Fishing The Teton River Plus A Comment

07 Nov

I had planned on writing a new post about fishing a beautiful small mountain lake for some hungry trout, but, I am a U.S. Army Veteran and the incident at Ft. Hood just took me out for a few days. Somethings are just not understandable!

However, I thought I would share this new video from Trout Unlimited. Hope you enjoy and I will post the fishing trip in a few days.

    Mel I am with you and millions of other Americans in my inability to understand this kind of atrocity. We must over come our instinct to hate and find a better path for all people to follow. Chin up and tight lines.

    Hey, Mel. I served in the Army too, and that incident upsets my stomach. That kind of thing SHOULD NOT happen between brothers-in-arms. But since Sept. 11, 2001, I'll bet there is some turmoil going on within the ranks that we don't hear about. I think we'll be living with what happened that day for generations.But maybe my diagnosis is wrong. Just a feeling I got. Most times I trust my gut.

    MelDidn't know you were a vet. Thanks for your service. I am a teacher that has many former students serving in the armed forces. I have even lost a former student in Afghanistan. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the duty our armed servicemen/women have done for our country both in the past and the present.

    So strange, I don't see a video. I grew up Military family, my Papa, and I was stunned. I guess even if I hadn't grown up with a Military Dad, I would still be shocked. Thinking of you, those families and all of our military men and woman.

    Wandering Owl – The impact will last for generations! It is terribly sad when a soldier doesn't know when to look over his shoulder for fear his comrad's are his enemy. I agree trust your gut.

    Matt T- Amen my friend. Our troops should be in our thoughts everyday. Not just on Veterans Day or when a tragedy raises its ugly head.
