March Military Expo

March 25th marked the beginning of the Military Expo, a 5 day convention that celebrates Military Life in Second Life.MElogo

Event Manager Jessii Warhol states: “ I saw that there were a lot of Military  vehicle creators in Second Life, many of which aren’t known the residents who are outside of the Military community. I wanted to draw attention to them, as well as the World War II Memorial sims. ”

The World War II Memorial sims are home to the Flying Tigers, a military/ roleplay aviation group that is based on the real life Flying Tigers, the  American Volunteer Group of the Chinese Air force. It is also home to a scale replica of the World War ll Memorial in Washington D.C. USA.

DecedentflyingPilot Decedent Chemistry joined the Flying Tigers in 2011: “ Well I have always enjoyed flying around in SL for as long as I can remember. I had even attempted to get into the field in real life but wasn’t approved. At the time I joined I was looking for a new place to fly that had engaging staff and members that got along well with each other. I gave it a shot and I’m still here a year later. “

Jessii comments: “ We are a newcomer friendly sim, any one who is interested in military aviation, weaponry or vehicles are welcome to join us.”
