well howdy there. havent been on here in a while because i have been busy doing what i love to do the most, go fishing. yes thats right i go to go fishing at the good ole ballard country refuge. i was fortunate enough to take my midtour leave a few days ago so i get to come home and hang out with my mom and dad for a few days. as you may or may not have known the TV segment got cancelled. no worries though, we are trying to work something out for the fall when i get home. that way we can schedule the appropriate things and all you guys will be corralled in the school. i have to report back to atlanta on the 27 and then its back to afghanistan for a couple more months. but until then i am going to spend all the time on the water i can. you guys take care and have a great summer.
