    I think it's time to find out which members here who have served or are currently in the military, and are first responders or work directly with in any capacity. I didn't mean to put the Nat'l Guard at the bottom of this poll. A lot of Guard/Reservists have sacrificed a lot, even their lives. I'd join now if they would let me. :oldglory:

    Maybe a AK hunt is in order in the future when you get back. There are a couple of other folks here who dig that. There is a bush pilot here too. Would be cool to get a few here on a group hunt to AK, or fish. Salmon fishing would be considerably cheaper. Out of state licenses in AK add up fast $$$.

    I forgot to list any volunteers. In rural areas, (like where I lived in Oregon) it's not unusual to have volunteers to comprise pretty much every 1st responder roles in fighting fires , driving the only ambulance in town, etc. Please feel free to comment on what your role is even though it may not be listed on the poll. Thanks for your service ahead of time!! :oldglory:
