Texas Has a New Instructor - Helaman!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great satisfaction that I present to you Project Appleseed's newest full red hat instructor - Helaman!

Helaman came out in cold (for Texas) and rainy weather to do just about every point of instruction there is at an event.  He even had the foresight to bribe encourage everyone by bringing a delicious breakfast pastry from a little shop that the shoot boss was previously unaware of  **)

In true Project Appleseed style, that orange hat should never be worn again and was therefore retired in style.  You know - I've never seen a hat fly off a backer into the air before? The shoot boss was very pleased to see the entire line wait until it was safely landed before continuing the retirement ceremony  :---

I think I speak for all of us when I say:

"Sad will be the day when the American people forget their traditions and their history, and no longer remember that the country they love, the institutions they cherish, and the freedom they hope to preserve, were born in the throes of armed resistance to tyranny and nursed in the rugged arms of fearless men"----Roger Sherman

Well done sir! Welcome to the Red Hat Cadre...
The right to freedom is the gift of God Almighty....The rights of the Colonists as Christians may be best understood by reading, and carefully studying the institutes of the great Lawgiver and head of the Christian Church: which are to be found clearly written and promuligated in the New Testament.
― Samuel Adams


Thanks for all the hard work that getting a RedHat requires. Much appreciated.

And way to make it happen, Texas  O0
"Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't." - Margaret Thatcher

You can have peace, or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once. - Robert A. Heinlein

It's not about perfection -- it's about progress!!

I LOVE this stuff!

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Ronald Reagan

Congratulations Helaman!!!!!

I could tell from my visit up to Waco for the event in May, you had the passion and persistency to become an Instructor.  The Texas Cadre is extremely lucky to have a person such as yourself amongst its rank!!!! 

Congratulations once again.  I look forward to working with you at a few future events.
