Army being Army & Ft Bragg Fam Camp

This is a view of the Army burning the brush about 400 meters from my rig today. Despite 6 mph sustained winds & some good size gusts, along with the fact that a broken water pipe ended our access to water this morning, the Army in its infinite wisdom & glory is still goin thru w/the burns... The 2nd pix is a view of their only vehicle on overwatch, a pickup, & 2 guys starting even more burns... Gotta love Army determination; they made their plan & they're stickin to it no matter the possible result! Can you see fubar in the making? Lol!Click image for larger version

Hey 10scDust; most fam camps & other outdoor rec activities are allowed for civilian employees of D.O.D., on a Space A basis. Different Commands can (& sometimes do) limit or expand the normal permitted categories which include (but not limited to): Retired, Active, Reserve/Guard when on orders, Service Academy Cadets (all branches), when on leave, M.O.H. recipients, 100% Disabled Veterans, & the Dependent family members of all of the above...The Smith Lake Ft Bragg Army Travel Camp is where I'm at right now & they also permit access to employees of Ft Bragg's Aafees & PX on a Space A basis
