                                           Volunteering at the MCAS Miramar Air Show October 1st-3rd

                            For the 2010 Miramar Air Show, the Single Marine Program signed up to volunteer at a
                            food booth, which consisted of cheeseburgers, hotdogs, chips and beverages. This was
                            also a fundraiser for the SMP. This was unlike any other time that I volunteered at the
    SMP                     Air Show because most of the time it’s not usually what I would consider a good time.
                            This was not the case at our booth because the work was easy and we had a good time
   Holiday                  attracting customers with chants, “Hot Dogs!! Cheeseburgers!! Ice Cold, Bottle Water!!”
                            One of the managers who oversaw the food booths complimented us on our quick and
    Food                    great service. We had one of the busiest booths at the Air Show with everybody
                            assigned a position, we could offer non-stop service during peak hours. It was a great
    Drive                   time and I had no problem working all of the shifts. We provided every service

  Taping of                                                      zombies, dancing Krueger wenches, and the dreaded clowns. We all decided to
