Doing what you love is medicine to the body and soul. Add in the joy of experiencing your passion amongst friends brings an additional sweetness to the total experience. This past week Doug and Travis two Purple Heart recipients had the time of their lives. They were guest of Mellon Creek Outfitters and WildLifers owned By Dan and Stephanie Braman. They and their staff provide a tremendous experience for our Veterans and First Responders. I witnessed again this year as both men harvested two awesome whitetail bucks. What I may not be able to write down is the good feeling that all involved experienced but none more than the two veterans. Year after year I hear from previous Veterans that attended how much this experience still means to them. I am sure this trip will be no different.

Today marks one of the darkest days in American History the attacks of 9/11. It also marks the day that all Americans came together united, determined, focused, and resolute. Because we have brave men and women serving this country in the military, law enforcement, and other first responders I am reminded that Freedom isn't free and there are those before us and after that are willing to pay the price to preserve and protect all that we hold dear. #NeverForgotten #Honor #veterans

This past weekend we had a booth at the 40th Dixie Deer Classic. We had some very nice raffle items, a custom farm table generously donated by Wayne Kearney, a custom knife and hand stitched alligator leather sheath from Stephenson Knives, and a set of binoculars with front carry pouch from Vortex Optics. We sold out of the tickets well before the drawing. Pictured is Vietnam Veteran Marine Jimmy Hoyle. I am so happy he was one of our winners. Mr Hoyle thank you for your service and Welcome Home sir, Welcome Home.

Pray for our military

Let’s remember all our military and first responders who don’t get Christmas off.

12/18/2019

Sometimes history hits home. For me it relates to the Battle of the Bulge. Just 8 days before this event occurred my Uncle gave his life as an American Soldier. He was KIA by a German sniper. He was the only son for my grandparents who he shared his reason for wanting to serve. Reluctantly my grandfather did not stop him. Today we still have young men and women cut out of the same cloth they want and do serve. As we head into Christmas Season please take time to reflect on the selfless service of our men and women in uniform, lets include our first responders too. May God protect them all as we close out 2019 and enter 2020.

A lot to admire in a man that sacrifices his own comfort in the defense of others.

A lot to admire in a man that sacrifices his own comfort in the defense of others.

For all the fans of “It’s A Wonderful Life” and Jimmy Stewart. Just months after winning his 1941 Academy Award for best actor in “The Philadelphia Story,” Jimmy Stewart, one of the best-known actors of the day, left Hollywood and joined the US Army. He was the first big-name movie star to enlist in World War II.

An accomplished private pilot, the 33-year-old Hollywood icon became a US Army Air Force aviator, earning his 2nd Lieutenant commission in early 1942. With his celebrity status and huge popularity with the American public, he was assigned to starring in recruiting films, attending rallies, and training younger pilots.

Stewart, however, wasn’t satisfied. He wanted to fly combat missions in Europe, not spend time in a stateside training command. By 1944, frustrated and feeling the war was passing him by, he asked his commanding officer to transfer him to a unit deploying to Europe. His request was reluctantly granted.

Stewart, now a Captain, was sent to England, where he spent the next 18 months flying B-24 Liberator bombers over Germany. Throughout his time overseas, the US Army Air Corps' top brass had tried to keep the popular movie star from flying over enemy territory. But Stewart would hear nothing of it.

Determined to lead by example, he bucked the system, assigning himself to every combat mission he could. By the end of the war he was one of the most respected and decorated pilots in his unit.

But his wartime service came at a high personal price.

In the final months of WWII he was grounded for being “flak happy,” today called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

When he returned to the US in August 1945, Stewart was a changed man. He had lost so much weight that he looked sickly. He rarely slept, and when he did he had nightmares of planes exploding and men falling through the air screaming (in one mission alone his unit had lost 13 planes and 130 men, most of whom he knew personally).

He was depressed, couldn’t focus, and refused to talk to anyone about his war experiences. His acting career was all but over.

