Shout Out to Hotmetal!
me | today | me

Posted on 05/22/2012 8:01:09 PM PDT by waterhill

Give a shoutout/p.m. to Hotmetal(a FReeper in Afganistan). He needs us right now. Its lonely and desolate over there. Please p.m. or leave a note here. Sorry, brotherman, but I had to let everyone know. We got your back. I posted this for you and all your buds.

Hey dude, we love you! At least me and Carrie do!

Come home safe, brotherman!

My offer stands forever! Prayers up, Soldier! God Speed.

I would appreciate a 'howdy' to Hotmetal from y'all Freepers, and so would he.

Thanks

Waterhill: Thanks for taking time to post this and allow us an opportunity to brighten a soldier’s day!

Hotmetal: I hope this reaches you well! You hang tough out there and come home safe - we all want that. My son just got back from Iraq/Kuwait and I can’t get enough of seeing him. You take care, be well and take some solace in the fact that there are countless people here in the USA that appreciate everything you do for us. Godspeed to you!

Hotmetal, my thanks to you and everyone you serve with.
My own service was pretty cushy, back before the first Gulf War, so I can't really pretend to know the hardship that Afghanistan must be.
Just know that what you are doing is appreciated. Myself, my wife, and my kids get to do what we do because of what you do.

No big deal on my part, I just ask that you adress Hotmetal in this thread instead of me. He is a FReeper who has given alot more than most of us. He deserves our thanks and respect. So please pm or post to Hotmetal, and not me.
Thanks.

From this father of a U.S. Army Soldier who has two tours under his belt, I send my heartfelt thank-you to you, Hotmetal, for your service and sacrifices for the benefit of those of us here at home. I’m not sure which branch you’re serving with, but you should know that you have many FReepers who support you and your mission. Situational Awareness always.

SoldierDad.

Every time I see or hear people whine about the littlest chickensh@t things, I think about you guys. As I'm sure y'all have come to understand, this is the most spoiled rotten brat country on the planet! That's putting it as mild as I can here.

May God Bless each and every one of you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service.

Hotmetal, I pray you the patience of Job! IN JESUS' NAME! If you need something and I can send it, send me a Freepmail. It will be done.

Godspeed to you guys getting your butts home in one piece. (Muy Pronto!) I'm thinking that we're going to need y'all here pretty soon.

To the millions of tit-suckers, whiners and crybabies back here stateside I say:

Hey there, fellow Freeper! :D

I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through and what it must be like over there but please know how much I appreciate what you’re doing and what you sacrifice to do it. Don’t think for one moment you’ve been forgotten!

How about a laugh at my expense? Would that help?

Okay, so I got the bright idea I would learn to drive a dump truck. Seemed like a good skill to have and the thing just sits there most of the time. Visions of hauling my own gravel danced in my head!

So, it has that split shift thingy (the manufacturer probably calls it something else...), you know, with the high side and low side? Heck, I dunno, maybe they all have that... it’s my first dump truck experience.

Now, I pride myself on my ability to pretty much drive anything if someone will walk me through it. I’m kind of like Rainman that way.

So, I get my walk-through from someone with the proper appendage and I’m pumped to get started. Trucker hat? Check. Window rolled down so I can do that truck driver wave ahead thing he does in “Duel”? Check.

And I’m off! Take the county road for about two miles out practicing switching back and forth between both sides. I am sooo kicking butt at this! Turn around and drive the two miles back still practicing. I’m on a roll! Pshaw! What’s all the fuss? This isn’t hard at all!

As I triumphantly make my return, I practice saying, “Aw, shucks, tweren’t nothin”. Made me sort of wish I chewed so I could spit some bakky right after I said it.

However, I did notice a slight smell as I pulled back in. Okay, it wasn’t slight, it was downright permeating. That’s when the person with the proper appendage pointed out I’d just driven four miles in a dump truck with the emergency brake on.

Just try to think about the brunettes at home you’re protecting instead...

Big hugs and lots of prayers to you!

Hotmetal, I want you to know I think about you and all the soldiers often and I talk to God about you. I believe of all the people God has created the soldier comes the closest to the Divine image of His son than anyone. Here you are willing to lay down your most precious gift, your life, to sacrifice it for strangers, people you don't even know. This is the most unselfish act imaginable so I applaud you and lift you up to our Creator for a special hero's blessing, you and all your fellow soldiers. Thank you for being the highest standard of God's creation of man.
Your work shall be rewarded when you hear, “well done, my good and faithful servant.”

How about sending us some dispatches and give us some true knowledge of what’s happening where you are?

We’d be quite interested in that.

Thanks everyone for the “well wishes”. This really made my day.I'm sorry I won't get to reply to each individual post and hope everyone understands. Hearing from great people like y'all that really care and support the military makes me proud.To everyone that asked if I need anything, I don't, I have everything I need as long as there’re folks like y'all back home. I will be home in time to vote, thank goodness, and will be there if the SHTF after the election. Again thanks for all the support and y'all have a blessed day.Sorry if I missed anyone.
