Fill 'er 22,000'

I've been saving these October photos for the Veterans Day holiday.

If you are active duty military or a vet, please know...
We deeply appreciate your commitment to our country and your service.

The Armed Forces are a major presence in our region, and the Bulls support our military personnel each summer with several promotions and events.

The favor was repaid last month.

Our staff was invited aboard a KC-135R Stratotanker based at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro. The Bulls front office went airborne with the 916th Air Refueling Wing.

Business Class for the staff.

Bulls' Assistant GM Jon Bishop in First Class.

They cruised up to Kentucky for a midair refueling mission at 22,000 feet. Very cool.
