    Howdy-

    I want to thank you for having our son-in-law, RJ Eppers, President of the Professional Armed Forces Rodeo Association as your guest on episode 61. RJ is married to our youngest daughter, Emily, they have a daughter, Kalila, and Emily is due to have their second daughter in September.

    I managed a retail western wear store in Northwestern Montana, and was sent by my DM to the store in Alaska where RJ came to work for me as a second job. Ultimately, RJ and Emily met, as she worked at one time as my Assistant Manager.

    Unfortunately, the corporate big-wigs decided to merge with another company, and in a couple short years the company was bankrupt, and shut down all operations. Yep, we moved back to the states!

    Both my wife and I were raised on ranches, grew up around rodeo and horses, we ranched after we were married for a bit, and are very glad to see the tradition is still in the family!

    We are very proud of RJ and his growing family, have watched RJ ride bulls in Alaska and South Dakota. Now, Emily and RJ have gotten Kali into mutton busting! We really want to see her do that!

    All three of our daughters are married to military guys, two in the Air Force, and one in the Army. All of the boys have been deployed at least once, overseas. We are, again, very proud of them, and of all of our brave men and women in uniform! May God truly bless America!!!

    Thanks for what you do,

    Doug and Bev Lynch
