U.S. Marines M1151 Humvee
Look for the Humvee and Marine Recruiters stationed in the Infield!
The M1151 HMMWV has a heavier chassis and improved engine to handle add-on armor. It is built on an Expanded Capacity Vehicle chassis, which allows for more passengers or additional supplies (up to 2,300 lbs).
Its two or four-seat variant is the M1152 Enhanced Troop/Cargo/Shelter Carrier, designed to replace the M1097A2 Heavy HMMWV and M1113 Expanded Capacity Vehicle.

World-renowned Tenor Anthony Kearns
Tenor Anthony Kearns took the American television audience by storm in 1999 as the youngest member of the wildly popular musical group, The Irish Tenors with whom he has 10 CDs and five PBS specials. Their CDs have gone Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum. American critics hailed Kearns as perhaps the most likely of the three (Irish Tenors) to “achieve the level of tenor super stardom enjoyed by Pavarotti and a handful of other singers.” Mr. Kearns said his appearance at the 2016 Preakness Stakes combines two of his great passions: music and horses. “I have a great fondness for horses which goes back to my childhood”. Now residing in the U.S., Kearns hails from County Wexford, Ireland – home of famed Irish horse trainer Aidan O’Brien – and many great horse breeders, trainers and jockeys. That’s where he “gained an appreciation of horses and the horse industry,” he said. Mr. Kearns had the pleasure of singing at the 137th Preakness in 2012 and more recently, at Jim McKay Day at the Maryland Million Races at Laurel Park. Among other charities for military causes, he was proud to sing at a benefit for Saratoga WarHorse – an organization that pairs retired race horses with soldiers suffering from war trauma.
Mr. Kearns has a robust international solo career, delighting audiences with performances that draw from a wide variety of opera, folk music, classical and international favorites. Mr. Kearns frequently performs at charity concerts, on television, in operas, and with the finest symphony orchestras in the world. On May 23, Mr. Kearns will headline a one-night-only performance with opera singer Tara Erraught as part of “IRELAND 100: Celebrating a Century of Irish Arts & Culture” at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Mr. Kearns has had the honor to sing for three U.S. Presidents, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Medal of Honor recipients, and at the Pre-Mass concert in Philadelphia for Pope Francis. www.anthonykearnstenor.com Contact: Kirsten Fedewa (on behalf of Anthony Kearns): 202.365.6936
