Hi Grit,

I have something here that some of your retired Marines might like, if they like to fish. It’s a Kiwi Kayak named the “Angler”. I got it three years ago and fixed it up to be my “Marine Fishing Machine”. My Explorer, being my transporter, also plays the “Marine Corps Hymn” at my command. It only weights 65# – being 73 years of age – I can handle it by myself with no problems. The trolling motor give you 40# of thrust on a fully charged battery. I really recommend this to all Marines Active and Retired.

Memorial Bike

Our son Sgt. Jeremy Murray – USMC while on his third tour in Iraq, was killed by an IED that went off under his humvee. ( Megan) our daughter-in-law took us to the Harley dealer and bought us this 2006 classic . she said Jeremy told her to do something for us if anything ever should happen. We found a local artist , and he hand painted this memorial on the fairing we might have him do more paint work in the future, (not sure) We have joined Rolling Thunder, Akron Chapter 2 and took our bike to DC this last Memorial Day, we also have joined the Patriot Guard Riders, the group that attends any Service persons funeral in honor and respect for them and their families. We are very supportive of our military and have a great deal of respect for all they sacrifice , to protect our country.
