Naked Moleskin / COT:

YHC spoke about how his 2.0 was recently in town for the thanksgiving holiday and drove his vehicle and wasn’t use to the blind spots. Such is life – certain environments and situations put you in a position to see those “blind spots”. F3 has helped YHC to identify those areas and to “see” into the blind spots. Reach out to a brother. Someone you haven’t seen in awhile. Invite them back out. Better yet go and pick them up. You’ll both be better because of it!

F3 Christmas Party is this Saturday! Check out Slack for more deets!

Continued prayers for SOC, LIFO’s recovery, and others on IR.

Honored & Privileged,

Peace Out — Pyro!
