Shank Recreation

Here are some of the things that you can do over at FOB Shank when you have free time.

The softball field is the pride and joy of CSM Lange. There is even a league with regularly scheduled games. It is pretty elaborate, with an announcer's box and even something like astro turf in the infield.

The Pathfinders put together this nice little outdoor gym. It even has a climbing wall as well as a bench and a couple of machines.
This is a photo of the expanded gym along with the MWR tents. The center and left tents are for the gym expansion. There are a couple of smaller dome tents behind these two where the original gym was. The tent on the right is the MWR. It is connected to another tent that houses the computers and phones.

This last photo is of the crew chief offices. 1SG Horn and the crew chiefs and door gunners built this covered deck. The lower deck is for playing corn hole. It was all the rage in Kandahar, almost everyone got into it, including the staff officers. Maybe it will take over again.
