Sept 9 2011 we lost our hero in Afghanistan do to small arms fire when people from that coutry attacked his unit.


The town that he grew up in Seminole Oklahoma has done many things to honor his memory and I just wanted to share. My step daughter Krysten wanted to do something to honor her brother and to keep him alive in people memorries and to remind them that freedom is not free. Brett loved to run which he did a lot. One New Year eve he and his Frat brother ran a relay from Seminole to Ada (30 miles) oh and it was about 15 deg outside all because someone said they couldn't do it. After the 1st year with out him Krysten took up running is started off with running around town but each run got longer and longer, she now has 5 marathons, 3 half and several 5K under her belt. She feels that Brett along with the Holy Spirt talks to her on these runs and gives her directions for her like along with great comfort. She and Brett had one of the best relationship that I have ever seen between a brother and sister. Well on one of these runs she got the idea of starting a 5 K run and the money would go to set up a scholarship  in Brett's name at the high school that they both graduated from. This plan started in Dec and she wanted the run to be the weekend before Memorial day! I'm here to tell you that she pulled it off, she got the city to block off roads that the runners would be on, a promotion company with timer so that it is a qualifing race for marathoners, sponsers, T shirts and medals. Never underestimate the drive of a young lady that loved her brother.

Faith Discussion / a GOD thing

Because sometime we just need to hear a good story.
Earlier this week a young man that had been in our church from the time he was conceived now he is married and has 2 kids of his own. He hadn't been feeling well for a few months so he went to a doctor and they did and MRI and told him that it looked like pancreatic cancer and scheduled him to see an oncologist on Friday, by the way he has had 2 family members I know of that have died of pancreatic cancer. Getting into see a specialist with in a week is kind of rare I think. There had been many Prayers said for him, well he gets to see the oncolgist on Friday and after all the test the doctor ask him if he believes in miracle and he said yes! The doctor said you should, "I don't know what your people did but there is no sign of cancer like the test showed from you doctor"

Praise God!

Growing up my grandfather had a several diffrent guns but the one I loved was his Winchester 1886 which my cousin got after he passed and sold for drug money some years later  :angry: Well when Winchester said they would make a reproduction of it I went to my LGS and placed one on order. Winchester was some what off on when they would be produced, I waited 2 1/2 years but it did come in. I don't like waiting! Took it out and shot 20 round of 45 70 now my right shoulder is black, blue and red but was total worth the wait. I guess that steel butt plate and 45 70 round was made for someone with no feeling in their shoulder or back in the day those guys shoulders could take a bunch more pounding

The wife and I are talking about a road trip to Cincinnati this summer. Would anyone have any suggestion of what we should not miss while we are there? We had talked about the Arc encounter anyone been? is it worth the drive?


CIEMR / Christmas memories
« on: December 25, 2017, 03:59:56 PM »
Many years ago when I was a inflight manitenance technican on the Airborne Command Post (the airplane with the keys to launch the nukes) because of the mission of the aircraft we had some priorities with things. We sitting in the alert bunker a plan was hatched and the maintenance and radio operators went out to the aircraft fired up the radios and started calling remote bases, camps and forts and asked if they would like to place a call home. This was before Facebook, moral call and the like. Bring some Chritsmas joy to families a minutes at a time. Most likly the best Christmas I spent away from the family.

Anyone else have some milatry Christmas stories?

CIEMR / Military Retirement
« on: December 20, 2017, 10:10:11 PM »

Evening rant!!

Went to a military retirement ceremony for a guy that I supervised many years ago when I was in (I sure hope this isn't making me old). Good to see many of the younger guys from when I retired an man so many new faces, I wondered if their mothers knew that they had gotten out of the house. But back to the rant: why in the world for a military retirement would you need to print the words to the Nation Anthem  in the program? 99% of the members are or had been military. The guy that was retiring wife and kids are the only ones that I knew had not been in the military. If you are going to defend this country I would think you could sign he first verse of our National anthem (I won't start on athletes especially Olympic ones) maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy

Rant off
