While horrifying pictures from Hurricane Sandy continue to stream in, we here at Intercepts felt that everyone could use a laugh today. And it is, after all, Halloween – despite a troublesome lack of candy in the Defense News offices.

In that spirit, we present this fantastic series of images from 2003, featuring theĀ 101st Airborne taking part of a Halloween donkey race. Join us under the jump for more. And hey, if you have some good defense-themed costumes, let us know! Maybe they’ll find their way onto Intercepts.
