From the NRA Show

Sharing a nice note from a family at the NRA Show this past weekend:

Captain Hawke, I wanted to thank you for the time you took to autograph my book and picture.

You proudly served our country and brought the world to life with your shows. My family has enjoyed watching you on Man Woman Wild and One Man Army. We have not missed a single episode. My boy and girl love to play Man Woman Wild at the house and on trips. You are a positive influence to so many people. Thank you so much for being a positive influence and a great role model. We will continue to follow you and hope to see you again on TV. It was a real honor to meet you.

Jim and Angela

Note From a Friend

The following note is from a friend I served with in Colombia, who is still out there doing the do, and from whom, a note like this means more to me than a medal:

Hey brother, where have all the years gone! I watched you and your fantastic wife's show every chance I could when I was in the Afghan—you both helped me escape and unwind with the great chemistry and instruction presented in the show. I bragged about you every chance I got. I'm happy for you and proud of you too, brother. You were doing that survival stuff way before it was exploited on the air waves!

Hope to see you soon and I wish nothing but the best for you and yours.

From the Mailbag

Sharing another nice note:

I don't have much use for TV these days , but your shows are the one thing I will make time to watch; my wife and I have learned so much from Ruth and your adventures and have been putting some of the skills to use as she is working with the forestry dept. in the Smoky mountains. I admire the patience you show as you teach Ruth the skills to survive, and how much care you show for her safety. You are truly a Man among men , and as a fellow soldier I understand where you get your character and ethics. It has been a great pleasure to follow your adventures, if only on the screen. I hope one day to have the opportunity to shake your hand.
