Hi Gang, the effort thus far is great and I applaud everyone who has contributed. With the up coming elections, home foreclosures, and environmental concerns, the Global War on Terrorism has lost some coverage, but don't be fooled. The troops are still over there pounding the sand and making a difference. In a few more months, I'll be passing the baton to my fellow brethren and supporting them for the years to come. Let's all make a difference and do our part. Thanks again for being a part of history! Jason :;):

Hi Bill;

I will be sending my check off today. I am thinking that this is a very difficult time of year to have a fund-raiser...have you considered

1. extending the deadline

2. promoting this on the other forums

3. having second, third and 4th prizes...just to jazz it up a bit...I would donate my very lightly used collection of gold-hunting c-d's, a gold-basin meteorite and small specie from Rich Hill.

On a different subject;

back in my hippie days I knew everything and had little respect for opposing opinions, without getting into politics, my one regret from those days is that I could not separate the politics from the military participants. Because of that mindset I didnot give the soldiers that served the honor and respect that was, and still is their due. For that I am truely sorry...every person that serves in our Military deserves my respect for their sacrifice and service to us all.

I realize there is some risk to this and if you want go ahead and delete this post...nonethe less, my offer stands.

Check will be in the mail tomorrow. I almost missed this altogether as I seldom look up in the topic area assuming that it is old hat. And, I

take a look at the forum almost daily. Perhaps someone could make notice of the raffle in the (lower) forum topics area again. Good luck

to all. --Perry--

Fred,

I was one of those on the other end of the spectrum. I want you to know that what you just posted means a lot ot many, especially me. The saying "time heals all wounds" is so very true. Once again, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I agree, that this needs to be posted in a few other areas, If it were not for "Sharing Finds", I myself would never look at the top of this forum.

Bill, just as soon as this ends, I will get all the drawing tickets to you. Just for the fun of it I held my own drawing and Garimpo won. I did put his winning ticket back in the pot.

I think this years winner should take care of the ticket stuff for next year. However, I will do it if needed... no problem at all.

OK, I have an easy fix to that problem, If Don wins, I will hold the flag for him and take care of the ticket stuff for next year. Some way shape or form, I really want to fly that flag on my flagpole for Veterans Day and Memorial day........... Maybe I could rent it from the winner for at least one day??????

Total so far is $655, Bill wants to hold this open till there are no more donations. When I am told it is over, I will send the ticket stubs to Bill for the drawing. He already has most of the money. Sofar it's been pretty slow raffle.

I can wait for my time to be care taker for this flag :innocent0009:

Slow for this year, but I think (hope) almost everyone here will be will to donate it back at the end of the year so we can do it again. So year after year we will have some to donate to the cause.

Great cause!
