    We just got an email from our son who is deployed in the middle east.  He said that all sorts of folks are coming by to borrow the measuring cups we sent him.  I wouldn't have thought they would have been that popular, but apparently so.

    Just read all the post and I am feeling the love.

    I am currently in the Military and have been for the past 18 years. I know from personal experience what this means.

    Any thing you need Todd let me know.

    Thank You For Your Service Jake!

    I didn't know you were that young to still be in the service.

    I was in during the old days!!!

    No----Not flintlocks!!!!

    I never got anything sent to me in Vietnam, except letters.

    I got 231 letters from my wife in 217 days.

    Mail wasn't what it is today. No email either!

    The mail would stack up when we were out in the boonies.

    Sometimes we'd come back to base camp & there'd be 15 or more letters for me (14 from her--LOL).

    This is some great stuff Todd & others are doing!!!

    Thanks for the comments.

    I bet you where in when their where only 2 commands (mount and dismount) LOL

    I am planing on doing it for many more years.

    My dad is a Vietnam Vet. I still carry his Vietnam Zippo on me all the time. It has my mom and his name engraved on it. Its one of the my most prized things.

    And thanks from one Vet to the next Bear!

    Oh yea! I'll do a "girl" box! Would love to! Yet another good reason to make a trip to Victoria's Secret! Woohoo! I'll scan the internet for what a military gal might need.

    That is the cutest little squirrel I ever saw, except for the one I saw of a squirrel standing on a cliff while rock climbing.


    Thanks Jake.

    I was in right after they changed the command "Retreat" to "Advance to the rear".  [​IMG]

    Hang on to that lighter!

    That's awesome that you have that!

    I lost mine a long time ago---I think I left in on a bar, about 5 years after I got home. [​IMG]

    It had a Map of Southeast Asia on one side & my Name & Unit on the other.

    Say Hi & Welcome Home to your Dad from me.

    It would appear that there are several on this site who have chewed the same dirt.  Oooorah.  I'm glad to see we're taking care of this generation of warriors.

    Boy Scouts dropped off a bunch of stuff, Neighbors dropped of their Halloween candy  & My Wife got a bunch of stuff at Target

    [​IMG]

    I was able to pick up all of this stuff for "Free" or "Almost Free" after rebates from Menards + My Kids donated their Halloween Candy

    [​IMG]

    Thanks to Everyone who supported my donation drive!

    Looks like I've got (5) exchanges to go.  If you want to do an exchange, PM me.

    I'm still looking for some names to send "Care Packages" to.  PM me if you want one sent to a friend or relative you know.
