TFO is an awesome all Veteran Org. I have had the privilege to go on a guided fishing trip with them and it was really neat to be able to connect with other Vets and get outdoors with them. I have also got to meet a few of the Staff and they have all been pleasant and class acts when dealing with them personally.
Keep up the good work TFO!!!!!!

beyond this as a non profit, the real story is the heart and sole of those who established this. All are current and former Vets. Established to help those with the difficult post service transitions through a very common source, "the great outdoors". Veterans are lost every day to PTSD and suicides across America. The man who established this has a very personal story he shared last year with us at the banquet, frankly this saved his life and I am very certain others the TFO reaches out too every day. His passion for the outdoors is without question and his commitment to do whatever it takes to help those in need of support is remarkable. Eric is a stand up dude and very proud to be apart of this and to be able to call him a friend myself! This is NOT a shady organization skimming profits like you have read of other national groups supporting vets. Grass roots started locally here in Tacoma, spreading across America with local chapters of support.

I bid $240 without zucchini, or $225.01 if I have to eat  zucchini.

You're either a vegetarian, or you missed jackmaster's bid of $225.00. It's not supposed to be a tie.

I know.   

Jackmaster is in at $225, but if you don't make me eat zucchini I am in at $240......   right?

I need to know, because I hate zucchini.

I'll eat your share, and whatever other leftovers you have.

Gonna come down to a time stamp on the post.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Ruh Roh.......

My wife reminded me that our 16 year old daughter is returning from an 8-week trip to Peru the night of the auction.....  and that I just might want to be around.

It wouldn't bother me if someone outbid me.

And, you can have my zucchini.
