    Way to Go Colby! You and our boys were so blessed to have Chief and Captain guide you, to prepare you for your careers in the Military! I do miss going to the Meets and inspections, and all the stories that the boys would tell about the parking details during the home games.
    Good luck in your next adventure in this thing called life!
