Active duty military- Tellico users
This has been troubling me, though I'd share.
When I started wheeling Tellico I was active duty military (early 90's). I still wheel with military buddies on occasion and see military guys on the trail often, at least until a few years ago. Obviously the current pace of deployments has made it nearly impossible for those defending or freedoms to enjoy Tellico or any trails for that matter. I know over the years I have seen many more military wheelers than minnow trout fisherman in Tellico.
The very individuals that are fighting, being shot at and killed for this country are being deprived of a voice in this fight and it pisses me off!!!!!!
I brought this issue up in my letter to the F.S. and I hope they are reminded frequently of this fact.
This just adds fuel to my personal resolve to help our cause.
Pens and Paper for peace, help our troops win hearts and minds! -
