A friend of the Army

Lug Nut, the Lowe's Motor Speedway mascot, greets 3rd Infantry Division Soldiers before they march onto the race track to start off the Bank of America 500 on Oct. 14 in Charlotte, N.C. Photo by Spc. Emily Wilsoncroft.

Well THANK WHOMEVER that LUG NUT isn't the offical ARMY macsot.
Makes me ashamed to say I'm from NC.
But I am.
(and my former unit HQ is 15 min from the speedway too...can't schedule drills on RACE weekend. Cant get to the Reserve Center...)

Haji - Lugnut is an honorable name...the Lansing Lugnuts have played in the single A Midwest League for years. Sure, it sounds a little funny...

Got a chance to send my guys off to the Texans game in September. They participated in a field size flag carry and got to experience some firsthand gratitude from the regular folks who make up our great nation.

If you ever need a bit of a boost, go participate in a public event in uniform.
