    I'm in for some money when needed. As for packing how about some of those thick blankets like the moving companies use or if think those will add too much weight to the shipping cost how about the foam egg crates. Might be a better cushion better than bubble wrap.

    Hey Ya'll,

    I would like to thank Mickey, the distributer, and everyone at the forum for contributing to this project and making this a reality.

    HungryMan: I will see about getting the shirt on a tank for ya but I don't know about any action shots. lol. Thanks for the shirt though.

    Everyone Else: If there is anything yall need from this side of the world don't hesitate to ask.

    Thanks Again,

    Chris, you just stay safe and know that there are many, many, many patriots here at home that so greatly appreciate the sacrifices of all our service men and women. I come from a family of soldiers and sailors past and present, and am so humbled by what their families endure on our behalf. You all stay on my prayer list permanently.

    Mickey - when you get it nailed down, count me in to help.

    Please let me know about $$$ for shipping - I'd love to help. I've emailed a bit with the soldier - putting together a supply of spices, rubs, and his favorite - Dale's sauce/marinade. A couple of friends have joined me in this and we'll get the box in the mail soon. I'm so proud to see folks stepping up...that mini is going to get a serious work-out! :laugh:
