    Family of our fallen among our members

    Some of you got to meet Caroline and Ryan at the last meeting. Ryan's father, Army SSG Rudzinski, was killed by an IED when Ryan was just 13 months old. Now Ryan is 7 and he wants a reef tank. Xsocali is donating a bow front tank, Morrisjtja is donating some rock. I won them a nem and some frags in the meeting auction, and of course I'm going to be hooking him up with RO Water, food, other frags, etc..

    Tonight Fox 21 ran a story on Caroline and Ryan, showing them doing Taekwondo, which is what Angels of America's Fallen supports Ryan in. The story really captured the very bittersweet mission of Angels of America's Fallen. May was Caroline and Christopher's anniversary month, so it is an emotional time for Caroline. She and Ryan did great in the interview. Check out the video http://fox21news.com/2016/05/06/mom-...their-soldier/

    It's going to be great seeing Ryan get his tank going. Thanks to those who are pitching in to help him!

    Good Idea. Maybe start a thread for Ryan and list what he has and needs. I'm sure between all of us he can get up and running.

    Yes, their tank isn't ready, but I can keep it live for them. Monday and Thursday are booked solid for me. When would work the best for you?

    Ryan has his account on here as Bubbles. I spent most of the day yesterday with him and his mom, and other local kids we support. We were at the Big Dog Brag mud run, and then at Freddy's afterwards.

    Ryan and Caroline will be out of town most of the summer, so I will collect the hardware when it is ready and the tank won't be set up until they return.

    I have a meeting at 10:00 in the north east. I could probably be there around 11:45. Does that work?
