    That's awesome! I really like Warrant Officers their ranks always seem full of the really down to earth guys. If I had to choose one I'd probably take the Infantry over Cavalry personal, but I like being a ground pounder lol so I'm not sure if that opinion will help him.

    Yes, this place truly is awesome. I first join simply to gain more knowledge of vaping after I started getting interested in DIY. After being here a while, it is a major part of my day. Being disabled, this community has become my main sorce of contact with the outside world and the caring, friendship, and differences all coming together because of a shared enjoyment of vaping has been a great thing to be a part of.

    Assuming things stay the same for another day, I'm really looking forward to PIF'ing the prize to @franciscan's 510 vapes program for the vets.

    Hooah!

    I didn't even know of a group that helped vets to stop smoking with the aid of vape. None of my VA doctors told me, they just gave me drugs that didn't work and acted surprised that I quit by using vape . I use the VA hospital in Oklahoma City, do you know of a group that works there, if so I would like to get with them and give them free juice that I make to help the cause.

    I really want to be fair about this.
    I think most (hopefully all) of us would like to give this juice to Franciscan so he can PIF to the 510 Vapers who arranges distribution to the local VA Hospitals.
    SO if you agree give this post a like. If you don't think I'm correct about this than make a comment and tell us why.
    You got until tomorrow (Monday 1 Dec 2014) morning. At that time I'll be sending the codes to Franciscan so he can get the 10 X 10ml bottles from Vapecrafter.
    And don't forget about Gunner's Gold (http://www.gggejuice.com/) with his offer to PIF to those that are not the winners to get some free juice for veterans. So really EVERY VETERANS WIN.

    I sent Franciscan a PM. Did you get it?
    And thank again people for letting me have some fun giving this juice away.
    Next time I have a Doctor appointment down at the local VA hospital I'll ask around about if we have a program for getting vet's off cig using vape that I can help with.

    I find it odd that you would complain about not yet receiving a prize.... You won an online contest; it probably took you all of 2 minutes to enter the contest and all you had to do was wait. Paying customers probably take priority over people that win contests. Just FYI.

    I didn't see a complaint, just a statement. As far as I can tell, she may have just been advising that it may take awhile to receive the prize.

    Ok, I just redeemed the coupon code for the ten bottles of juice. I want to thank @RMarcusY for making this possible, and a sincere humble thank you ALL for thinking of our Veterans who wish to give up cigarettes and try vaping! It's times like this that I myself am truly humbled to give what little I can back to these brave and selfless people who so willingly risked life and limb to preserve our freedom and secure the futures of our children and grandchildren. It is through their sacrifice and YOUR generosity that we remain not only a fraternity of warriors, but of vapers who continue to value life and liberty above all things. I salute you and love you all.

    I just talked to VapeCrafter and Franciscan and it sound like they got the juice on the way to the veterans that Franciscan works with, Thanks to both of them from myself and I'm sure all of you.

    During my time of service the marine's always were good to me. I had many a good time with you guys. On Navy bases we were called pecker checkers, on Marine bases we were called Doc.

    On submarines we called our corpsman "Doc" as well. He was our soul avenue of medical and dental care while underway and we kept him comfy and happy.

    Bco 63rd Sig Bn US Army. I served during 9/11 / Iraq era. I was medically discharged against my will but I was too broken to continue. If you google Scott Hicks Grants Pass Veteran you will see what I did last summer to give back to my brothers in arms. 12,000 miles in a 65 VW Bug speaking at events across the country. Spoke in the Senate and Congress, managed to get three items into a bill that was passed a week after I was there, was in times square with special NYPD guard for 24hrs. ended up in Hot VWs magazine. It was a brutal, exhausting, mentally draining, etc. however it was well worth it. Raising awareness about PTSD, Depression, and Veteran Suicide rates. Thank You all for your service.

    I am allways glad to see people that heard about the journey. when I was in the Army I was smoking a pack a day. three years after I got out I quit smoking. I later started smoking premium cigars but not inhaling. eventually I was up to 2-4 cigars a day and it got way to expensive... enter Vaping... I hate those stupid pens, they do nothing for me, but a good big regulated mod or an unregulated high capacity mod like my Hades which uses 26650 batteries and a couple different rdas and tanks and bam I have satisfaction and not spending what I did on Cigars. now I smoke a cigar once or twice a week and they are much better cigars so I enjoy them as a treat. Vaping gives me that creative freedom in the coil building and the diy Juice making where I can blend to my personal tastes. and best of all.... I don't stink all the time. however I do have to clean the car windows much more often... I love seeing older veterans getting into vaping and stopping smoking. I know a lot of Nam era vets that are making the switch and honestly I think the VA should offer some program to get guys switched over.

    I'm a Veteran of Operations Northern Watch, Southern Watch and Iraqi Freedom with FIVE tours of duty under my belt over 12 years of service of both the U.S.M.C. AND the U.S. NAVY! (It's really not that interesting of a tale. Got out of the corps. When I shouldn't have, decided to go back in but that was right after gulf war 1 so we were in a draw down. Anyway, the corps wasn't taking prior service, even their own. Ain't that a bitch? The navy said "Get yer Jarhead ass over here" so I joined. Good times were had by all..... Especially the beer stockholders.) Believe it or not, aside from a little rivalry we get along better than you'd think...... (Except for the Chair Farce, Fuck those guys, lmao.)
    Nowadays, I've got the GWS (gulf war syndrome) yeah, it IS real.... That stupid anthrax anti-viral shot... Blah, blah, blah. Got a crazy case of epilepsy, and a Buncha other auto-immune shit. etc. etc.

    P.S.
    Yes I know this contest was over two years ago, I'm a jarhead so by definition only half retarded...... The army's behind me. I just saw the thread and figured I'd bitch to myself for awhile. Why am I explaining it? To you stupid...... Duh. Why am I STILL talking? Ummm, shit! You Actually got me there......
    Becaaauuuuuussssssse I'm a narcissist?
