Georgia's newest Senior Instructor
« on: June 13, 2014, 11:09:51 AM »
It is with great pleasure that I announce the official promotion of Georgia's newest Senior Instructor, Ramblin' Wreck. As everyone knows, the SI program had been suspended for a while and was only re-instituted this spring. The requirements are most demanding, but I am pleased to relate that Ramblin' Wreck had already met, and even exceeded, all the requirements before their official announcement. Heartiest congratulations, and deepest appreciation for your outstanding service to Appleseed and to our dear country. May Liberty increase forever!

Many know that Ben is one of my BEST FRIENDS and my mentor in the program.  I would not be involved with Project Appleseed had he not taken the initiative to "Seventh Step" me and for that I owe him a debt I can never repay.

Ben, you are a High Son of Liberty and I'm PROUD to be known as one of "your guys".

NOW GET BACK TO WORK!!!  ~~:)

Excellent to hear; I certainly appreciate all the effort and time Ben puts into this program.  Congratulations!

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.�

Thanks guys. It has been my privilige to work with the finest instructors in the country from whom I've learned a lot and who have turned into my best friends. A big thank you to my mentor Dr John for putting up with me as he dragged me around Georgia for nearly a year.  ;D

Please consider coming out to the KD at the end of September in Elberton and another one I'm about to schedule in Pelham, TN on Nov 1-2. We'll be doing something a  little differently and planning a "TOP SHOT" Appleseed contest for the last day. Focus will be extensive range estimation training and on firmly establishing come-up data extensively before we shoot the first AQT. I don't care if you shoot off a bipod all day as long as you hear some history. Hoever, you can only get a rifleman patch one way, by shooting like a Rifleman, unsupported.  I'll post the COF by the end of August so you can see if you're interested.

For Liberty,

"Wreck
