Armed Forces Boxing Championships Lackland AFB Day 1 photos and report Esteban Erik Stipnieks(not a participant do not repost)



It is the gateway to the USAF. It is where many of the heroes who have protected life, liberty done extraordinary deeds had their valor developed, loyalty heightened, and sense of duty deepened. I have written (essay on other site) that the military value system that simply put has kept us free. Lackland is one of those places where those values are developed. The Armed forces boxing championships is a celebration of values of those who defend our freedom. Pentagon TV and military media was there. For the first night if I could tell San Antonio boxing fans….take the classiest amateur show you have been to and this it. Many people who have made many sacrifices were in attendance. To those in uniform this report and photos is a token of gratitude for the freedom I enjoy because of your valor.
