Fishing yesterday with my 82nd brother he met a Boog I was told this to me is therapy

Last edited Mon Aug 26, 2019, 07:05 AM - Edit history (1)

I posted in vets how other day I ran into this recently retired officer at diner on Saturday. All vets are cool with me I love them all, but I have a BIG HEART for any All American sister or brother.

It was my first the 82nd it took my cherry, cherry blast not a actual paratrooper until you jump with division, and you always have fond memories of your first time losing your virginity it may be in a bed, as awkward teenager with your high school sweetheart.

Or losing virginity with a airborne rifle company cherry blast, memories of riding in the sky in the belly of a bird we operate in the black of night .One of my most fondest maybe in division around 10 month standing looking out towards back of aircraft heat lightning, illuminating your brothers canopies in night sky feeling Excitement the fear anxiety adrenaline cuz In about 7 seconds itís gonna be me walking out the rear of this bird sticks in the wind.

To quote my plt sgt scream now embrace the adrenaline the rush. Cuz once weíre back on earth and operating quiet and stealth is the rule we talk in whispers another quote of his allís a paratrooper needs is a open door and piece of sky letís go to work men.

Ok apologies I ramble so that is why I love paratroopers. So we hit the creek we wade out to the islands drop out gear ,I show my 508th friend pointing. See those rocks thatís where we will be in planting our asses in few. It goes deep it is a gradual slope underwater from this point to the base of the dam.

So in explaining to my 82nd brother we got around 25 feet from this point and in front of us I restrict the boys to fifteen feet if your hung up with live bait or lure beyond that point break it, then no more cuz itís about eighteen feet in depth all way to base of the dam. So after fishing range safety briefing we hit it.

And we caught bass pickerel catfish a huge amount of pan fish crappies bluegill and sitting on the rocks with feet in stream. My new friend said thank you for bringing me this is so relaxing it is therapy.

Teb- I looked at my new friend and said donít be deceived there is nothing therapeutic about that 85 pound chocolate lab sitting between us. That dog is total chaos and mayhem.

I then showed him our A.O. grabbing my phone out waterproof bag on google maps. I said we cover rivers wading or boat lakes. Or streams or ponds in about a five county acreage. And your in now with the crew will show you a lot.

I then told him I get it bro you been war on terror from a 2nd LT to lite bird a lieutenant colonel so fishing is much better than killing. Next weekend weíre gonna go out fishing vessel Polish , I asked you want in he said you bet. Then I explained that FV Polish is 20 foot Jon boat I bought off dude that used it to guide duck hunts. And then I told him we have also 18 foot inflatable zodiac aluminum flooring, we put small outboard motor on it.

So you can choose which one of my two teenagers you wanna fish with in the polish fleet. And boog is my right paw he always goes along my friend. I said the boog is a career private constantly catching article 15ís company level to field grades ucmj. I said he has a huge 201 file.

2. Sounds like you and the boys have a new friend

How wonderful! Fishing is good but showing someone all the best places to fish is even better.

3. You always have to tell them first

That the dog is pampered because that makes him much more tender when we eat him.

5. I liked the first part of your post

Not so much the fishing part, but I have great memories of being packed like a sardine in the back of a Hercy Bird thundering through the night sky to a destination unknown, spotting the DZ hanging out the door then putting my stick out, then following them with my knees in the breeze 10-15 second carnival ride, dropping your ruck and 1950 case, PLF and securing a perimeter, then and long hump through the woods, swamp, mountains, desert or where ever they dropped us to a target.....good memories.
