Airmen play ‘Hungry Hippos’ for team-building experience

Fox News


Airmen at Travis Air Force Base in California are playing life-size games of Hungry Hungry Hippos for training.

The 60th Air Mobility Wing public affairs office posted seven photos of members of the Air Force playing the children’s game last week.

“Airmen launch into a life-size version of ‘Hungry Hungry Hippos’ as part of a team building experience during Wingman Day activities,” a caption reads. “The Wingman Day program provides training, and hands-on participation exercises for Airmen and frontline supervisors to enhance their ability to recognize and effectively intervene with other Airmen in distress, utilizing the PRESS (Prepare, Recognize, Engage, Send, and Sustain) model.”

  1. That looks like a lot of fun! I’m sure they thought it was too. However, I believe it’s a waste of time and taxpayer money. Coming from a cold-war Army background, I can think of many other “team building” exercises that cost nearly nothing, and is actually exercise! Imagine that. Unfortunately, my training regimen would probably make them cry, so I guess I better just remain on the sidelines.

  2. I am sure this was a “fruitful” experience & fun had by all. What’s next? Snorting lines of Pixie dust?
