Default Operation Heroes Wish

I met a group of guys today that was from a diff Brigade today. One of their fellow Soldiers had been KIA in Afghanistan and they are building his jeep the way he had planned. The jeep will be presented to his wife and children at a local event in September. We are looking for donations or anything that will help them out, Ive donated my rims, and any of my weekends or time that they need for the next few months to help them complete this in time. A local Linax is spray the inside of the jeep, they got a great deal on a lift kit from Rough Country, and Im going to the audio shop I work part time at to see if I can secure some audio goodies for them. Here are a few links to the project, FB page and donation page.

Thank You
Will

Just being aware and doing what you can is all the difference . I gave some volunteer time to different groups and helped them out doing stuff , and we give to the disabled vets causes as well . All good stuff in my opinion . The little stuff is where its at ! Say hi , thanks , and buy them a cup of coffee . I remember my dad , as He spoke very little about WW2 . They are why we are still here today !!!

I'll see what I can chip in. I'm jobless at the moment, if I were still in TN I'd stop in and help out too.
