    Just returned from extolling the forum's generosity.  Should have a few more non Q/forum contributors straight to the OBR site.  $$ are $$ and they all end up helping the cause.  
    Given the audience, I was not gonna drive the $$ thru our efforts-just saying there are many ways to move the fund raising forward.  Besides, food and drink provided  B)  Go forth and do great things!

    You wax eloquent, must have learned that in command training.

      I think you meant you convinced some friends to donate, but not through JIC's site because it may be too rough for the more gentile crowd you hang out with, so they will go straight you OBR.

    You are right, they would not let most of us into the Officers Club.  Which reminds me of the officer's club in Kwaj. That place was fun, but that is a story for another time.

    @JohnInCarolina I will give you full marks for making this happen.  However, I reserve judgement about Sharon.  I do wonder the trip-wire for declaring "success".  
    Regardless, this is a great undertaking and cause.  
    See you Friday night-

    It is a yuge success in the most Egghead forum way possible.  Imagine this joint if it didn't take weeks to get approved by the mods and multiple phone calls and emails?  It would be chaos.

    JIC - Any idea how much  would be needed?

    I'll bet we could get the trolls riled up enough to take a real shot at it...

    These are rounded for easy math, plus guestimates, but I am a professional ....

    9 million meals served
    510 days deployed

    So 17,650 meals per day 

    Lets say $3 per meal, that is $53,000 per day, or $106,000 per weekend.

    We have a ways to go gentlemen.

    @Ozzie_Isaac - Once you roll into numbers with professionals it can be a sobering exercise.  But do not let that dampen the contributions.  
    Keep 'em coming.

    Questions for Sharon:

    1. What are average meal costs.
    2.  If they deploy in multiple locations on the same day, does that count as 1 day deployed, or 1 day for each location, so 1 day may be multiple deployments?

    $3 per meal sounds too high.  Most of the food is donated, so it doesn’t cost that much.

    You remind me of my kid when he was 12 and knew everything.  Super cute!
