The worlds most foward deployed boxing ring, bring it, 102 degrees at start time!

There is hot and there is damn hot.

FOB Caldwell Friday Night Fights, the ring was constructed by the 386th Combat Engineers of the Texas National Guard, and of course was initiated by them and First Squadron. It was NOT located on the regimental side of the the FOB, if you build it they will come, and they did. I thought I was going to die when I fought it was totally draining and at 46 I may have been the oldest guy to do it in the big ring. I got the 32 year old ex Army boxer in my match, not fun.

Tiedeman! Tiedeman! Tiedeman!
