I live the blessed life. My family loves me. I have good health. I work as a deer biologist. Many of these blessings are made possible by the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and staff that supports them. It's very easy for me to go about my daily life and not consider those that are away from their family so my family can have the opportunity to enjoy safety and freedom. The image of CJ Winand, my friend and fellow wildlife biologist, is a great reminder that freedom isn't free. CJ volunteered to leave family, a good job, and his bow (CJ's an avid and skilled archery hunter) to serve his country.
Thanks CJ and all the troops that are serving the USA. I truly appreciate your friendship and service.
