I hope JC paid his air bill. 

Hate to see him get nailed with a late fee.

It took me a sec to pick up on that last gif, but hot damn that's funny.  Also love Simone going through the fire and flames to get to that pillar.

They play a military song over the base-wide PA at 5pm, and if you're outdoors, you're requried to stop whatever you're doing, face the direction you hear the music coming from, and render a salute until the music is finished playing. The "goal" in this scenario is to not be outside at 5pm, so you don't have to stand there saluting what invariably turns out to be the blank side of a building for minutes on end all by yourself.

For this purpose, standing at attention is good enough too. Also, if you can't tell where the flag or the music is coming from, you can always default to facing the moon.

There's layers of humor in this. Anyways, the dude was a total class act during the games.

There are accidents every so often at work when people driving in at 0630 dont pull over and stop for reveille.

After seeing the video and especially that Reddit post, I hope to meet Sam Kendricks and shake his hand.  I'm not a super-patriotic guy, but damn I can't help but feel happy seeing that.

He's in the military.  US Flag Code says that he can stand at attention and be in compliance. :)
