A brief essay was Pieter's Idea... as it would be useful for marketing for his company on future advertisements..which is a good idea from his perspective...

however gentlemen, this isn't going to be based on an essay from an English Composition point of view...just let us know why ya would love to go...

If it is going to be a one in a lifetime adventure.. then say so..

that is sort of why you have a couple of veterans and then a pair of guys who have either been there, or in Pieter's case lives there...

don't let those rules intimidate you, if you don't consider yourself Ernest Hemingway or William Shakespeare...

Thanks.. have a guy in PA I'm running this by, as he's been tied down with a disabled kid for 28 years, but the kid died, so he's now free to travel some. Is a custom gun maker, and a vet..

Pieter has also wanted to insist that spouses attend.

Has this been cast in stone? Let's not limit this to married vets, there are many vets that are single for whatever reason and deserving.

an update... we now have 4 contestants...

personally I am glad I am not the one and only decision on this one...If I was a rich guy, all 4 contestants would be going on this trip... or one like it... each one with Pieter tho...not another PH Guide...

so for each of those that want to toss their hat into the ring.. please don't be shy...

thanks

Well Gentlemen...

we now have 10 contestants in the Contest...

and personally I am thankful and appreciate the time and support of my panel of judges for this...

the more entries we get, the definite harder time it gets to pick one more deserving than than the other...

We have 10 very fine gentlemen that have submitted an entry for this once in a life time opportunity...

I would personally like to thank each for their service to our country, but also for taking time to submitting an entry to our contest..sponsored by Pieter here...

a salute to each and best of luck on being the winner...

there are some guys I really stand in awe of...

I'd like to let the Campfire know that we have decided to extend the contest deadline for this great opportunity to September 1.

We are hoping it will give an incentive for those veterans that have been on the fence about 'throwing their hat in the ring' will decide to do so...

right now we have 12 contestants...

If you are thinking about it guys... NOW is the time to act...

an short on essay on why you'd love to go on this trip, doesn't have to be any sort of fancy masterpiece...just tell us your desires...

Best of luck to each one of our contestants and best of luck to any that chose to enter during this 30 day contest extension..

I signed up on here I think 5 or 6 years ago but have only made one post in that time. I have been posting over on Accurate Reloading. Had actually forgotten my log-in here but have spent hours lurking and reading on here.
I was in the Army as a 13Bravo. I spent a year in Camp Casey, Korea. After that I was in the 101st in 2/320th FA. For the uninitiated our motto was (Balls of the Eagle). I deployed with them to Iraq in March 2003. Although Africa has been my dream since I was a kid I feel there are other Veterans more deserving than I am. I feel this will be a great experience for someone. and its very generous of you too offer it. I look forward to seeing the hunt report and pictures

Who is more deserving. They don't mention any requirements in your service. As I told an old Marine, who'd been stationed on an island in WW2 helping get planes landed, and ready to go back out, we all had out job, each one was important. If he hadn't been there, some Marines who need air support might not have gotten it. also, if not in a combat area (probably 99% of military never were/are, during Vietnam only 10% of the Army went there, and only 10% of that was combat/infantry)so only 1% of the Army really saw any combat duty. 90% of the Army especially, is support. clerks, mechanics, truck drivers, etc. IF everyone who wants to signs up, STILL only 2 going to be picked, and might not be you.

SIGN Up, let Pieter and seafire decide. This , someone else is more deserving. Well, even if true, they might not sign up. I thought we'd have 100s of people by now, but last look, wasn't all that many. Let the other guy worry about his credentials, you sign up and worry about yours.

Too bad I only just now saw this. A young Marine I know would have been a great candidate.
Best wishes to the lucky winners and thanks to Seafire and Pieter for their hard work in organization and donation of time and talent.

I'm not an Expert but being that the only price is air travel I'd be satisfied to offer some commercial airline kilometers. Especially, to someone who satisfies the credentials as set forth.

Thanks Pieter and Seafire.
I'm sure my fellow vets will enjoy this.

there are additional costs including insurance, passport fees, firearm and ammo costs, motel and food expenses. Additional might include airfare from nearest airport to ATL or DUL.

this is a big undertaking and I will do my part to help.


Beware of thieves, scammers and dishonest members on the "Fire" classifieds. Ya there is a thief here too. Whatever!!

They're all around the CampFire and everywhere.
