I was issued the ALS Ice Water Challenge from Fort Bragg in North Carolina by SFC Erik Klinger. Today, I fulfilled the challenge and issued a few of my own.

First, let me start by saying that I have the utmost respect for Sergeant First Class, Erik Klinger. The man has been on more deployments than you can count on one hand and the level of respect I have for SFC Klinger is powerful.

Plus, he's a highly trained Airborne Ranger who could probably snap my neck with one glance so I need to make sure "we';re good" and the jokes were all in good fun.

Right? Erik?

Author's Note: I made sure to run all the warm water out of the hose. It was running pure, ice cold Colorado water for the challenge.
