The USO is a very big supporter of the troops

These are two websites that came up when I did a google search, but I don't know anything about them...

So much love for someone most may have never met in person, but found comfort in his words.

Rest in Peace John

Rest in peace, John. It was a pleasure to read your contributions to the forum over so many years. My condolences to family and friends left behind.

Thanks to everyone for your good thoughts for my brother. His wife, my other brother, John's children, et al. and I are grateful.

I joined this forum today because I mostly just wanted to say thanks, and talk a little bit about his request for care packages. Someone posted some good links, and if you want more personal contact with troops, http://www.anysoldier.com is a place where you can read letters from troops with specific requests and details of what their daily lives are like. I personally have sent stuff using this site. This is a trusted way to get your care packages into the hands of individuals and not organizations, if that's the way you roll.

My brother talked a LOT about his car, and about this forum. I was touched to hear of the group's acknowledgement of his passing. He loved his car, and his widow does too.

And now that I'm here, I might just have to stop drooling over the updated Beetle and consider buying one... will another Cox go TDI? Stay tuned....

Haha, we would be most happy to have you on board the forums as a future fellow TDI owner! Welcome!

At least by joining now you beat the institution of the new razing initiation rule. Don't worry, it doesn't involve YOU, just breaking-in your tight new TDI (just kidding).

Hello John's brother...welcome to Fred's. I don't know if you found us over at The Small Print, but you are welcome to visit over there too....

http://forum.thesmallprint.org/index.php#1

John spent quite a bit of time over there and we miss him very much. I still can't believe we will never hear from him again...

All the sentiments previously expressed above.

You're welcome to be here too even if you do just think about getting one. Someone named "Derf" was here for many years before buying one.

if it counts any, my first car was a 68 Beetle <3 and I also drove (into the ground) a Rabbit and a Golf GT. I currently drive a Toyota Camry LE, V6... but am eyeing the Prius. Big Brother questioned that in his last few days, and I had to tell him that my next car would be a hybrid, and I think he said, "no diesel?"

But I'll do my homework so I don't sound like the Biggest Newbie In The World, a serious crime in our family. :-)

Mary, no worries. As an editor, I should know better than to be ambiguous in print!
