While fitting the "shameless self promotion" file,
, I give this thread THUMBS UP!
The Supporting Members of this forum ( $15 per year with access to several private sections ) are some of the most generous, kind, intelligent and willing to sacrifice of ANY people I have met in all my travels.
Different States? Check. Different Countries? Check. Tons of different opinions and MILES apart on beliefs? Check times 10!
The folks here are GOOD PEOPLE! They care about fellow members, they care about our country and they care about our future.
Recently a fellow Supporting Member brought to the attention of the S/M's that he worked on a base where a military combat unit from Iraq was coming home for the first time in over a year. Several of the members did not have family in the area, and the MWR office that usually provides a welcome home kit was WOEFULLY underfunded. The base commander had asked for help.
FTF Members responded to this call for help by contributing almost $1,000 dollars to the FTF Adopt a Platoon program!
I would give money, blood, plasma and the shirt off my back to our Supporting Members. Time and again someone will come with an idea, or a problem, and these members will step up, without being asked, and try to help, add support and just plain show that the poster is NOT alone in this cold, cruel world.
If you are thinking of becoming a Supporting Member, I would encourage you to do it and see what goes on behind the scenes.
And don't worry, we keep a lease on cpttango30, somewhat, behind the scenes.
