The “Colonel’s” Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day & Week!

Good “R.E.D Friday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse,” and all great connections. Welcome to the end of another great week from the “Eagle’s Nest” in Costa Rica! — 27 August 2021!

**Day 6 Costa Rica – “Pura Vida” Yesterday was an awesome day for “Whale Watching” on the Pacific Ocean. We got to see a mother and baby whale for about 45 minutes. It was tough getting videos and pictures, but we did capture some. COVID-19 Testing all done and we’re good to head back to the Land of the Big PX once again. Great later afternoon lunch with one the local guests (a ‘White Face Monkey’ - Capuchin Monkey is the official name)! – Today we head back up the coast toward San Jose, Costa Rica and to our hotel, so we can get ready to fly out Saturday morning.**

Let’s “Remember Everyone Deployed” until they return home safely once again. Let’s say a prayer for the 12 Marines and Navy Medic who were killed yesterday!

We have (18) weeks and (127) days until 2022!

Today’s Message is: “Whale Day!” Why Not?

“Whales adapt to changing conditions and operate based on learned behaviors. They work as a fine tuned unit when hunting. Sharks are very solitary, they don’t plan, and they hunt on instinct. Do you lead like a shark or a whale?” —COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

There will be no Warriors for Life (WFL) this Saturday evening since we’ll be in the air heading back to the “Eagle’s Nest” in The Woodlands, TX
