Last week, Todd flew to Pierre, SD, as a guest at the Joe Foss Institute and attended their annual pheasant hunt fundraiser. While meeting some great patriots from all across the country, Todd received a quick shooting pointer from Didi Foss, the wife of World War II fighter pilot, Medal of Honor recipient, and South Dakota hero, Joe Foss. Then he picked up critical “tactical field instruction” from General Walter Boomer, USMC (ret) and LTG Jerry Boykin, USA (ret), which I’m told dramatically improved his ability to stalk the feathered beasts.
The Joe Foss Institute’s mission is “to teach youth patriotism, integrity, public service and the significance of America’s freedoms.” The Institute makes an impact by using veterans to take its message into classrooms, assemblies, and now into year-round camps through its new partnerships with the Boy Scouts of America and the Salvation Army. You can learn more about this great organization by visiting their website at http://www.joefoss.com/ or following them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/joe.foss.institute.
And in other family news, Bristol continues to have a ball while stepping up and stepping out of her comfort zone on DWTS! She’s dancing again tonight, and you can keep track of her (and vote for her too!) and all the brave souls in this competition by visiting her Facebook page here.
