Learned a lot of things on my first go around on growing. And looking forward too the next time. I started theses outdoors and had to bring in due to starting later than should have. So I did my best to make the proper environment in my house which was very hard. But for what it was I can’t be mad. I’m working on getting the proper equipment now to start a indoor grow tent because I’m hooked and really enjoyed taking care of these beautiful plants. It Really helped me keep my mind focused on what I was doing and helping me not let the sound of my own wheels drive me crazy. So until next time, thank you to everyone that has given me a follow and to the ones that have also given advice. It was greatly appreciated! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #growyourown#vetsforcannabis#veteran#combatvet_grower420#fuckptsd#gojipupil#marijuana#flower#bud#cultivateordie .
When I started Patriotic AF in 2016, my goal was never to just become another Veteran Owned T-Shirt Company. I wanted to create a community of passionate people who have one common attribute - the desire to maximize their potential and help other Veterans & Civil Service do the same.

Dad and I spent the day volunteering washing 300+ crosses. We were helping prepare for the Field of Crosses along Memorial Drive.
They host a wonderful Sunrise and Sunset ceremony from November 1-11. There is a cross for every southern Albertan veteran that has served our country.

I can’t believe it’s been 8 years since he came home from Afghanistan. I’ll never forget the sigh of relief when I saw the white buses pull up. I said “he’s home. He’s safe.” I was so grateful to have him home, and so glad he’s been home ever since. 20 years old, and we had been married for two years and soon after that we’d become parents for the first time. ❤️🎗 #infantryman#marines
On June 22, 2019, BZO published a post recognizing the heroism of Lance Corporal Brady Gustafson. With the help of two Marines who were there that day, we have a new story coming to BZO this Saturday 10/19, describing in more detail the ambush from their point of view. Stay tuned for more!
For those who missed it, here is the original post:
Lance Corporal Brady A. Gustafson fought off nearly 100 Taliban fighters from the turret of an MRAP… after his leg was blown off.
In July 2008, the 21 year old Marine manned his M240B in the MRAP turret. The vehicle took point of a column patrolling through Shewan, Afghanistan. Suddenly, a complex ambush hit the column from all around, initiated by an RPG aimed at Gustafson’s MRAP. The RPG penetrated the vehicle’s hull and detonating inside. Flames shot up through the turret, searing his face. He stood to take aim at the surrounding muzzle flashes, but his right leg buckled beneath him. Gustafson looked down and found his leg mangled beyond recognition, with bone exposed and his booted foot dangling by a shred of muscle.
Despite the injury, Gustafson resumed shooting all around. As he fired, a Marine inside the MRAP applied a tourniquet to his leg. Gustafson finished a 200 round belt, loaded another, and returned to his war. An RPG struck the vehicle behind Gustafson, bursting it into flames. He shouted to the driver of the MRAP, who had just regained consciousness, to reverse direction. They pushed the flaming vehicle backward out of the kill zone, allowing the occupants to safely exit. Gustafson blew through another 200 rounds and reloaded once more before finally relenting to medical treatment. His fearless resolve and courageous initiative saved the column from destruction, and ensured not a single Marine was lost that day.
For his actions, Gustafson received the Navy Cross. He left the Marine Corps the following year as a Corporal.
