Iowa has a new Red and Orange Hat!
« on: November 03, 2021, 07:39:10 PM »
Chris aka Appleseed Dad earned his Red Hat last weekend in Winterset! He was ridden like a rented mule during the shoot. He even got a curveball at 11 AM on Sunday finding out he was presenting KD during lunch. He was line boss at the time and he had never made that presentation. He did a great job.

Seth aka The Dawdler, Chris's son also stepped up and accepted his orange hat.

Liberty and Appleseed run deep in that family there are now 1 instructor and 6 IITs under one roof.

"The family that Appleseeds together, stays together."

Ok, that doesn't rhyme... but it doesn't matter.
Huzzah! Job well done to the whole family.

Congratulation Chris on earning full instructor status!  And great job recruiting your own set of six orange hats!  That's actually really cool and special.  And congrats to Seth on taking an orange hat.  Welcome aboard!

Congratulations and Huzzah!

In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

"[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…"
- Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer
