5th Special Forces GroupFort Campbell, KY – Soldiers and Green Berets erupted from dense forest under the cover of night and fought shoulder-to-shoulder through controlled chaos, exhaustion and enemy forces in the training area on post Friday, August 16th, 2019.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Sturgis Chronicles – Part 1

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Since I began this journey, I’ve been committed to traveling as far and wide as I could possibly afford.  We all have a bucket list, and if a visit to Sturgis South Dakota isn’t on it, then you might want to re-examine your list.

I was invited to join three other brothers to this year’s 79th edition of the Sturgis Rally.  Last year when I was asked,  I thought to myself that I had at least a year to REALLY decide if I wanted to go.

Then I paid my hotel fees (which had to be paid in advance) and I realized that I HAD to go now and there was no looking back.  I’m grateful that I didn’t change my mind, and I’m blessed by the people I went with and the sites I saw.
