Last week I interviewed the amazing Candyss Bryant, the “younger sister” of all Rangers. Tune in and listen to her describe her relationship with the National Ranger Association, the Best Ranger Competition and the Ranger community at-large, and you will catch a sense of the “wonder” she still has about falling into the Ranger family.
She is also involved in the International Sniper Competition and the Leapfest Competition. Her “day” job is Coordinator at the Center for Community Based and Non-profit Organizations. Make sure you listen all the way through – the discussion at the end is just as interesting and important as the discussion at the beginning. If you want to know more about the Best Ranger Competition or any of the other events with which Candyss is involved, email or call her at 706-718-9520.
My buddy Mike Schlitz wrote this note today:
Mike, you are affecting lives in a positive way every day. You are the most inspirational person I know. I remember a few days ago when we were talking on the phone and I was stressing about insurance coverage for my company. You said “aw don’t worry, it’ll work out”. You’re absolutely right – it’s a mouse turd I’m worried about when you are handling mountains daily in an even stride. I thank God for you, and for being able to call you my friend.
Couple other items of interest: I stumbled upon this last week: Tom Brokaw did a piece on the Oprah show about The Bravest Families in America. Awesome. Law Professor and blogger Ann Althouse published this piece about Wisconsin protesters ignorantly disrespecting a war memorial in the state capital. Here’s one of the videos:
I am very pleased to announce a new relationship with Warrior Gateway. Warrior Gateway exists to organize and categorize Veteran services. My appreciation to the Warrior Gateway team for what they do and for helping us provide better information to our Veterans and their families. Also I must mention my most heartfelt thanks for the leadership and talents of Dr. Tracy Norris and the Norris E-Commerce team for donating their time, expertise and web storage for our website.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, come see us the week after next at the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach! We could use a couple Ranger veterans to help us work the booth – if you are in the AO and want to help, call me at 316-249-0218.
GallantFew continues to grow and serve more Ranger veterans. Support our mission! And in the words of Candyss: Love hard, work hard, play hard – do everything to the extreme!
