A small surprise party was organized for Gage Hume of Wellington Saturday afternoon on Oberlin Road in Amherst. Hume has been a contributor and friend to TMCNEWS.NET for the last two years. Friends wanted to give Gage a special send off as he prepares to begin his Army basic training next week.

Justin Willis, who organized the party, said the afternoon party was meant to allow his friends to spend a few hours with Gage before he leaves for the military. “Gage is just such a great friend and this is away for us to all be together for a couple hours before he leaves, we all wish him well and pray that he will be safe.”

Hume said that his joining the Army was not an easy decision but it was one of the most important he has ever made in his life – “I’m not sure I will face a more important decision in my life and as difficult as it was it always leaning in favor of joining. To me it is a calling; it’s a duty that I have to do – to serve my Country. Nothing, right now, is more important then that and I’m proud to serve.”

To Gage, and all like him who are putting their lives on hold and in harms way to serve our Country, I say Be Safe, Be Well and most importantly, Thank You!

Gage, good luck! Joining the Army will be one of the best things you will ever do. It will teach you pride, honor, respect and give you a feeling of acomplishment like you have never felt before. Take it from a fellow Army vet, you will not regret it!! Airborne! Haas

Thank you Gage for answering the call - so many before you have provided us all so much - and you will help defend their efforts in protecting us all in the future. My son is in his first year in the Marine Corp - and I know that your family and friends will miss you while are away you as we do Matt, but they will share some of the same pride as you feel. May God Bless America and ALL who defend her.
