Went to spend a little time at my father's grave today. Memorial Day flag was at half mast when my wife and I got there. Still miss the guy a lot. He was a WW11 vet with the 8th Army Air Force and pioneered the Norton bombsights over Europe to bring an end to the Nazis.

But more than that, he was a lifetime fisherman and drove a launch, raised 6 kids and always treated everyone as a friend. I was fortunate enough to be the boat captain on his very last catch on Mille Lacs. I even got a video of it at the 2016 Take A Vet Fishing event.

Take a look at the link:

Right now, we have 68 vets and 34 boats registered. Our goal is to get 100 vets and 50 boats for this year's event. Families are welcome and we still have some room for this free patriotic event. Donations and costs are all tax deductible. It's a great way to spend a Sunday morning! Sign up!

This is a great event and wish I could attend but I was invited to fish up in Canada that week. Really going to miss the chance again this year to fish and meet my fellow Veterans and all those very kind fisherman who donate their time, money and boats every year for this great event. Hope the weather and the fish cooperate...........Kirk

Thanks for the good wishes, Kirk. We'll miss you this year.

Good news, though. This year we have about 50 boats.

We still have room for some more vets. If you're a veteran and would like to sign up, you can do so right here:Take A Vet Fishing
