                                                 You gotta be kidding me...!!!



        Just getting back from Florida a few days ago MY WIFE SAID I WAS CRAZY when I told her I needed to distribute 750 Harley Raffle tickets to Our TCCVEV Helpers. This is TCCVEV's MAJOR FUND RAISER and there is info in the flyers. I would really appreciate proving my wife wrong (doesn't happen very often) If a number of TCCVEV Members would drop me a message like, "yeah Bob I can't wait to help sell TCCVEV's Harley Raffle Tickets contact me" (LOL) it would make life less stressful...I am finding that VFW's, American Legion's, places where bikers go, biker events, etc are very receptive to helping us. Typically I like to give tyhem 25 to 50 Harley Raffle tickets,   Please help, even a ticket or two means a lot...thank you

I can be contacted on facebook at the Tri County Council Vietnam Era  Verterans page or my page listed as Bob Kraft. MY Cell  # is (518) 573-1497....Bob Kraft

Here it is...all ready to go home with the winner

We would like to distribute to areas throughout the state…can we add your business & name? If you have Harley Raffle Ticket Helpers I'd like to add them to the list above. If you do just let me know...
This list is "IN PROGRESS" and GROWING….there are more contacts to be added.


"God has eyes" "He sees" and "He knows"

(There are many translations to this)

 This video was taken by some dirt bike riders along the continental divide

in Colorado , who stumbled upon a Vietnam memorial in the woods.

Whoever did it, put a lot of time and money into it. Evidently hunters and

possibly some Vets must be aware of it as there are numerous 7.62,

30.06 rounds and good luck coins on the ledges between the stones.

Who built it and how did it get there? In the middle of nowhere!
