Tricounty News

Appreciation from a military reader

I'd like to request a subscription as Active Duty, please. I enjoy getting the home-town paper, and I would have done this sooner, but there's been a lot of stuff going on.

Korea was amazing and I could talk all day about it. Now, I'm stationed in Florida (the Panhandle-Eglin Air Force Base), and have been enjoying it. I sure miss my four seasons but the longer I stay here, the more and more I recognize the subtle seasonal changes. Most of my summers are spent at Black Water River cooling off in Florida's high temps. The rivers here (especially Black Water) are ankle-to-head deep with sandy bottoms and sandy banks. I think it's a Florida secret because you won't find tourists out at these river locations. I'm not complaining, though.

I do enjoy reading about home, though, and keeping up-to-date with what's happening-makes me feel like I'm still home in a way. So, I appreciate what you and the staff of Tri-County News do! Thank you

God bless,
