Reading back through the linked post, it was hard to determine everything as it seems it was re-edited quite a bit. Anyhow, as a combat injured, now retired former attack pilot with a missing arm and a shattered back I have to a lot to say but will limit it to this: If you are in fact an injured vet, we appreciate your service. It seems that maybe you have your priorities out of order, however. I suggest putting your efforts towards getting yourself into a stable life where you have a job and a means of supporting yourself, THEN start thinking about cars. Secondly, rolling up in a forum and just asking for handouts will likely not get you far. I travelled the country many years ago based solely on donations by helpful people but in return, they got an amazing story (I wrote about the trip in a blog, had several thousand subscribers at the end and hundred thousand plus views). Rethink your approach... If you have excuses why you can't get yourself into that position, I am likely not the sympathetic ear for them. After my injuries I put myself through medical school and now work 60-80 hours a week. There are some days I am in so much pain I literally cannot walk but still I carry on. Good luck!

The beatings will continue until morale improves!

Do you not remember the flaming you got from the original thread?

Why another thread playing up your lack of money and asking for help with a hobby, food I can understand,......Hobby help, NO!

Get off the usmc sob story, you get no sympathy from me.

Semper fi,.......not semper me.

Clarification, no sympathy for not having disposable income for a car build, not for your disability. I don't like the repost that is again clearly relating your desire for help with your service disability; not jarhead approved.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
I give thanks to all who serve and have served in our armed forces. I never served in the military myself, but a lot of my family has. I have a deep respect and admiration for those who serve and have served in our nations military. I will always be thankful. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who are serving on this day.

My personal belief is this. If I can help anyone who is serving or has served our country. I will if I can.
I personally find no dishonor in someone requesting my help, from anyone who has served.
Lets keep VMF, the kind of forum that is willing to help everyone.
Its fine to disagree with other members about anything. It is quite another to be judgmental or over critical of other people.
Enough said. Just my opinion.

I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway
I was flyin'"

No, you're incorrect, this isn't a repost.
