In celebration of National Poetry Month and to help combat the rigors of stay-at-home orders by introducing a bit of levity and fun, the 910th Airlift Wing is hosting a virtual poetry slam on our favorite subject: The venerable C-130H Hercules aircraft, and we want to showcase YOUR talent!
Pretty much everyone. We’re not picky. Facebook fan? Write a C-130 poem. 910th member? Write a C-130 poem. Homeschooling your kids for a few weeks? Teach them about poetry and encourage them to write a C-130 poem.
Submit your poems by April 30th.
Write an original poem in any style. Use the form below to submit your entry by April 30.
Whereas military regulations prohibit us from offering prizes of any actual monetary value, we will proudly feature our favorite poems in a video reading by 910th members who actually fly these mighty Hercs for a living! What could be better?
We will also feature a selection of our favorite poems on this page after the Herculean Poetry Slam concludes.
