A request from way in the back corner
After conversation with Chad Loch, the president I knew this was the right outfit. They do some amazing stuff. Chad said that they could use the clothes for some of the people that they help. You all might want to visit the web site and take a look for yourself. They're local to Green Bay.
Thanks to you guys for letting me vent. I handled something I hadn't been able to for a bunch of years.
But I have to respectfully disagree
When I was a lad in the early 70's I was too busy being a punk and a he*l raiser to be bothered with that kind of responsibility. I am nowhere the man he was. Just because of the emotional factor I couldn't wear them. especially around my brother.
I do appreciate the kind words from all of you.
Sometimes kids do the right things : )
I talked with a warden and he gave me the same suggestions you guys did. I just sent an email to the president of this org.'Take'em Outdoors' http://www.takeemoutdoors.org/
If this doesn't work out I will contact you igor. If I saw your post before my email I would've just gave them to you.
I too am sorry for your family's loss. I have never experienced loss to that degree in my life so I can't pretend to know how you feel. But I disagree with something that you said.
You mentioned that you and your brother taught Matt how to hunt and fish. Yours and your brother's parenting and mentoring likely contributed to Matt developing his sense of honor, loyalty, duty, generosity, respect, selflessness and sacrifice that I believe a person requires in order to have the bravery to pick up a weapon and defend a nation and it's people.
Again, I cannot say that I know the pain that you and your family must feel over this but I disagree with you thinking that you are not worthy.
For what it's worth...
P.s. Posted prior to reading Igor's post.
I'm a volunteer with the WI Paralyzed Veterans in the Milwaukee area and I know there are several members who still hunt & fish who could put the gear to good use. Let me know it you're interested and we can arrange something.
