Warriors on the Water Military Appreciation Bass Fishing Tournament has named this years “Big Bass” Memorial Award in honor of SrA Mark A. Forester. Walt Gulledge won the tournament with a 7.7 lb bass.
We have two of Mark’s biggest fish he caught hanging on the wall, one weighing in at 10 lbs, 4 oz, and the other at 6 lbs, 10 oz. I’m sure he would have loved to fish this tournament.

Picture below is a close up of the award.
This 2011 kickoff video is very good too.
