Price for Freedom

Today I had to do one of the things that I think most of us hate to do. I attended a funeral of a young man called Daniel Olsen he was 20 yrs old and a soldier and last week was killed in Iraq.

This was my cousins youngest and only son. This was a choice that he made to defend our country for our feedom.

The support of all the freinds and relitives, along with complete strangers is over welming to say the least.

The honor that is shown by the Marines for one of their own is unbeliveable and heart wrenching.

I would like to say thank you to all the men and women of our armed forces for what you do for my freedom that I have in this great country.

to the Olsen family our prayers are for you.

Daniel you will be in our thoughts and memories always.

My prayers and sympathy go out to his family. My oldest will be entering the Marine Corps this year and it weighs heavily on my mind. God Bless them all. They have made the ultimate sacrifice. I will smoke a pipe in Daniel's honor. I am humbled by his sacrifice.

I can not express my gratitude and admiration for the heros that fight and have given their lives for us. I have 6 friends from high school that are serving our country in Iraq. They, and all the others, are more brave than I could ever hope to be. I pray for them daily and I will pray for all the families that have lost heros such as yours. God bless and keep.

today was the burial part of the funeral and I can't begin to say thank you enough to all the people that attended and the familt was so overwelmed by the amont of people that did not know Daniel.

I have never been to a milatary burial before and all I can say is what an honor to have been related to this young man.

This is something I wrote for the family along with all the other familys that have lost a solider.

Todat we lay a soldier in the ground

As we listened 21 guns did sound

We think with our minds and wonder why

Our hearts are filled with saddness and begin to cry

This a celebration of a life he shared

That showed to us that all had cared

While his life was short here on earth

He brought joy and laughter ever since birth

Complete sacrfice is what he gave

Hopefully knowing how may lives were saved

The Gates of Heaven are open and the trumpets will sound

Because today we lay a soldier in the ground

thank you to all for your prayers

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
