Honor in the Air

Remembering Army Captain Scott Robinson Alwin

Pamela Fullerton and Susan Reetz attended the Wausau American Legion Post 10 meeting at Bunkers on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.  Pamela spoke about their documentary film project featuring her brother Army Captain Scott Robinson Alwin a highly decorated Wisconsin Vietnam war helicopter pilot.

Pamela is the Associate Producer of the documentary and has a long career as an educator, attorney and award-winning author.  Susan is the Writer, Director and Producer of the documentary. She is the owner and Chief Creative at Clear Focus Media, LLC in Weston.

Scott served five tours of duty during the Vietnam war and received over 136 air medals including a Purple Heart for his bravery. Scott survived two helicopter crashes during his service in Vietnam only to be killed by a suicidal driver while on his way from his home in Wisconsin to the U.S. Army War College. To those who knew him, his legacy lives on.

For more information about the project, please contact Susan Reetz at Susan@ClearFocus.Media.

As We Start to Open!!!!

 
As we start to open up...You do You, I'll do me.
That's what America's about.
None of us have the same circumstances (high risk children/family member
or a business not doing so well, etc.).
Let's all stay in our own lanes and keep the judgment down as we begin to reopen.
No one should feel pressured either way.
 
As governors are trying to figure out how to ease back into normal, please remember:
 
Some people don’t agree with the state opening...that’s okay.
Some people are still planning to stay home...that’s okay.
Some are still afraid of getting the virus...that’s okay.
Some are relieved to go back to work
knowing they may not lose their business or home...that’s okay.
Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off...that’s okay.
Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job...that’s okay.
Some will wear masks for weeks...that’s okay.
Some people will go out to get their hair or nails done...that’s okay.
The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay.
 
We each have a different story.
If you need to stay home, stay home.
If you need to go out, just respect others when in public.
Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story.
We all think differently than we did months ago.
So, remember, Be Kind.
