Title: Welcome Tennessee's Newest Orange Hat-Sgt-at-Arms
Post by: Tennessee Beast on March 19, 2019, 11:38:06 AM
Please join me in welcoming Sgt-at-Arms as Tennessee's newest orange hat.  Pirtle earned his Rifleman's patch last week at the RBC in Ramseur, NC (Ramseur 3-19) and requested an orange hat immediately.  This man has a passion for Appleseed and I am very pleased that I was there to witness his transformation from Applecore to Instructor-in-Training.

Quick story from last week:

I was working the line the day that Sarge earned his Rifleman badge - may have even graded his target as well.  What impressed me was later that evening, instead of enjoying the comraderie of his fellow patriots around the fire, he was tending to the fire in his belly - off to the side, furiously studying the instructor manual, learning those things required of a Instructor-in-Training, with the end goal of getting AS kickstarted in his area.

The missus and I pass through your neck of the woods a couple times a year.  I see our paths crossing again in the near future, and look forward to when that happens.

Sarge, thanks for answering the call to step and and walk the trail with us.

All the Best,
Monkey

Congratulations Pirtle! I knew when you took a blue hat in Canton that it wouldn’t be long until it changed to orange!

Thank you everyone, for your time on the line, for stepping up yourselves and being part of the process, and being part of the journey. Thank you to an awesome Cadre there in Ramsuer. Looking forward to seeing everyone out on the Trail.
