How Many Veterans are there in the Forum?1449

Forum Owner Belew private msg quote post Address this user
I am being treated to dinner tonight, courtesy of a local steak house... because I am a Veteran.

A buddy and I will be doing Applebees, Denny's and the like on Wednesday.

It got me to wondering ... and I know there are others, who else is a Veteran in the forum.

I am ex-Navy.

Next?

US Army- I might flash my CAC card once or twice for Vets Day but I would never wear a uniform again.

This inspired me to do a roundup of my "war stories" -

@LizG - wow, Marines are already pretty elite. ("few, proud.." slogan for those less familiar) Women marines are even few-er!

@jycmba It was a fun gig, I served as a musician. But rough on the body, glad to be out.

@LizG - that's what I often say. No regrets, but happy to have my freedom back!

@Belew - I've got a veteran friend who is working to raise money for his nonprofit. Here's the link - http://www.crosinitiative.org/blog/

Here's the thing that most organizations like his struggle with - they try to use the same message of "please give us money, can you help us.." over and over again..

This quickly becomes white noise. I'm going to invite him to this forum but I'm just wondering how else he can generate content that attracts the right kind of audience?

@jycmba

I have the perfect thing for him.

These guys I am working with can get him $10K in free Google ad spending per month!

IF...If he really is a non-profit. Registered 501c3.

Is s/he?

@Belew - good point, I forget about that all the time.

Let me invite him to this discussion thread.

7 years in the British infantry. Needless to say I am broken beyond repair. Life goes on. Quote of the hour... "You can take the man out of the army but you can't take the army out of the man."
