USAF squadron encouraging Airmen to “axe their ex” on Valentine’s Day

In what appears to be an attempt to help alleviate the stress from single Airmen, who will be alone on Valentine’s Day, an Air Force squadron at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is encouraging its members to harness their hatred for their previous partners during an event.

“Outdoor Recreation is showing their love for the heartbroken Valentine’s Day haters by hosting an Axe Your Ex event!” the 88th Force support squadron posted online.

They encouraged Airmen to bring item items from their former partners to use as targets during some “axe-throwing therapy.”

“It’s time to bury the hatchet!” they wrote.

Participation in the event will cost Airmen $20 and they must sign up by February 3rd.

Those who are interested should call 937-257-9889 for more information.

Responses to the event have seemed to be mixed, with some stating it is a genius idea and others calling it ridiculous.

“As long as Mental Health is in attendance or at least on standby, I can’t possibly see this backfiring,” one person wrote.

“Points for creativity. Maybe have the crisis intervention team there on standby just in case,” another added.

“This is why WPAFB is honestly the best base CONUS (laughing emojis),” another chimed in, possibly sarcastically.
