First-years Paul Madsen, Brad Oglevee and Dan Ketelsleger take a breather from the action.

 

On May 11, Booth's Armed Forces Group (AFG) hosted their annual Charity Paintball Event to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. In spite of the respective fighting forces being somewhat "groggy" (thanks to a big night with Follies the night before), the combatants quickly regained their strength and the event was a huge success. Participants met bright and early at the Gleacher Center for the bus trip to the battlefield (CPX Paintball in Joliet, IL) where they spent the entire day battling it out across 100+ acres of terrain. In spite of a raging battle, no injuries were sustained (excluding some suspicious looking bumps and circular bruises).

The Armed Forces Group Charity Paintball Event is now in its fourth year of existence and continues to be a signature event by the AFG. One of this year's participants, Michael Phipps '14, summed it up best when he said "the paintball trek was an awesome event and, thanks to AFG, for a great cause! From ghost towns to car junkyard set-ups, the field scenarios were incredible. It was a lot of fun and I'm definitely planning to sign-up again next year."
