Caldwell is an avid outdoorsman who shares his passion with his family . FORT KNOX , Ky . – First Team kids were catching fish , laughing , and enjoying the sunshine together with their families April 30 during a fishing derby at Fort Knox’s Camp Carlson Military Park . The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10281 , a 1st Theater Sustainment Command and Fort Knox community partner based out of Vine Grove , hosted the fishing derby , which was open to the entire community . Staff members from Fort Knox Morale , Welfare and Recreation worked together with the VFW and unit volunteers to make the event happen . The VFW members provided and cooked lunch . They also proclaimed every participant a winner . “All kids 15 and under received a fishing pole , tackle box and lures , ” said Pat Lechevalier , a VFW volunteer . “This is all for the kids , and every child is a winner , ” he added . As the longest lifetime member at the post , Lechevalier said that he was part of the original planning committee . “We have been hosting a fishing derby since 1995 , ” he said . This is the first year they hosted the installation’s fishing derby at Camp Carlson , but Lechevalier said that members want this to be the new location for the fishing derby in the future , partnering with MWR . Previous derbies were held at Nolan Lake State Park near Mammoth Cave , but they canceled the derby the past two years due to the COVID - 19 pandemic . Smaller than Nolan Lake , the 25 - acre , recently - stocked lake at Camp Carlson provided plenty of opportunity for some of the 250 participants to experience catching a fish – even if some fish didn’t meet requirements for keeping . Some of the fish caught included catfish , crappie , bluegill and bass . There were many first - time catches and some personal records met . However , it was the opportunity to bond as a family which brought out most Soldiers and their children to participate . Staff Sgt . Kierra Magee , material manager , 1st TSC , brought her 6 - year - old son , Jarin , fishing for the morning . “I came out to do something different and to make memories with my son , ” she said . Magee helped Jarin put the worms on the hook , but he cast the line . Capt . Koty Caldwell , operations officer , 1st TSC , brought out his entire family . “If it’s outside , we like to do it , ” the avid outdoorsman said . “I’ve been fishing for probably 26 years , ” Caldwell said . “I used to fish with my grandfather a lot . ” Now he shares his love of hiking , hunting and fishing with his three sons , Trevin , Blaine and Ezra . Maj . Sean Floeter , G - 37 training and exercise operations officer , 1st TSC , took his son , Robert , fishing , and he quickly caught a fish . Soldiers and family members from 1st TSC not only fished at the event , but they showed up to volunteer . 1st TSC volunteers registered participants , rigged rods , coached , taught , and hooked worms . First Team volunteer Sgt . 1st Class Bryan Brewer , operations sergeant , rigged more than 90 rods while he coached and taught many new anglers . Lt . Col . Brian Kibitlewski , commander , Special Troops Battalion , 1st TSC , volunteered with his wife Michelle and daughter Leah , 15 . Theresa Scott , family readiness support assistant , 1st TSC , also volunteered at the derby . She staffed the registration table and helped families with questions . “Today was an outstanding opportunity for Fort Knox , its installation partner VFW Post 10281 , and the surrounding community to share time together and get to know one another again on such a beautiful day , " Kibitlewski said . 1st TSC’s Sgt . 1st Class Ralph Boyd , G - 5 plans noncommissioned officer in charge , who staffed the station weighing and measuring catches , said that out of the 91 fish he weighed , the biggest catch of the day was a 2 . 18 - pound catfish . “It was so awesome hearing so many kids catch their first fish , ” Boyd said . “The Cabreras and the Floeters were extremely excited about their catches . ” Boyd said he enjoyed working with the VFW as they strive to give back to their community . “I truly enjoyed sharing the gift and fun that fishing brings , and I can ' t wait for next year!"
