I think it can vary from 50 to several hundred soldiers, plus their families. The Wheelers send buses out to the various forts to pick up wounded soldiers and their families. If I'm not mistaken, last year there was one fort that denied their people leave. Hard to say how many will actually be there throughout the event.

Hey SA, You can bump my donation up to 2 ounces please. I have just put payment in a envelope to you coming via, T.T.A. AKA Tied To A Turtles A$$ AKA U.S.P.S. Ya'all have a great time at the event, wish I could join in the festivities but the timing is not right with having 2 kids maybe next years or so. East Texas "Longview Area" was my home base while I was overseas.

Another Bump. Currently at 41oz.

THANK YOU to all that have donated so far!

Silver Addict wrote:Bump

We are only at 24oz so far. Tell you what, i'll even accept 1/2oz donations.

I will be making these bars for sale this summer. The price will have a WFTW donation added into the price (prob $5), those that donate silver will have it waived if they buy bars.

It would be nice to have a bar for each wounded soldier again this year, like last.

A huge THANK YOU to those that have donated so far!

Anyone that would like to just buy silver shot from me instead of sending silver, is more than welcome. Unfortunately i bought on Monday before the drop and paid $20.43 an ounce for the shot. But, it is still cheaper than paying postage to send an ounce or two.

We will be making both 1oz and 2oz bars for the event if we get enough donations.

Pardon if this is necro-posting... but will a similar event be taking place THIS april (2015)? and if so, when should I send my silver donation?

Yes, "when", not if, per the signature. For my many faults, I will NOT be found a mere talker, but a by-heaven DOER. And when it has to do with others who have worn the uniform and sworn the Oath, most DEFINITELY doing, lest my father and great-uncles come on up out of the grave and come after me. (Father had to sit and watch as the Berlin Wall was being built... thru the periscope of his tank. My great-uncles were at Normandy, one as a turret firecontroller on a destroyer bringing 11" naval fire down on the Atlantic Wall, the other driving Higgins boats onto Utah Beach.)

The main event is focused on the soldiers and their families. It's not a fundraiser. In 2013 we raised silver donations and made bars to give directly to the soldiers. Last year we made stars and auctioned them off before the event with the money going to the WFTW.

What would ya'll prefer? Make bars and raffle them off to the soldiers? Or make bars and sell them for donations? Or something different?

You are correct. The square ones. I forgot. We could do those again.

I'm up for the squares. Lemme know where and when to send the silver to. ( Four of my marlins, if any one is curious: one from me, one on behalf of my father, and one on behalf of each of my great-uncles.)

Might also drop my favorite LSU president's boss in with the silver.
