Team 96th Logistics Readiness Squadron, Eglin AFB had a great turnout for the Eglin Connects Event. This was in conjunction with Team Eglin Wingman Day. Many joined at Foster Field to compete in activities such as basketball, foot races and frisbee in an effort to build social resiliency by making connections with similar interests. All military, civilians and families of Team Eglin participated and had the opportunity to connect with local community clubs, collectors and hobbyists. Several local support agencies were also there to share information, including the USO! We were happy to provide Gatorade’s to hydrate everyone, and giveaways to have fun throughout the day! A special shout out to the youth group at Rocky Bayou Baptist Church for helping us set up! They provided some muscle and wanted to show their support for our military by participating in the #Flex4Forces campaign.
