I'm hiding the personal info, but this just popped up on local craigslist and I thought it was too cool!

I own a local Gardening/Landscaping business in the Redding area, and would like to offer my services FREE to a family with an overseas family member, or a disabled Veteran.
This is just my way of saying THANK YOU! for your services. If you or someone you know can use my services, please contact me. I have room in my schedule for 1 home on a weekly basis. May be able to do 2 homes depending on the size.
Thank you for keeping us safe!

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!

I give the law enforcement discount to anyone in uniform, 50% to be exact they deserve it not only do they put thier lives on the line so that we can continue to wheel but they don't get a whole lot of $ for it.

Oh and I don't even tell them I'm doing it, I just get a funny look out of them when I tell them how much. I'm sure they get it once they look at their receipt.

My friend works for the county and sends me the list of available jobs at the county.  I have to feel bad for leo's when I see how little they start out at :shake: 

I actually thought this may have been an ad placed by an old friend until I saw the name and location.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. "

That is cool that someone would be that willing to help.  This country needs more of that instead of anti-war propaganda.
