It will be a great honor to represent the Army Bass Anglers, the best all-military fishing organization in the world . Thank you to my wife Kasey, and my kids Drake and Saige for their help and support . Also thanks to all of my friends and family, and people I don’t even know, who helped spread the word of our mission by sharing on Facebook, through email, and by word of mouth, and for those who made monetary donations to help support our Mission  –  Neil Carret
