    I know I promised many of you that I would see you at the Iowa Deer Classic this year on Saturday.

    Well Friday afternoon my plans changed. My 26 year old daughter Cassie called and asked if I would pick her up at KCI Airport. She wanted to visit her step mother and me for a few days.

    Cassie is headed for Afghanistan in a few days and she wanted to spend some time with us. For me it was a no brainer, my family comes first.

    Cassie is a 2nd Lt. in the United States Army; she is an Apache Helicopter Pilot.

    We are very proud of her and her husband Justin for serving their country.
