Airmen from Osan

Special thanks to the U.S. fans who showed up for the match today. There weren't a heck of a lot of them, but they sure made a lot of noise, which is much appreciated. Kudos to the boys from Osan Air Base who busted out the body paint, American flags and full voice. Sam's Army? These guys were Abby's Army! Well, actually, Abby's Air Force. Often when the team travels around the world, the U.S. military are among the few fans cheering for them, so it's certainly much appreciated. Thanks also to the kids of the U.S. military personnel who came to the match. Well done on the outfits. You guys rock. We are glad the players got to spend a bit of time after the game chatting, signing some autographs and taking some pictures. Always nice to see so many friendly faces so far from home. Thanks for spreading the word about the final to all your friends in Seoul and Suwon. Hopefully, we see some American flags in the stands on Saturday.

TK compares biceps with an Airman from Osan Air Base. It's one of few battles she has lost this tournament. (Ok, she was actually just posing for a picture, but them is some impressive pythons).

I am truly humbled from my chance to meet Kia and whole team. While overseas we are often reminded that America Supports us warfighters. Well, I would just like to share the sentiment and say that "America Supports you!" We Soldier, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines are proud of what you do, and honored to see you serve our country in a different but important way.

P.S. I'd say it was a tie.
