  • A personal honor

    Hi Folks,

    I just wanted to share this and say thanks to the recent members that have helped me with ammo for the snipers I train. It's well known that for 31 years I've offered any of our Military snipers "free" training if our government couldn't afford it. As long as they show me orders for the sandbox or whatever we're dealing with. I've brought these young snipers in my home, housed them, fed them and trained them.

    Many times these snipers could not bring their rifles or ammo. In the past I've supplied both ammo and rifles. However, now with the cost of ammo through the roof, it's been tough. Some of you have stepped up to the plate and helped me, by providing ammo for these Soldiers and Marines.

    To day I received this certificate of thanks from General Richard A. Cody, Vice Chief of Staff. Thanks to all that have helped me help the snipers.

    Best regards, flea

    PS also a sweet coin!!

          Job well done buddy. Congratulations buddy, that is one well deserved and long overdue Bravo Zulu.

          It's nice to see some public recognition of the traits that those of us privileged to know you appreciate, and why we are all thankful and honored to call you "my friend".

          Better be careful though, you may end up in ACU yet ole buddy.

                That's wonderful recognition for the years of service you have given to your country. You and your family are shining examples of what it means to be an American, and I'm proud to call myself one.

                Thanks again for your dedication to your country and your fellow Americans.
                America deserves to know her heroes!

                  Well deserved!

                  Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

                              Hey Vern,
                              That is OUTSTANDING, Bro! It's good to see you recognized for all that you've done...Now if they could maybe attach that to the outside of a pallet, or ten, of ammo...and maybe a Travel Trailer to house the guys while they are there ...
