Sad? Yes. But it was very good.

Far more worrying, I think, is my father’s photo of me taking a photo of my meal. The world has truly gone stark, raving mad.

More than 65 people attended the Third Annual PHWFF Flyfest held at Harman’s North Fork Cottages in Cabins, W.Va., Dec. 6-8. The event was hosted by the PHWFF Fort Belvoir and PHWFF Quantico Programs and more than 35 Warriors and several family members from seven different PHWFF programs fished 1 ¾ miles of the private access trophy trout stream during the three-day weekend trip.

In attendance during the weekend were Volunteer Guides and Warriors from the two local programs in addition to members from programs in Martinsburg, West Va.; Richmond, Va.; Atlanta, Ga.; Winchester, Va.; and Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center, Richmond, Va. For 14 Warriors, it was the first time they had traveled to Harman’s. Also, three professional fly fishing guides/instructors attended and donated their time to the event.

The air temperatures never rose above the upper 30s and often included wind chills in the teens with heavy rain and snow during the weekend’s festivities.

Bigg Riggs Farm, owned by Calvin Riggleman, an Iraq Marine combat Veteran and small farmer from Loom, W. Va., provided all meals for the three-day event.

Friday and Saturday evenings included Warrior raffles for prizes donated by supporters from around the country. Additionally, three small businesses donated products through the two PHWFF programs’ relationships on social media.

Evenings were filled with various fly tying instruction at different cabins to include wet flies, soft hackle flies, streamers and clouser minnows. Volunteers and professional guides provided the free instruction.

The stream had been recently stocked by Harman’s with rainbow and brown trout, ranging in size from 17 to 20 inches. However, due to extremely heavy rains on Friday, Saturday’s fishing schedule was pushed back and instruction on fly casting and fly tying were held during the morning and early afternoon. Fishing was limited to “shore only” during the afternoon. Even though fishing was limited, Warriors caught fish.

Sunday morning, attendees woke to a winter storm and many left early in the day. Those who were able to stay fished from shore. Five Warriors decided to extend their stay to wait for the storm to pass so they could safely travel home. (photo Lally Laksbergs)

I don’t know her real name. I asked but I could not decipher it. So I call her Mama.

She invited me to her little street kitchen and fed me noodle soup, beer, her own fish soup and papaya. She spoke a few words of English and a few words of French so we had a nice conversation while I ate. She barked orders at (presumably) her family that made sure I had everything I needed.

This was one of the tastiest meals I’ve ever eaten out plus a very special one because of Mama’s friendliness and care. She tsk-tsk’d about the scrathes I had in my elbow, patted my tummy after I ate to make sure I was full and was simply a lovely person.

Sometimes travel is wonderful. Thanks, Mama!

Maj. Gen. Timothy P. Williams, the Adjutant General of Virginia, visits the 10th annual Virginia National Guard Youth Camp July 30, 2015, at Camp Pendleton in Virginia Beach, Va. The weeklong camp is presented by the Virginia National Guard Family Programs Office and offers the children of Virginia military members a wide variety of outdoor and indoor activities, as well as trips to Ocean Breeze Water Park, the Virginia Aquarium and Busch Gardens. After a full day of activities, campers conducted a flag folding ceremony prior to the evening meal, then took turns signing each others camp t-shirts. In addition to talking with campers, Williams also thanked the many adult and youth volunteers whose efforts make the camp possible. (Photo by Cotton Puryear, Virginia National Guard Public Affairs)

USO provides a hearty meal for free

CAMP HUMPHREYS – Every other Wednesday, from 11:30 a.m. until the food runs out, the United Services Organization, or USO, here provides a free program called “Lunchbox.”

This year, all USO free lunches are sponsored by the Exchange New Cars Sales and desserts are donated primarily by military spouses, like Michelle Sibinski, the wife of Chief Warrant Officer 2 Michael J. Sibinski, assigned to Company C, 302nd General Support Aviation Battalion. Michelle also works at the Camp Humphreys Commissary as a cashier.

“I have been in that situation when you don’t have anything and I just want to give back to my community what I have now,” she said. “This is a small community here, and pretty much everyone knows everybody, and, you know, doing these little things makes a big difference, especially, for those who are far away from home and family. Little closures like this help a lot and warm everybody’s heart.”

A group of volunteers led by Kap Brown, the USO duty manager, made all the preparations for the event and were serving a hearty meal for several dozen Soldiers.

“It is a lot of fun and it is very rewarding to give back,” said Rosie Majka, an Army wife who has been volunteering at the USO since last April.

The event has received very positive responses from Soldiers.

“I think it is a really great community outreach that USO is doing, and I know that the Soldiers definitely appreciate it,” said Staff Sgt. Brian R. Simon, assigned to 4-58th Airfield Operation Battalion.

The next USO Lunchbox is scheduled for Jan. 23. They will have hotdogs and desserts. For those who would like to donate something or have any questions, contact the USO at 753-6281.
