This thread is for every active service man and woman deployed on combat duty.

Its the season for thanks and giving and well frankly We cannot thank you enough for giving up everything dear and sacred to you to protect our way of life. Its an act of selflessness that cannot be expressed with enough gratitude.


As a Brother at arms and a very active military activity supporter My family and I thank you for doing what you do best.

A few years ago I was the main sender for care packages on a few forums that had inactive and retired service members on it and we raised enough monthly to send two moving boxes full of supplies that the military doesn't supply. I am very interested in doing this again as I have much better income and much better knowledge of what to send and what not to send. If any forum members are interested I do have a pay pal set up for cash donations and I also am capable of receiving packages and repacking in larger shipments.

If interested feel free to PM me with any questions, I work with a couple local VFW's and American legion's. I am also willing to donate 50% or more of my profits from selling home bred fish to this cause.

Thank you

Chad, please give a big HOOAH! to your squad.

May you all return home safely, if not your ultimate sacrifice was not in vein, its for the future of america.

[email protected] or [email protected] I prefer the Gmail due to it being a personal account.

I am trying to get something going at my actual work, I mean 1800 people a day thru our doors thats alot of potential and 99.9% of our customer base is either military, or some form of law enforcement( hometown heroes). I am also going to talk to my chiropractor(thanks US ARMY) about this too.

Its too bad we cant send you guys ammo that explodes on contact.


Chad, keep your head down and always check your 6.

Sure, do you got a bow?

I am the stingy angler, I use 30 dollar ugly stiks with 300 dollar diawa reels. people look at me odd but when you work where I work you learn a thing or two about rod construction and tolerances.

Do you ice fish? thats my favorite.

Yeah ice fishing is iffy right now, spud buster is a must right now.

a few miles away dude got a very small northern yesterday about 18" long just FULL of color. the average bass runs 4# out of this place.

I live right on the fox river down here and have been wading it still with tons of walleyes in very small size.

Yes they do what they have to. I fell terribly grateful to them, even though i've never supported them, just like I don't support hunting, fishing, or deforestation. those 3 have their reasons, too, but doing it for sport IMO is totally unacceptable and should be illegal IMO. deforestation in general should be slowed down, too. and murdering is wrong, of course. but these people are going away for the holidays and won't see their families and for them there might not be a holiday season next year. to all the people in the middle-east-stay safe and hopefully you'll be home soon.
