After getting a grand tour of the Stryker vehicles
designed for chemical reconnaissance,
the team thanked the troops and paused for a photo.
The final day of the 2016 tour of champions visit with American troops in the Middle East – known as Operation Appreciation – was no less meaningful than Day 1 of the annual event sponsored by Summit Racing Equipment and arranged by Armed Forces Entertainment. The holiday-time trip, established to boost morale and bring a little bit of home to our deployed troops, took place in Kuwait and extended across four military installations. Summit Racing Pro Stock drivers Greg Anderson and Jason Line, Screamin’ Eagle Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson riders Andrew Hines and Eddie Krawiec, and Summit Racing BIGFOOT 4×4 Monster Truck drivers Dan Runte and Larry Swim met with hundreds of members of our Armed Forces on the tour and gained a fresh perspective on what life is like for these men and women on station.
Hines, who joined Operation Appreciation for the first time in 2012, has always had a keen interest in the Armed Forces of the United States, making each excursion an enjoyable learning experience as well as a meaningful opportunity to thank those who are deployed. On the final day of this year’s trip, Hines and the team visited Camp Patriot, a small Kuwait navy base and U.S. Army camp located on the Eastern coast.
