  1. After 15 months over in Iraq my best fishing buddy came home 10-29. Took me a little while but I finally got him out in the boat at the rock. Fished just a couple hours but he ended up landing 3 fish and missing another nice male at the boat. Been over 2 years since him and I were able to go fishing. Was really nice to see him smile after he landed the first one. Got him up to the Grand on Sunday and he landed 7 and lost 4 more. Said he wants to go a couple more times before he has to report back to base on Thanksgiving.
    I know we'll be on a river somewere this weekend. Can't wait.

  5. I also would like to thank your son for his service and commitment. Hearing stories like yours first hand help to remind folks of the commitment that people make when they serve our country. I am glad you got to spend some good quality time together as well in brief visit home.
