It's kenny right. I am at the VA hospital every week for something. Agent Orange got my heart and lungs and I am in and out of a wheel chair quite a lot. It really burns me when people disrespect our country and the people who fought for it. Thankfully the jeep community seems to be a very patriotic bunch. And thank you for your service.

Thanks to both of you guys and all our armed forces for their service to this country. My grandfather was a veteran of WWII and Pearl Harbor. Thanks for fighting for our rights.

I was happy to learn recently that the daycare for my 4 yo has them do the pledge of allegiance every morning.

I just took over as PL at my unit. They tried to make me knock on the air before I enter an area they are in. Pretty funny really. What they don't know is that I have 20 years of service. They'll get theirs soon enough.

Yeah I'm debating on dropping an OCS or a green to gold packet... I would enjoy messing with people as a PL

I didn't know they were still doing green to gold. You should do it. We need more prior service Officers. If you have any questions about it let me know.
OCS was no joke! I didn't do the Federal course at Benning though. The National Guard takes "care" of their OCS candidates in South Dakota and Alabama.
I thought SERE school was tough. OCS at Alabama kicked my arse..

I encourage all my E's to go gold. Lot of BS in those ranks but at the end of 20, that monthly check ain't so bad.

There is a lot of BS once you get up in rank. That's why I am perfectly content staying a LT for as long as possible. I might even take a Warrant in a few years just to keep me in the real world.

We should do a Military run some time. It seems like there's a lot of us on here...I work with the Wounded Warrior Project so we could even do a fundraiser for them if there was interest.

I'm not Ret Military, but I'd pay for the privilege to go on that run.

Anyone would be welcome. I think Memorial Day is a great idea. I'll post up the run on the main forum when we figure out the details.

the wwp fundraiser is a killer idea too ... once a run is set i'll use different channels here on post to reach out the the Jeepers/Off-Roaders that aren't on this forum ... and I'm sure some of our marines/air force/navy jeepers on the forum can do the same on their end

That day is a little crowded on the trails and sometimes there are major wheeling events during this time as well. Also have to look at the heat building up out here around that time.

Early May BB run would be awesome. Make it a weekend thing.

In my HS classroom for the past 35 years I did not force the students to recite the PoA, but they sure as hell had to stand and be respectful.

Cool. I figured there would be a lot of interest. I have yet to meet a Jeeper that wasn't a red blooded American on here.

I'll solicit the WWP to see if I can make the run an official charity run for tax purposes. Any suggestions as to where, what and how we want to do this? I'm liking the idea of a big bear run. It's convenient for the San Diego folks as well as the Fort Irwin, Edwards Jeepers.

I will also talk to some local shops to see if they would want to sponsor this event in some fashion. I know locally I have Safari Straps, SPOD, Higher Ground Off-Road and Fab, Big Johns Performance, and the Transmission man to name a few. If anyone else wants to, have at it. We could do a raffle and donate the money to WWP.

Just brainstorming here. Let's keep this thread alive.

Loving this idea. It's a great time of the year to be there and it's convenient for a lot of people. Let's pick a weekend that doesn't conflict with any other events.
