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.

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!

    • nice indeed to have the height and storage. stand and smoker sat in garage 4 years. He made me a nice deal. 
    • He does get a little crazy on the smoker deal.  Almost Religious! 😁
    • Lol. That's exactly what I just said but thanks.👍
    • You can turn an old refrigerator into a pellet smoker....      
    • I bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40" last winter and ended up giving it to a friend of mine to have at his cabin. They are fine, don't get me wrong but I just wasn't happy with the ribs I made in there as opposed to a charcoal smoker. It is ironic that Leech made the comment about a vertical pellet smoker needing to be refilled often because that is one of the things I didn't like about my MES. Maybe Leech's Char Broil has a bigger wood chip hopper but the MES had to be filled about every 20 minutes to keep smoke rolling.   I'm not against electric smokers and if that is what I had started out on I would probably still be using it but I found that instead of having a minimum of 3 pieces of grilling equipment to store and maintain, I can do everything I need to do with just a pellet grill and still have the ease of set it and forget it like an electric smoker. If I needed a very large cooking space I wouldn't hesitate to pick up one of those Pit Boss verticals even if I ended up changing out the controller for something with better temp control.
    • A local company here, AEM mapping, has completed mapping the lower basin of lake winnipeg, from winnipeg beach across to the east side, and down to the mouth of the red river. The lower red river from Lockport to the mouth has also been mapped. The structure they found, and the detail is astounding and will be a game changer, especially for folks coming up and have a limited amount of time to fish.  The red is available through hummingbird right now, the AEM maps chips of the red and lake winnipeg are compatable with lowrance units only. A full list of compatable units can be found on their site.  Chips will be available mid December, pricing will be announced shortly.
    • I have had a few electric smokers but if I ever change that up I will definitely go to a pellet smoker. I have had my mind set on making one from an old refrigerator but these bigger pit boss models might just be the ticket.    
    • and lets not overlook the ever present found hound!!!!!!!!
    • Like the rolling cabinet. Looks like a nice storage area for wood chips, scrappers, tin foil and all the other gizmos needed for grilling and smoking. And gets the smoker up so you don't have to bend down to fill it. 🙂
    • My new set up. Got it mid-summer from a friend who hardly used it. So far I have done ribs, loin, crappies, and eggs. And pickles 2 times. excellent on a burger!
