Help with a local soldiers Christmas

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hello All,
I think that many of you know Nathan Heim. He is a Kelliher native that is currently serving in Iraq and has been there since April. He is a huge Red Lake fisherman and also a cousin to Baitco and myself. Nates mother has organized an ornament drive. Her hope is to overwhelm her soldier with christmas ornaments. It doesnt have to be anything huge or expensive just something that he can hang on his tree over there. For those of you that know him or those of you just care about the boys that are over there, here is his address

SPC Heim, Nathan A
142nd C/142nd ECB (HVY)
Unit #92658
APO AE 09323-2658

Thanks

What a great idea! I will have my little two sew/stitch up a few this week and send them out Priority Mail. Do you think they will get there in time?
Keep Smiling.

Good point Hastings, It has usually been taking 2+ weeks to get to iraq but with the holidays who knows how long it will take. All i can say is the sooner the better.

Our ornament went in the mail yesterday. Nate's dad built our little log cabin a couple of summers ago and Nate worked on it before boot camp so we felt like we kind of know him. It's a great thing he's doing so let's all show our support to HIM regardless of whether we support the government's position on the war.

Well our ornament will be dropped off with rose tomarrow. I graduated with nathan and grew up with nathan and i think its great what hes doing over there fighting for our country. This whole community of Kelliher is so proud of him and will be there to great him when he comes home. I encourage everyone to send something to him, he is a super kid with a great attitude and I know he is doing his best to protect us. Thanks Nate

Maybe one of the mods from this forum could move this post to the ice fishing forum, then go back and open it up again in the URL forum.

It's a done deal and a very worthy cause.

I'm asking for everyones help to keep this up for the next couple weeks.

Post here at least once a day with thoughts for the our soldiers in Iraq.

My cousin's son from Missouri was shot in the legs a few months back and hasn't made it back home. Don't know his address as of this post but throw in a word when you're praying for a speedy return for our soldiers.

Great idea!

My soon to be brother-in-law has also been over in Iraq since April. My family and friends have been pooling together boxes of supplies for him and his fellow troops. I'm amazed how well it has caught on. I bet we're shipping 3-4 shoeboxes per week! Just simple stuff (i.e. candy, magazines, toothpaste, soap, etc...), but he said it really keeps him going. You'd be amazed what little supplies they have.

So I guess what I'm saying is not to forget our troops. If you can send something, anything, please do so! It will go a long way to making them feel appreciated.

My ornament (plus more) will be in the mail tonight!

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
