Default A good person

I first met Scott in the early 90's while attending a unit armors course at Fort Campbell, KY. Our paths have crossed many times and a few years ago, we were stationed in Hawaii together in units just down the street from each other. He is a very good person, although I must admit that I am a little jealous of his most recent assignment. I haven't been to Valdez since the oil spill when people were sleeping on the side walks waiting to get a job with the clean-up effort. I was lucky enough to make it on a black bear hunt on the Kenai Pennisula last month but I can't wait until I can move back to Alaska for good. Tell Scott that Gary Graham sends his regards.

I just happened to look in this forum, never usually do, but boy am I glad I did. Let me add one more great big thanks to Scott for his service, especially for a Medivac pilot. They many time place themselves in harms way, without the chance to defend themselves, to assist others that cannot get out on their own, having had a dad and brother both wounded in two wars, WWII, and Nam, a BIG thanks. I entered service at the tail end of Nam (Army, 72-75) so I never went there.

To Dave,
You are a true gentleman, for you service to Scott and many others I'm sure. I have no doubt you were as happy as Scott when he got his bear. It's a joy one cannot explain to see someone else you helped be so successful. Like Scott said, that hunt would have been a dream, bear or no bear.

To Scott, if he has a chance to read these posts, what an excellent story, and yes you should send it off, I'd for sure try to send it to TJ or E.D. Thomas, since it was with the Black Widow. They'll eat it up, and they should. The fact it was done with a traditional bow and such a beautiful bear make it even sweeter. Nice work and congratulations!

God, Family, and guns, in that order!

Just started on this forum.Dave you will find a place in Heaven for sure. As a Viet Nam vet I can say how much this well mean to these young men years from now and it will change their life forever. I'm proud of all of the folks that step up and serve their country and equally proud of the Americans that say thanks.
