A while back a bunch of you guys donated to The Baghdad Canal cruisers. The club had about $500 or so left over when they broke up and went separate ways. That means I still have money that was to go to the rc boating troops. I have spoken to a couple of them over time but nothings come of the use of the money. I think its time to decide where it should go. Any suggestions from forum Veterans or people that gave originally would be appreciated?

How about phone cards so our forces can call home at Christmas! Hearing a loved ones voice at Christmas was the best gift I got while I was in "Nam"

Dr. Jet thanks for the suggestion! I'm sure that's a good foundations, but they (foundations) always worry me that a cut goes to administration. I want to do the leg work and get 100% of what I have to the guys on the ground out there.

I believe this particular one uses 100% of proceeds for the Vets. It is administered by a local radio talk-show guy that doesn't need the money.
