Operation Black Sheep
I am raising money to restore PBR 7331. 7331 is a Vietnam era boat and is one of the less than 40 PBRs in the US. Out of that 40 roughly a dozen are operational, out of that dozen only four see water every year. PBR 7331 will be a 40-hour a week spring-fall operational boat for the community and veterans to go out on and enjoy. I also want to provided a place were veterans can gather and make new friends. Friends who can support each other throw hard times.
This means a lot to me because our Vietnam Vets deserve more then they have ever gotten. I want to provide an opportunity to celebrate who they are and what they did. One way or another I will make this happen. I want to show them that they are the real greatest generation for doing what they did with such little support. They deserve so much more and I want to take them out on the water to hear their story and show them that people do care.
I am thankful for anyone who is willing to help this cause. I am also thankful for those who gave so much and received so little in return and am glad that I can get to know each and every one of them.
This is much more then a boat that will just sit like a museum piece. PBR 7331 will be in the water for all to enjoy with certain days just for veterans. Steve has showed pride, told stories to his daughter that she never new. The whole time that he spoke she listened with pride that her dad clearly felt for a long time .
We need your help to complete our mission. With what we received so far we have stretched to the max. However this is still a lot more to go before we can completely the mission. Please help us, we need you to help give back to our veterans. They deserve this and so much more. Steve is just one veteran, think of the many we can reach when they are able go out on a ride and find some piece and pride like Steve has.
