Looks great as always, had a drill Sargent in79 while in boot camp that had been in Nam, thunderstorm popped up out of no where, first time I ever seen somebody that suffered with it, broke my heart to see it, anybody that sez its not a real deal hasn't any common sense imo.
Thanks Mike and thank you for your service

Happy Independence Day to the Americans and good evening non Americans. Bittersweet holiday for me. I'm a combat vet and love America but with severe PTSD I cower to fireworks. Hate them. I got out of Army in 2008 and haven't shot fireworks with my 4 kids since. So 2 sons and one daughter are at friends tonight so they can get their freedom on. Oldest daughter is a loyalist and won't leave dad to suffer alone. She's my favorite. So just me, wife and Shelby today. We had Monterey chicken, smoked bourbon pecan pies and loaded tater salad. I'll start with the pies.

Wife made these up and I smoked them at 350 for an hour using pecan

Once chicken hot 155 IT I put 2 in each cast iron pan and added half cup each of Puckett's spicy BBQ sauce in each skillet( it's a local restaurant in Nashville)

Let that go till they hit 165. I gtated fresh Monterey Jack and sharp cheddar. 4oz each. Cooked 10 slices of thick cut apple wood bacon and cut up some green onions. Took them off and added cheese and bacon and back on the grill to melt

Was a delicious meal. Now I'm off to drink until my hearing doesn't work
I retired in 2012 and have PTS as well. Didnt know I had it until I was home on R&R and I was crawling around on the floor in my bedroom frantically searching for my weapon. I awoke to find my wife peering over the edge of the bed with a worried look. I was terribly embarassed. Anyway, my oldest daughter is named Shelby as well and is also fiercely loyal. Chow looks awesome, God speed brother.

Thanks bud and thank you for your service. Tough sometimes. Sounds like we both have good families. Makes it all worth it
