to the forum and thank you for the kind words. I think we all know where you are coming from when it comes to military obligations verses the waterfowl season. Then when we do get home and the season is open we are gone again to the blind.
Remember that behind every Soldier, Marine, Sailor, and Airmen there is a family that makes alot of sacrifices on a daily basis. It is a delicate balancing act for both of you, but it can be done.
Hang in there, It's not easy but before you know it you will be back home with your loved one's and whacking and stacking the birds.
Stay safe and keep in touch here for a sanity check whenever you need a waterfowling fix or support from your brothers and sisters.
