Anoka River Run Grand Finale

What a gorgeous day God provided for us late in September in Minnesota!!

The first attempt at the Anoka River Run Grand Finale was a success with an unofficial count of over 2,000 cars showing up.

As part of the tribute to our military we had representatives from the Marines and Army National Guard present, as well as a WWII Jeep from Crystal Military Museum. We also had the opportunity to show pictures and give out information on the Veteran’s Lake Memorial to Minnesota Service members lost in the war on terror.

Veteran’s Lake Park Monument Dedication

What a privilege and honor it has been the past 2 months displaying with and helping raise awareness of the memorial for the fallen Minnesota soldiers in the war on terror.

On September 2nd the dedication of the monument at Veteran’s Lake Park in Ramsey, MN was a day I will always remember. The personal meetings with the families of these fallen heroes, as well as many other God-fearing patriotic Americans, were incredibly humbling and inspirational. These soldiers and their families have given the ultimate sacrifice, as well as countless others since the founding of this country to insure that all of us can continue to enjoy the freedom that is the foundation of the United States of America, the greatest nation in the history of the world.

God Bless all who have served through the history of America!

Ahlman’s Shooters Roundup

What a wonderful two days we had at Ahlman’s shooter’s roundup, August 25th and 26th. It is always encouraging to be around so many God-fearing, second-amendment supporting, patriotic citizens. I hope we can do this again next year. Check out Ahlman’s.com

I usually crush cars, but today I had the opportunity to destroy a car in a different way: with a .30 caliber machine gun!

Wings of the North Air expo

Well, it has to happen once in a while, 2 days of almost non-stop rain, nonetheless those who braved the weather got to see and talk to some very important parts of our history at the Wings of the North Air expo. What an opportunity it was to see old war planes and talk to past and current members of our military.

Blaine’s Blazin’ 4th, “Honor to the Blue Star and Gold Star Mothers”

On July 4th, 2007 I had the honor of displaying alongside of the monument dedicated to the Minnesota service members who have given their lives in the global war on terrorism. This was one of the most humbling and yet inspirational days of my life. Meeting with the families of these fallen heroes as well as other current and past military members was a privilege to remember. I am trying to schedule as many displays with the monument around the state in the coming weeks as possible at this short notice. Please check schedule for dates and locations.

Hidden Padre Productions

In 2005, I met Miguel Campbell of Hidden Padre Productions, and we quickly became close friends. Miguel was interested in covering events that I was doing and working on a documentary of USA-1’s history and new mission. This is a very exciting venture and we hope to have it done this year. You can find a brief video on Miguel’s website from an outreach event, car show, that we did in August of 2005 at Maranatha Church in Forest Lake, MN. Visit his website at www.hiddenpadrepro.com
