Operation-Welcome Home.    The Lake Texoma area businesses and fishing guides are gathering for the free fishing event for our wounded and disabled soldiers, November 20, 2015.   Although I am still hobbling around, and depending mostly on others, it seems things can run quite well without me.  This is our fifth year, with the last four years, this community feeding, housing, feeding, a total of some 240+ soldiers from Ft Hood, Tinker AFB, Shepherd AFB, an Ft Sill.   The fishing guides donate their boats free, with area VFW, American Legion, and Elks, all lakeside, provided food and drinks at no cost to the soldiers.   The lodging is donated by LIttle Mineral Resort, with Tim already reserving the marina for that date.  The guides right now, Lil Mark Banister, John Britt, Mike Blakely, Steve French, Britt McKinney, Ed Fowler, Joe McMurtry, Mike Scott, Guy Martinez, Dan Hands, and Myself.   We still could use others if they wish to donate the time and their boat for this cause.  Donations from Mike and Evelyn Tennyson, and Tyson Foods, help us with some of the costs to do this, and we thank them as well as the guides for their donations.   Anyone wanting to donate to this cause, send a check to JD Dorsey, 305 Pecan Place Lane, Pottsboro, Texas 75076.   The Vietnam Veterans Association is always helping us with erecting flags around Little Mineral, as well as providing breakfast burritos, the morning of the fishing.  GeorgeTown Baptist, (Brother Bobby) and JB Morris, provide the barbque for the soldiers on the 21st.  We thank each and every one for their support.   I hope I did not leave anyone out, but I can assure you there is enough support out there, they wont let me mess things up.  The event is carried by The Heald Democrat, (Groom News) as well as all Television stations in the area.  There are a lot of other people behind the scenes and as I say hope I did not fail to mention someone, if I did, blame it on a senior moment.   Oh yes there are businesses, will name later, making up shirts and hats, at their costs, so I am so fortunate to have so many people and businesses coming forward to help, it makes my job easy.  Thanks everyone.......JD