As one of Stewart's biographers put it, "Every decision he made [during the war] was going to preserve life or cost lives. He took back to Hollywood all the stress that he had built up.”

In 1946 he got his break. He took the role of George Bailey, the suicidal father in “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The rest is history.

Actors and crew of the set realized that in many of the disturbing scenes of George Bailey unraveling in front of his family, Stewart wasn’t acting. His PTSD was being captured on filmed for potentially millions to see.

But despite Stewart's inner turmoil, making the movie was therapeutic for the combat veteran. He would go on to become one of the most accomplished and loved actors in American history.

When asked in 1941 why he wanted to leave his acting career to fly combat missions over Nazi Germany, he said, "This country's conscience is bigger than all the studios in Hollywood put together, and the time will come when we'll have to fight.”

This holiday season, as many of us watch the classic Christmas film, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” it’s also a fitting time to remember the sacrifices of Jimmy Stewart and all the men who gave up so much to serve their country during wartime. We will always remember you!

Postscript:

While fighting in Europe, Stewart's Oscar statue was proudly displayed in his father’s Pennsylvania hardware store. Throughout his life, the beloved actor always said his father, a World War I veteran, was the person who had made the biggest impact on him.

Jimmy Stewart was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1985 and died in 1997 at the age of 89.

To all of my Veteran Friends with Gratitude in my heart I want to express my gratefulness for your service to the United States of America. You protected us from our enemies both foreign and domestic. I pray for the protection of those still serving, for those who were injured, and especially for those who carry the silent wounds of war. May God Bless you and yours in all that you do. The men and women I know are so thankful for our men and women of service. We understand what it takes to defend Freedom and the American Way. #Veteran #Honor #Respect #GratitudeforPatriots

I have never found the right way to express all the goodness that I have witnessed come from these Purple Heart Honor Hunts. The adjectives that come to mind would not do justice nor describe the emotional well being that I have seen every time. In my wildest dreams I never thought how positively powerful these hunts would be. Our premise was very simple, show our gratitude for their selfless sacrifice of serving our country. Dan Braman owner Mellon Creek Outfitters and the people who assist him create an environment that is second to none. Many of the veterans express how quickly that felt comfortable. They share that within a very short period they feel welcomed as if they were family. That can only happen when it is honest and real. Because it is these hashtags fit all involved. #Friends #Honor #Respect #Thankful

Couple of the bucks from our men’s veteran hunt.
They did great!

You can make a huge difference in the life of a combat wounded veteran.

Just returned from the annual Support US Armed Forces Purple Heart Honor Hunt held at #MellonCreekOutfitters. These combat wounded veterans received the same outstanding services that I have learned to expect. Each of the men that attended were treated as top clients. It starts from the moment they arrive to the last second they leave. They all harvested very nice whitetail deer. As we were sitting around having a conversation I heard it said "even if I don't harvest a deer this trip is a trip of a lifetime because the atmosphere here is awesome". Another one said "they made us feel like family". Our heartfelt thanks to all who made this possible Dan Braman and Stephanie Hardesty Braman to their guides, camera crew, lodge staff it is remarkable how much positive happens for these veterans and for me as well. It is done in such a short amount of time, however it last a lifetime. Thank you. #wildliferstv #supportusarmedforces #PurpleHeartHonorHunters #nofences #freerangehunting #deerhunting #hunting

There is always someone there for you if you look. They don't have to say a word your no longer isolated.

"Today was a Difficult Day," said Pooh.

There was a pause.

"Do you want to talk about it?" asked Piglet.

"No," said Pooh after a bit. "No, I don't think I do."

"That's okay," said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

"What are you doing?" asked Pooh.

"Nothing, really," said Piglet. "Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don't feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

"But goodness," continued Piglet, "Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you've got someone there for you. And I'll always be here for you, Pooh."

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs...he thought that his best friend had never been more right.
