Kelly grew up in Africa with his dad who was a hunting guide he knew his way around the bush. Now he is some Fed. Marshall or something?
I saw him at the reunion a few years back and told him I ditched his shotgun. Holy sheet I thought he was going to cave my head in.
Damn like calm down dude.
God Bless Americas Veterans. All who are serving and have served.
