houses and escape rooms to promote our SHARP program, which was not in any way an oversight that marginalizes the seriousness of the subject with houses made of candy or conflates the idea of an inescapable room with those suffering from the trauma their attackers inflicted on them, we really think this will be a rousing success.” ****
The recent events mentioned have been ridiculed on social media and in military news media due to a perceived lack of awareness when it comes to public perception. We look forward seeing how this event goes and to more great ideas from 1st Aviation Brigade and Fort Rucker.
(**** not a real conversation, but you can imagine it’d probably go like this if it was.)
