    To the AO family

    I just wanted to give thanks to everyone here on AO. this is a very strong community, and has been supportive of me (and others i'm sure) during a tough time in my life.

    I don't come from a perfect home, in fact ,sadly, I come from the new "average american home"

    my parents divorced when i was young and my mother used me to wage a war to take everything, my "dad" conceeded to keep me and my half-brothers together. Shortly after my mother "won" we lost everything and moved around from apartment to apartment. the friendship support was never so strong as when i joined the service.

    I had a new family, people to watch my back, guys i defended and they defended me...

    when i was injured, it all changed, work load had to be redivided and the mentors i looked to for support looked down on me and said you're not worthy.

    the reason i am telling you this is not to make you feel sorry for me but to make you (AOer's) to feel good. As a community AO completely supports it's users. complete strangers offered to help me pay for a toy that would likely never be used. I can not say enough about the support i've recieved here, thank you AO



    I would like to dedicate this thread to giving thanks, so call them out, tell people how good they really are!

    Don't thank me yet. I expect you to work your ass off at legends with your tank

    No problem, anytime. Ha and my wife says I waste to much time with my silly paintball stuff. Honestly since I've been married and turned in my "man card" hanging out here and on BEO is about the only time I can shoot the breeze with my buds...so thank you...and thank you AO.

    Wow man. Thanks. But I don't remember doing anything. Sounds like your growing up was on par with my wife's though. Sorry to hear that. Stay strong man. When something is really needed speak up. We all help when we can. With what we can.
