Donate to the intrepid fallen heroes fund 100% of donations goes to help build a veterans hospital in San Diego. Here's a website with all the information:

http://www.fallenheroesfund.org/fallenheroes/index.php

It's to bad that we have to even depend on donations and bake sales to fund more veteran hospitals. It's a crying shame that the a-holes in the White House don't give a sh!t when it comes to helping our veterans after they have been exploited and used in Iraq and Vietnam etc.

The republicans love our troops but they hate them once they are used up and of no help and are seeking help. Ask most wounded and ill veterans if you don't believe me.

The fund has not asked for nor does it want governmental assistance. Private charity is more effective than big government will ever be so take your partisan sh!t and p!ss off.

It SOUNDS good and everything....but it's supposed to be located at Brooke Army Medical Center, which is located on Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas (not San Diego like you said in your original post, ToT). If it's on a military base.....why are they taking private donations? I've never seen or heard of something being built on a military installation using anything but government funds. Sure, they bring in contractors from the local area to actually do the building, but it's all paid for through DoD.

God you're such a conspiracy theorist, the most effective support for our troops will come from the citizenry itself. This charity has asked for absolutely no Governmental assistance and that's why I support it, this charity is how it should be; voluntary. I really can't believe how you people defame this noble cause for partisan purposes, grow a soul. This is not only a paritisan issue, it's a human issue, I can only afford $20.00, how much can you spare? Either you support our troops or you don't, and if you don't well then may the gods be merciful upon your soul.

Conspiracy theorist? Hardly. But as I said, I have NEVER heard of this being done before.

Partisan purposes? Nope. If it's legit, I think it's great. But I'm allowed to have my reservations about it, just like anyone else, and just like with any other charity.

This is not only a paritisan issue, I can only afford $20.00, how much can you spare?
How about four years of my life, four years of my husband's life...the list goes on and on. My family has given a LOT to the military.

Either you support our troops or you don't, and if you don't well then may the gods be merciful upon your soul.
Joining the service is the best way anyone could show their support. I did it, why haven't you?

And you obviously haven't looked too closely at my sig.

Well check this out chick (ya you're still a girl) big government is a joke and can never be trusted to serve our countrymen, it is up to us through private charity, are you going to honestly sit here and say that our troops should rely on the welfare state????!!!! Fuc/k that they deserve more and the welfare state is bullshit they deserve everything they need not what big government decides!

Never should the fate of our soldiers be put in the hand of the state, they are of, by, and for the people, and as such they must have their support from the people but if that support comes from the state alone that's called totalitarianism!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, Traj, you're absolutely right. Our citizens need to be doing more for our troops, because it's quite obvious the government isn't doing nearly enough. Just look at the cuts in VA spending. That alone should raise a big red flag.

Again, you're absolutely right. And I did some more research on this charity, and from what I can see, they're perfectly legit. All I was saying is it seemed a little odd, because I've never heard of a military facility being funded by outside sources. Not to mention, Fort Sam Houston is practically nothing but a) a training post for medical related MOS's; and
b) a post full of medical facilities.

But hey, one more can't hurt. :smile:

Fuc/k the government they're obsolete, within the current context of a federalist governemnt it seems basically that it is a non-issue but within the context of the Constitution it has veered very far from the ideal. You're a soldier tell me what this means, and if you can't the military is not teaching you the basis of the U.S. military: "Nex ut tyrannus y sic semper tyrannus, licentia vel nex."

The thing about it is is you're not only a classical beauty but you're a servant of the Republic (soldier) if I had one half of your power and respect, then things would be very different.

WTF? Air Force right? What are you people over at the AF doing? How could you go through Boot Camp and not know Latin? I gotta tell you I'm a little surprised to hear you guys are so far behind the times. I know when I was in Navy Boot they canceled our "Man over board, survival at sea training" so they could teach us an out dated foreign language.

I think they did that so we could sound smart when posting on internet forums in the future. See planning ahead.

They must have dropped the ball in my squadron then, because I certainly don't remember learning any Latin ;)

Well I'm writing my Congressman, simply unacceptable.
In all seriousness, it is a little sad that I don't know much Latin....they really should offer it in more high school curriculums. I went to one of the best high schools in my area, and the only language classes we had were Spanish and German - I took Spanish because I had started taking it in 8th grade, so I already knew the basics. But it's so sad that kids don't even have the choice of taking something else, not even French, for crying out loud!!! But Latin, well, many people encounter Latin phrases throughout their life, and I think even a short, basic course in Latin would be quite beneficial to most folks.
