Here Is The Story
A few days ago, my son-in-law, Luke, CW3 promotable, a US Army Apache Pilot and a few of his peers flew to Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte to recon the speedway for a US Army Fly Over for the Coca-Cola 600 during the Memorial Day Weekend.
To their surprise, upon arrival they were greeted with a hero's welcome, they each got to take a few laps around the track in a retired race car and they were served the lunch of a lifetime...he had creme brulee for dessert! Luke's race car driver found it hard to believe that Apache pilots would find a few laps around a race track awesome considering they fly attack helicopters. Our daughter Jac has assured everyone that this will have Luke smiling for weeks to come!
The picture shows Luke in the Team Red Bull car....That's actually one of his best smiles.
Remember, should you watch the US Army Fly Over of Apache helicopters at the Cocoa-Cola 600, Charlotte, NC on Memorial Day Weekend, my son-in-law, Luke, will be piloting one of them.
