In Honor of Army Master Sgt. George A Fernandez

This long paddle is dedicated to Army Master Sgt. George A. Fernandez, HHC USASOC, who lost his life in Iraq in 2003. This paddle was a 14.6 mile paddle completed in 3 hours and 30 minutes. The track I took can be seen on (Find me on SPOT ) on the blog. The wind was out of the NE 10-15 knots which made for a tough paddle. Master Sgt Fernandez left behind a family that included a wife, a daughter and a son. A donation to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation will help provide a college education to his two kids.
