I sponsored a peewee flag football team and cheerleaders in memory of my Dad and we called them the Spectres. When my Dad retired he went fishing and he called ball games, any kind of ball game he was an official. When we lived on base I was a scorekeeper and he taught me how to play basketball, volleyball, softball we spent a LOT of time together in gyms and on ball fields so this seemed like a good thing to do for him. The kids are 6, 7 and 8 year olds."  Lama Huff

Photo called "The Flying Aces Burrito

A little story...After that bout, at the after party, I was approached by a prior AC pilot that wanted a photo of me with him and his friend. We hammed it up while he took a front shot and one where I was showing the back of my shirt with my name. cool. Makes me very happy to be able to show respect to those that payed the ultimate sacrifice on the Spirit 03 mission. If you have Facebook, friend the "Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls" website. They post pics and video clips of the bouts. 

With much respect and love,

Aerial Spectre AKA Capt Kristen Jacob, Nellis AFB
