Givin thanks for services rendered
https://projecthealingwaters.org/
once upon a time
to the best of my recollections
I ingested some shrooms, watched Red Dawn
and woke up in fort benning ga, with sheep shears removing my hippie locks
and mean people screaming and belittling me in a manner id be shocked if they still were able to do to todays special snowflakes.
Turned me into a dog face solider and I spent a couple of fishless years driving a bradley around Deutschland, consuming bier, chasing fraulines , pullin guard duty on gorbys wall fore ronbo raygun and the Hof made him tear it down, and pretty much whatever the uncle said you were gonna do that day.
Until youre all that you can be or 0 days and a Private Frickin Civilian wake up

So the op to give a lil sumthins back to them using one of the things that shaped my lifes and gives it meanings not real hard.
I guess its been a few years now and a good dozen or so outings and ive had a chance to share a passion with a wide variety of vets
Were pretty blessed that a benevolent land owner lets us use his stunningly awesome spread and exercise his fish to help achieve our mission of healing those that served.
im not a big fan of hero shots and I should maybe remove some faces
but they are heros and I don't mind sharing a few from the last one


bent sum whippy sticks for the va busses rolled in


a young man came up and asked to pet sheldon said hes got a 7 yo saint at home
well ive been wearing a st b medalion round my neck for a couple decades of alpine travels now and hes my patron saint guy
i like it when the dogs line up and sharing with those you feel connected to is easier
good kid ,11b, got to do a lot of stuff i wanted to do 10th mountain ft drum then ft carson co, dealin with substance abuse issues
well welcome to the piscatorial pursuits of flyflingin addiction
it can consume yur time and make the bank fly outta yur wallet fast
for a never ever picked it up fairly fast

and well if excercisin big bows in a stunning location on a banner fall day doesnt jack the dopemines hugely
and leave you desiring mur

well theres other addictions, hobbies, and activities substances and ways to spend times in life

he stuck a good bakers dozen by lunch





which bought cheers of healin goods to those involved
feel free to thank a vet, donate a few duckets flies or gear you don't need or voli yur time, to help heal for a person responsible for freedom protection

If there's a finer way to spend a fall day, I haven't found it. Thank you, kind Sir, for your service AND for what you give back. God will surely note that in your plus column.

"which is nice"
the dr suese sigs $$$$
i gotta imagine if i make enough of these posts i can have the furkid as an avatar
and i wont have to type out a signature line at the bottom
might as well try to put sumthins decent in em


the gentalman in the front of the boat is blind
ive had a chance to fish with him and his seeing eye dog noel
its neat you need to learn be very descriptive in your fishing
and his other senses relay a lot more to him


who doesn't like to double up

Hey fishskibum, I have a little appreciation of where you're coming from. My son started out in the 100st Airborne and now is a Green Beret stationed at Carson. He has made several trips to the land of sand as well as other hot spots around the globe (like Germany Wink. He was hit with some shrapnel in one little engagement in Afghanistan and ended up with a Purple Heart. He has been given a free hunt for Kodiak bear in Alaska if he wants it. And he goes right to fishing to decompress after returning from a deployment. Anyway, I sure do appreciate how you are helping vets and wish you the best in all you do. And keep those posts comin'.

props to you for raisin em right and for him
there are not a lot of occupations or jobs that ifin you were to express your personal right
To tell your boss to take this job and shove it im going fishing today
you would have to spend some time incarcerated before you got to fish
not to mention the people trying to kill you and your team part of the gig
I havent been as blessed with the timing of
