Fishing For Freedom

Just got back from the 3rd annual Fishing For Freedom event in Quincy, Ill. Had a great time again, met some new people and saw some old friends. Too much rain so the fishing was not as good this year. Had 2 book signings at the local Hyvee stores and raised some money for my care packages.  I did get to see some Mig 21s and Mig 29s at the airport. One of the Veteran fisherman took me up to the hanger to check them out! Had some people tell me they are joining us on our cruise next Jan for the Thank a Veteran cruise. Check out for information. Here are some pictures from the event, you can see more on my FB page

Ft Bragg and Lowes Motor Speedway for Memorial Day

I had a great time at Ft Bragg and Lowes Motor Speedway. I got to meet several of my Facebook fans at Ft Bragg and got to shake hands with Oliver North and about 1000 troops at the racetrack when they entered for the Pappa Johns pizza lunch. Thanks to all that came out to see me and help me support our troops! If you want to see how you can help please visit my website at

Here are some pictures from the weekend.
