Nobody said this would be a swift assignment even though ribbon-cuttings are usually over quickly. But the 122nd ANG had four - count 'em - four ribbons to cut Thursday morning.
There were three new spaces to open and a ribbon to cut to open the ceremony to introduce the other three ribbons. Plus about two hours of speeches.
But, time was running out, so after the second ribbon, I jumped to the end and headed for the STARBASE: a classroom designed to teach kids about science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM. And there I found a photo that didn't involve people with over-sized scissors. Just kids having fun...and the STARBASE sign above them.
