Operation Appreciation Day 4- Greg Anderson

NAVAL AIR FACILITY ATSUGI, Japan - Four-time NHRA Pro Stock champion Greg Anderson has been part of the Operation Appreciation tour since 2011, and he is always particularly appreciative of the time allotted to spend with our troops stationed for duty across the globe. The 2017 trip, though, shifted perspective a bit. Anderson, along with Summit Racing NHRA Pro Stock teammate Jason Line, Harley-Davidson Vance & Hines Pro Stock Motorcycle champions Eddie Krawiec and Andrew Hines, and Summit Racing BIGFOOT ® 4x4 Monster Truck drivers Dan Runte and Larry Swim, were welcomed by not just the troops at the bases they visited in Japan - but also by many of their families.

The first stop of the day at NAF Atsugi was at the café,
where troops gather to eat and socialize
Anderson spoke to OnAllCylinders after Day 4 of the journey and a visit to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, the largest U.S. Navy base in the Pacific Ocean.

"Each of these bases that we've had the opportunity to visit here are places where you would want to be. They each have a very important mission, and they take their responsibilities very seriously, but it is quite a departure from the bases we visited in Kuwait these last couple of years. It's a different view of military life, and it put even more perspective on what is happening across the globe and how big our reach is.
