Due to Etcha-sketch’s sidelining injury, YHC was drafted for service.  Seeing the recent Virginia madness concerning our historical monuments, I decided to take us on a little Monument Tour of #Rivertown! The #MainEffort was to visit all of our monuments and honor those #HIM that sacrificed greatly for those monuments! We used the dates of the war to dictate the number of reps! See below.

It’s great to see this AO’s numbers are improving, and there were two HATE HATES in the tribe…and one was an FNG! Way to go #GRUNT! Makes a guy climbing north of 40 feel good to see some young men chasing their best self and getting better early in their life.

5:14 One Minute warning… Saved by the Bell’s notice to run to the circle!

5:15 The DISCLAIMER was given, and encouraged the FNG to ask questions

Studying for those war dates gave me flashbacks of school history homework! I recently visited Boston and Washington DC this summer, and I am always impressed with artwork and design of our America institutions and monuments. It would be a waste and travesty to have them defaced or damaged. America has lost a lot of fine men fighting for freedoms that we all enjoy. As a nation, we were finding our way… making mistakes… and we continue to fight for the best version of democracy history has ever witnessed. We can’t change our past nor our country’s history. These memorials are more than shrines of the person on display. They also represent the struggle of our country to fight for freedom for every man.
If they really want to make a difference, they should use their energy to help our fellowman, and follow Jesus’ command to love thy neighbor. That’s why YHC is thankful for #F3 because it is free to all men and you will get better by the men you sweat with.

As always its an honor to lead,

PS: Good luck to all of our teachers for a productive year!
