    I wont embarrass him by saying what it is that he did (unless he says it's ok) but let's just say that this man proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he loves his country and those who serve in it!
    God bless you brother!

    Ok, guys here it is...

    Catfishkatmando pm'd me Wed. in regards to a post I made about my brother being called up by the Army after being off of active duty for 5 1/2 years.
    He said that he occasionally sends a knife to a soldier who is going into harms way and asked what kind of work my brother does to help him pick out a suitable knife.

    I responded and gave him my address and today a package containing the knife was delivered!

    Catfishkatmando AKA: Wiliam doesn't know me or my brother, but he loves his country and it's military so much that merely saying so is not enough; no he went the extra mile and proved it!
    We need more people like him in this world!
    God bless you wiliam!

    Catfishkatmando,

    Hello my name is Josh, i am Believer's younger brother and let me just say THANK YOU!!! I'm really not one with words but i do want to take the opportunity to thank you for the knife, it totally blew me away, especially when i found what that particular knife retails for and for you to give a gift like that to a total stranger is something truly special. I have never met you before but hopefully someday i will so i can thank you in person! I have been out of the Army for about 5 1/2 years now and with only 8 months until my commitment is fulfilled i have been activated. Things have been pretty stressful around here since i recieved my news, especially since i do not know where i am going or for how longand also since now i have a beautiful wife and a son that turns 2 the day before i leave. I knew when i raised my right hand all those years ago that this could happen and being raised with the father that we had, always being taught the importance of things such as morals, truth and pride, i knew that i would answer the call without hesitation; But i can say that it hasn't been exactly easy on anyone here. This country was founded on and protected throughout by service and sacrifice and it truly helps ease the pain of that sacrifice from my perspective to know that there are people like you in this world that appreciate what it is that we do. The term "brotherhood" has become pretty apparent to me in the short time that i have been a member here, your gift to me will never be forgotten and hopefully one day i can repay the favor, i owe you at least a cold one my friend! thanks again, Josh


    P.S. since i am so new to this site i don't have any PM privelages yet thats why im posting this here.

    I know it has to be hard on the wife and son,but you are a true american soldier and I salute you for that. Just be careful where ever they send you and we'll be expecting that brother of yours to keep us on top of how you are doing.
    Now with that said I want to say Welcome tO theBOC. this is one big family here. I really do believe that when one member is hurting everyone can feel thier pain. You take care ,God Bless and come home SAFE!!
