What are the details?

What kind of AR? What is the price? Are you just going to collect until you get enough in donations, or is there a cutoff date?

[Last Edit: 9/26/2004 4:07:40 PM EST by TexRdnec]
no cutoff date right now because we have no idea when he will be released from the hospital...............

right now i'm planning on a bushmaster M4 A2 for right under $XXX (cheap) but it really depends on the donations we get, we can always go up or down from there...........................

folks, thats very little money from very few members to make this a reality, i have no shame in begging for this cause............

edited because i don't want to piss on bushmaster posting dealer prices online, just know it will be my price and not a penny more.....................

ok.
SSG JONGEMA is in DC. His wife and child are with him. unclear on what degree they have all got to communicate with him. his wife has talked to him in person. his mother is on the way about 0900(SEPT28) or shortly after to see him also. She will BE HAND CARRYING A PRINTOUT OF THIS THREAD, among other get-wells and thankyous befitting an N.C.O. in such a position.

SSG JONGEMA was told on SEPT 26 of the amount of people in the world who are pulling for him, and he shed a tear.

Being a very capable NCO, as well as my brother in law, as well as a brother in arms in the war on terror, 30 CAL has the utmost respect and concern for the 2nd gen. patriot. His father served most proudly and is one of the few people in my world back home who can relate to my experiences as a paratrooper. Jongema's father was a BADASS too.
SSG Jongema, Jarret is a man in the greatest sense of the word. When he graduated high school, he decided to persue a career in the Army instead of an art or computer career. Each time he re-enlisted he knew that his men depended on his leadership and training.

As I am a paratrooper, SSG Jongema is a LEG i would follow any anywhere.

GOD BLESS ALL ARFCOMMERS< AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

30CAL

CH my $29 for the Ruger mags is on the way as you know, and you absolutely have my permission to send it over to Tex.
I'll try to dig up a few more.
Link Posted: 9/27/2004 5:02:10 PM EST
Thanks for setting this up Tex! My little bit will go out in tomorrow morning's mail.
Do you need magazines? I can afford to part with a couple.
Hopefully enough cash will be collected to provide at least a case of ammo. Having a new rifle and no ammo for it is........UnAmerican!
