A Veterans Day NFL Assignment – Day 171

Day 171
Listening to:  <whispers>  Christmas music
Thought for the day: When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep? -George Canning

REMINDER!  DON’T FORGET!  This is what I am doing tomorrow.  I am helping to honor my neighborhood’s veterans.

Since the Old Hickory Veterans Day ceremony will consume Titans viewing time, my Make Kris a Fan coach, Sabrina Kronk, gave me an assignment this week that would not take me away from my training.  She instructed me to research NFL athletes who have served in the military.   I think she forgot my very own coach for Football 101, Collin Mooney #42………..make that 1st Lt. Collin Mooney, C Battery, 1st Battalion, 78th Field Artillery.  I had no idea who he was when he threw me my first touchdown pass.   Now I feel honored.   He said when he left West Point that the NFL was not his end goal. His grandfather had influenced him to be an officer and that was his initial goal.  Alas, in 2012, the Titans signed him.  I look forward to seeing where his career takes him.   He definitely holds a special place in my new Titans fan heart!
