Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #207

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #207. Where has March gone so quickly? Blink and it's gone. It seems the workload gets heavier and the HFS train is full speed ahead into the summer of 2023. Training sites and training venues in KY and multiple stops coming up in NC. If you aren't paying attention, preparedness venues are popping up all over the nation in the next six months. Why? What does this tell you? We have our own version of woke except our folks are waking up to the reasoning to prepare. Does this include you?

By the time you read this I will be in Leburn, KY for the Kentucky Gun and Preparedness Expo being held on Saturday and Sunday. I'm looking forward to the event and being in Kentucky with some HFS family from KY and Virginia (that I'm aware of. If you are nearby come spend a day or two with like-minded preparers and stop by the HFS table and say hello. Better yet, come attend one of my three classes being taught. I'm hoping to have some biscuits and gravy with my Patriot brother from Monticello, KY during our time together.

It's another crazy week here and another one ahead. I get home from Kentucky on Sunday and head to Huntsville, AL on Monday for most of the week. I'm hoping to have the following weekend at home to work on garden stuff. I'm starting to feel like Gilligan must have felt like on the Island hoping to someday get home. But it's all good and I can't complain by any means. I am truly blessed. If you email me and don't get a reply back quickly I will get to you as soon as possible.

HFS was on the Cumberland Plateau last Sunday teaching Protecting Your Five Mile Radius class to about 105 like-minded Patriots. It was a great time to be together. I was thrilled to get some time with about 10 HFS members who traveled from different locations for the training and time to see one another. It is always great to see family. The class being taught was deep and task oriented and those who are holding on to their last Twinkie will likely not follow through with the steps needed to better protect and understand their local environment. It's just that simple. How bad do you want it? It? Personal safety and control of your community. I want to give out a big "thank you" to the organization who hosted the event and invited me back. At the conclusion of the class I got to have dinner with Festus and Mrs. Festus, and another HFS Patriot sister who joined us for training.

We are getting close!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, to those who donated to the 2023 donation drive already. Bless you and thank you so much. You are the fuel to keep the HFS mission rolling forward another year. We are three quarters of the way through March, and we have received about 85% of our needed goal for the year. Thanks again to those who already donated. Your generosity is much appreciated. It's not too late to donate and help us achieve our 100% goal for 2023. We hope you will consider doing as much.

Let us move along....
