 And am I the only one that is wondering what Mike is agonizing about?

1) I'm trying to reel in a really big fish
2) I'm jealous Lee caught the sheepshead and want to throw them both overboard.
3) I'm in week 4 of quitting smoking (after about 50 years) and I'm having the DT's.
Probably some of both #2 and #3 Grin
If Lee is going to use that pic as his avatar, I'll pay to have me photoshopped out.

Keep at it Wally.
I smoked for 30 years and quitting was the best thing I ever did.
Vaping really takes the edge off.

during these last few years, i have had the privilege if sharing the rail with men who have served our country with honor and distinction.  i personally never served our country in the military, but if the bond developed with these charters is even a fraction of one percent of what guys in the service have, i can understand how such deep friendships develop.

I joined the Navy right out of High School.
I just thought it was the right thing to do.
I was not a career man or saw combat, but I do not regret it.
I came back home and have the same job and wife for 30 years.
It makes you a better person.
I'm glad to have served, but Wally served in the thick of it.
I hope to meet the man some day. Wink

I can't handle vaping. To me it's harder on my lungs than cigarettes. I had to go cold turkey. Make that Wild Turkey! Plus I walk around with a Snickers bar in my mouth as a placebo. I've gained about 10 lbs. Also, being on a boat for 8 days with food available 24-7 didn't do much for my willpower.

Joining the military was the single best decision I ever made. And it was an easy decision, if I didn't join, I'd get drafted  Smiley
As an 18 yo HS grad, a blue collar kid with no college prospects and no skillset, the Army gave me several opportunities to improve my lot in life. A year in VN was both the price they extracted and the final exam for all of my training. I'd easily make the same decision again.
And the GI bill allowed me to educate myself after I got off active duty. That may be the best government program out there.
Daron, we are going to meet on a FL beach one evening and solve all the worlds problems over a couple of shark rods and barley pops. Navarre is only a couple hours west of Mexico Beach. Just got to get MB put back together.
Brothers in Arms!

How appropriate you wrote that on Oct 25th, Alan, supposedly the anniversary of Henry V's famous St Crispin's Day speech in 1415 immortalized by Shakespeare:

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother.....

And no Ron, I wasn't there for the speech Smiley But I did help Willie Shakespeare write it.
The friendships and camaraderie I have formed through the AT website and multiple fishing trips remind me a lot of my military experiences; people from diverse locations and backgrounds sharing a common goal, and working together to achieve that goal. Focusing on what unites us, not caring about what separates us. Our country seems to have lost that. You certainly can't be thin skinned around this bunch!
 If Alan had been in the military, he would have been just like Sgt Ernie Bilko in the 1950's Phil Silvers TV comedy (not the 1990's Steve Martin cheap knockoff)  Smiley
Me? I was more like Will Stockdale (Andy Griffith) in "No Time for Sergeants".
Check those out on UTube if you like late 1950's G rated comedy.

Thanks for the report Mike, I was thinking about you today.
Great avatar, Lee! You look just like Robert Duvall in Open Range.

I love that quote. I have it on a T shirt I earned 20 years ago when I gave the Navy a bunch of blood so they could figure out that submariners suffer from vitamin D deficiency and that something needs to be done about it.
