Default Firearm's Talk Adopt A Vet Program!!!

Ok folks lets do this. Bobby hasn't asked for it, neither has his uncle Jake. But dammit it just isn't right that a vet can't afford to buy himself a case of beer. So lets get together and get him some beer, or whatever else he wishes that will put a smile on his face. I'm in for a case of whatever uncle Jake wants. Who else is in?


Bobby, please pm or post the address to where this needs to go. And don't get all huffy about this, your old with high blood pressure and I'll kick your ass


JD NOTE: I HAVE CHANGED THE NAME TO ADOPT A VET AND WE WILL HAVE THIS STICKIED FOR ALL TO SEE FREQUENTLY. IF YOU HAVE A VET THAT NEEDS HELP, FIREARM'S TALK MOST EXCELLENT MEMBERS WILL BE THERE TO SAY THANKS!

Of fu**in course I am in for this Dog. Here is what we need Bobby.

A list of things that Uncle needs. Then ONE member takes ONE ITEM and sends it to him. That way he does not get bombarded by cases of beer and smokes. ( we want to help him, not send him into a drunken stupor)

Any thing he needs he will get by the members of FTT I am sure.

So we know that Beer (brands or brand unknown)
Smokes
Gift cards to stores AROUND that area

Anything else that I am forgetting?

You are now over your head Bobby and need to supply us VIA pm an address.


Does anyone else have a VET that needs some ITEMS if so post up gawddammit. Let us help.

I'm in for a case or a card or a carton or whatever. I seem to remember something about a "beer of the month" club, but i don't know if he would enjoy the variety more than his favorite. Does he enjoy reading; maybe some magazine or newspaper subscriptions to help pass the time (maybe some movies)? The Veteran certainly gave up some fun for us; he is owed.

Since this is going to take the co-operation of proud people, I would like to say this:

THIS IS NOT CHARITY, SO DON'T EVEN THINK IT IS, YOU STUBBORN GOATS

This is nothing more than a thanks that never tires of its meaning or heartfelt feelings. If you do not want to make this a public forum deal, then pm the members who are willing to just say 'thanks'.

I wish to say thanks in this way as well.

Default All right here we go.

Out of touch for the last two days. You dogs would dang near make this old man tear up. Almost. I had Joe Chapple, Charles Mabe, Troy lingerfelt, Frank Williams, Arthur Burcham (POW), Skeebo Bowers (Tanker, Hellcats mystery Div.) and I'm missing a couple all over at Jakes yesterday. All WWII Vets. Beers were hosted by old timers in honor of friends lost, the real heros still over there. Steaks, and chicken were grilled. They all had a set down on the porch cook out, and eating. War stories were swapped. Bar stories, and fights were spoke of. I was the cook, and made sure everybody had a ride and got home safe. Three were in the D-day invasion. Others in the Pacific. 8 hours of being young again. They all drink Budweiser (lordy) I had a beer or 12myself. Uncle Jake Smokes Pall Mall blues, I got him off the unfiltered Pall Malls. I told him in private about you Gentlemen, and your offers. He said if you wanted to buy him a beer or a pack of smokes, fine. Since many here are Vets also, it's good. I just tried to figure the easiest way. I will buy it for him, if you men want to chip in some fine. I will post you the receipts. Anything you do will be covered by a receipt. This is the only way I'll do it. If you want to mail a carton of Pall Mall blues. Fine. Shipping Beer Would be costly. I do think you need pics of Jake to put on here. This way you'll know him. How does this sound to all of you.

Now, if you guys have a Vet, or hero like mine that could use a little help. I'M IN. Well, crap I forgot the main thing. I called Randy Kegley, a local reporter, Landmark communications. He is doing a story on several D-Day, and Pacific Vets, who have been crapped on by the VA system, and forgotten. Also Congressman Rick Boucher (DEM) is wanting in for PR reasons I'm sure. But, I'll take his pull if it does any good. Let's just see what happens.
