    Fellow forumers...

    Right now, as we all go about our daily lifes and spend our time bitching at each other about stupid shit, there is a British Royal Marine, who lost both his legs and one arm, along with 5 mates, who are running from NY to LA to raise money for Help for Heroes (British Charity for Wounded Vets) and The Semper Fi Fund (for ours) and the Royal Marines Charitable Trust.

    6 brave men, 8 weeks, 3520 miles from sea to shining sea. Check out the link, if they're coming your way, get out there and give them a 'Ooorah', and some money, or donate on line... Remember - one of our very own members is a Brit Royal Marine. I think - rather than rep - he might be kind of thrilled if we did something to help his fellow Marines - on both sides of the Atlantic...

    Thank you.

    Too far for me to see them. But I'll make a donation.

    Thanks guys.

    Just to make it an opportunity for me to get my ass kicked, here's my deal. For every single one of you that posts in this thread, I will donate $5. For every one that donates, I will up that to $10. So, between you, you have the opportunity to hurt my bank balance.

    Have at it.

    Good point.... Let's say, I'll max it at $1,000.

    If we can get this thread to a nice easy 250 posts, I'll kick in $500. That sounds fair, I think. We'll run an honor system... I think most people here are decent enough to kick in $5 and post just to make me fork out $500.

    If there are those who post and lie, that is for them to live with. I'm easy about it. I'll do it for Boot, for the Royal Marines and for my beloved friends and family in the USMC.

    I'm a service connected disabled veteran myself. I feel for these guys. What they're doing is herculean in effort and admirable in nature. I kicked in $20.
