    Myself and @Mac11FA came up with 200 dollars so far to help rent a cabin for a Vet who has terminal Cancer. I am selling FJ`s Ruger at the moment, and their anniversary is coming up April 7th. Total rental is about 450.00.

    If anyone is interested in helping out, PM me. I will have a drawing at the close of this for someone to win 1000 rounds of 22. Will keep open till MArch 30th. Any extra monies left over, we will get them a kroger card for groceries and such to help out on that end.

    Thanks to all who have helped in the past for those in need.

    Eric

    Thanks for doing this Eric. You and I talked about this and would love to see this community get involved and helping out Vets with needs and support. It does not always have to be a monetary gift but could be as simple as pledging some of your time to help out with a project or giving someone a ride. @dougiemac we would love your input on this as well.

    I cannot think of a better way to help out military brothers out and thank them for their service and fighting for our freedom. There are many of those who made great sacrifices and who are being screwed over by the VA to a point where they cannot enjoy what lives they have due to the financial strain and burden of having to pay for their treatment out of pocket. I know that there are other groups out there that do provide support but by pledging your support right here you know that you are helping someone right here in our community.

    Don't know if we should start a forum for this and any and all ideas would be helpful. Thanks for your time.

    We need to make sure we vet those we help, but I’m onboard if needed and will help with the cost.
