The good folks at Roberts Retreat Lodge say that Google's directions to the cabin are wrong. So following these instead:
HERE ARE THE DRIVING DIRECTIONS:
Unfortunately, Google Maps and Mapquest do not take you to the correct location with the address. From wherever you are located, you can google "Vamoosa, OK" and the property is only 4 miles East from there, so this will give you an approximate driving time. So first look up directions to Vamoosa, OK and then follow these instructions ...
•Off Hwy 377/99, turn EAST onto EW1400 Rd - there is a black sign with white letters “Vamoosa Baptist Church” where you turn (this road is directly on the N side of the Vamoosa Cemetery)
•Continue straight past the church on your Right, through the 4-way stop, stay to the Right when the road V’s (by the mailboxes on the right), and continue past the “Dead End” sign
•Turn Right into the Roberts Retreat gate entrance
•Go for ¼ of a mile and make your FIRST LEFT
•Continue on this road and take your FIRST RIGHT (do NOT go through the RED gates)
•Go through the black gate and continue to the Lodge
Michael "Doc" Stephens has been added to the waiting list for OIL membership. Should a position open up, he's first in line. Doc Stephens spent the 2006 SECFOR mission with the 158 as head medic.
The first draft (the PFC) will begin at 1000 on September 4, 2016 at Roberts Retreat Lodge in Konawa, Oklahoma.

Ten years ago today, SGT Jeremy King was killed by a sniper in Baghdad. He was not a part of the 158 or the Oklahoma Army National Guard, but he was a brother-in-arms. On August 24, 2006, he was killed in an area close to where my squad went most days. Needless to say, it affected me. I was an audio witness that day and eventually wrote about his death in a piece titled "The Radio." I share it today to keep the memory of SGT King alive. I didn't know him, but he had brothers-in-arms, friends, family, a wife, and a daughter who all loved him very much. He deserves to be remembered. "The Radio" is reproduced after the jump.

Good news, folks. Back by popular demand, the folks at Rate My League will be previewing all three OIL conferences after their Labor Day weekend drafts. Here is what they had to say about the NFC and AFC last season.
For reference, Rate My League ranked the contenders in the NFC, in order, to be:
The team they hated the most was the Whackers, who did finish in last place in 2015.
In the AFC, they predicted the following teams would be playoff contenders, in no particular order:
The 2016 draft is growing near. I've been asked by a few guys about a schedule. This weekend is mostly to relax and catch up with your brothers-in-arms, so there won't be a tight schedule. The place has ATV trails (bring your own ATV), TVs with DirecTV, a ping-pong table, a private lake, a shooting range, a barbecue grill, a large wraparound deck, and a fire pit. I will be bringing horseshoes, corn hole, and jumbo Jenga. There is plenty to do without putting everyone on a schedule. The following is all the events that matter:
