Michigan has a new Red Hat!
« on: October 26, 2016, 11:52:46 AM »
At Watervliet, on Oct. 15-16, D.S.S. threw himself under the bus with gusto!  He gave not one, but TWO strikes to complete his PC4 as well as passing his PCI with flying colors! 

I've worked with D.S.S. a number of times and he has been a rock at every shoot, taking care of students and instructors, working on the line, always volunteering to do whatever needs to be done.   It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with him again and see him move into a good looking red hat.  (Not to mention a memorable decommissioning ceremony for his orange hat!)

Huzzah, and congratulations!  Thank you for taking on a bigger bucket!

Please join me in congratulating D.S.S.!

Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

Great Job, DSS!
Can't we all just agree to disagree in a civil fashion while the planet's last, fading hope of liberty and prosperity gets snuffed out?

No. We can't.
