    About 6 weeks ago I got an office email which asked for donations for the soldiers returning from combat duty. I work on Ft Stewart which is the home of the 3rd Infantry Division - and we deploy a lot of troops. These donations were needed to provide the returning single soldiers with "Welcome Home" bags containing a selection of items they'd need when the get back to their empty barracks rooms. Things like toiletries, snacks, and other necessities. I began a fundraiser among supporting members and we collected just under $1000 for this worthwhile endeavor.

    Canebrake also had some very nice FTF business cards printed up and these will be included in the gift bags we funded.

    Today I was able to present the check to the Post Sgt Major on behalf of the men & women of FireArmsTalk and we received this certificate of appreciation. I'm proud of all of you that donated to this worthy cause...

    That's pretty cool..What a nice gesture on their part.

    I've always thought it spoke volumes about people be looking at what they didn't have to do but did it anyway. Itr shows a lot about the people here at FTF and the base personnel to giving a token of their appreciation as well.

    Along with our donation, a Florida American Legoin post sent 5 members up to visit us with their donation. I had a tough time myself with allergies today as having lunch with combat veterans from WWII, Korea, and Vietnam was indeed an honor.

    I'd also like to report that Ft Stewart met their goals and EVERY returning soldier will get a welcome home package...

    That is just really cool all around. I am jealous that Dave had such a great lunch time experience, but I am overjoyed that our forum was able to help contribute to some much needed welcome home gifts to all those returning heros!

    Well done folks! Well done indeed.
