Memorial Day

May 31, 2010

– Today is Memorial day, and I feel it is extremely important to take some time and thank those who have served, and those who are currently serving to protect the freedoms that we all enjoy. They come from every corner of our country, and Aroostook County has it’s fair share of war heroes, past and present.

Brad Plourde is an active duty soldier currently serving in the mountains of Afghanistan. You might remember Brad from his many Muskie fishing pictures that have been featured on the site. An avid outdoorsman and Master Maine Guide, Brad is the oldest of four brothers; all of whom are avid Muskie fisherman. On this Memorial day I and the rest of the Up’North crew would like to thank brother Brad, and all those who have put themselves in harms way so we can continue to cast a line without a care in the world. It takes a special kind of person to make such an honorable contribution, and we can all be proud that people like Brad call Fort Kent home.

Your contributions will never be forgotten, and we all pray for your safe return. Up’North salutes the courage of our American Soldiers, and can’t wait to see Brad back on the water again!

Stay safe, and keep fighting the good fight!
