Jason Line and Greg Anderson had no idea
that they would meet a fellow Minnesotan
while on tour in Kuwait. SSgt. Synnott
actually lives in Duluth, MN, Anderson's home town.
The mid-point of the meaningful and memorable troop-morale tour in the Middle East took Operation Appreciation drivers to Camp Arifjan, a United States Army installation. The team, consisting of Summit Racing Pro Stock drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line, Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle riders Andrew Hines and Eddie Krawiec, and Summit Racing BIGFOOT® 4×4 Monster Truck drivers Dan Runte and Larry Swim, was warmly received by the troops there and invited in for a behind-the-scenes look at some rather remarkable equipment.
Anderson has been a regular on the tour since 2011, but there is always a surprise or two over the course of the week. This time, it was running into someone who resides in the town where he grew up: Duluth, Minn. Anderson and Ssgt. Synnott crossed paths when the team visited the 312th Engineer Company at Arifjan, where heavy equipment is maintained and housed.
