Okay,
So since da Rub went UA, I've been trying to think of something that I could give up for him in appreciation of all the things that he did for the board and for us as members...
I'm not a religous person, but as I understand the concept of Lent, you have to give up something that is significant -
So let me share a story with you. When I was in Japan, I was in a Navy unit - I was the only Marine. Well, if there is one Marine, then there is a Marine flag - period. Unfortunately, we could not procure one - so we had one made. The flag that draped behind my desk and was posted with the American, Japanese and Navy flags during ceremonies - but I did not give up - and after several rounds of correspondance with HQMC, I finally obtained permission to requisition two Marine flags for our unit. This happened about a week before my son was diagnosed with Diabetes and I had to leave Japan. In appreciation for the things I had done at the command, I recieved several gifts, including the Marine Flag. If you know a Marine, then you know what this flag represents - and the symbolism behind me letting it go for Andy. I am not selling this flag, but I am offering it for auction to benefit Andy - anything that this flag brings goes to the "help Andy" fund.

Let's get this rolling and help our brother out!
Semper Fidelis,
Shawn

Thanks Big G! Andy has done alot to motivate all of us. How many times had he been there to help drum up support for someone who needed it? For all the things that he has done for us, this is the very least that I could do!
