This blog will be a break from the usual Navy Stuff , but sort of the same too! Just down the road from us is Macdill Airforce base , where UScentcom(central command) and many other special operations (Green Berets , Navy Seals , Rangers , etc.) are based there . So for the Independence Day Celebration at The Marauders Minor league baseball game had fireworks and a Paratrooper Jump , which was great , and a much safer jump for a change as no one is shooting at them , and we were a much friendlier crowd for a change. They are sent to Macdill for a break of sorts , so we benefit from their practice and keep their qualifications up to date while they are there . So we both benefit from it!
