We are now at 66oz!

That means 66 wounded soldiers will receive a silver bar personally given to them. The big event is a great experience and a lot of fun. Something you would never forget. It's May 2nd right here in the heart of Texas Image

Come help us give these bars away.

Yes it is very cool what this group does every year to help our wounded. Just amazing!! :clap: :clap:

EVERYONE is invited to come have an awesome time here in Texas in beautiful Marble Falls. Plenty of nearby very nice hotels and excellent campgrounds/RV spaces. This event is so important and a ton of fun for everyone involved. Bullionstacker has been well represented the last few years and it would be awesome to see more attend. Besides.....you may get a ride in ThunderDuck!

In the past I believe we've had over 100, but we never know until the day of the event. Certain COs have refused to let them go but things have changed for the better. This year might be the highest attendance ever. The WFTW hires buses to pick them up from the different bases and hospitals here in Texas and bring them to the event. Along with the soldiers and their families, there are also hundreds of jeepers that attend and take the soldiers out on the trails.

This thread has some nice pics from last year:

We're now up to 70oz donated! Ya'll are amazing folks. I'm very proud to be a part of this group. :clap:

The main event is less than 2 months away and we'd love to see a big group of bullionstackers attend. It's a rewarding and enjoyable experience, plus we're going to need to some help to give away this many bars. We don't just hand them out. We try to connect with these heroes and let them know that we support them, and appreciate the sacrifices they and their families have made.

The main event in Marble Falls, TX is May 2nd but we'll be out there all weekend starting with the set up on Friday. Feel free to PM me if you'd like more informtion.

As Randy Stated, You all are invited. The support here is amazing. Thank You.

Randy, David, so you don't tell me no, and I know you will, I am posting this here. WFTW would like to donate back $500 to use for this project or future project. We have never in the past had the type of support we have from the military. This year is going to be great. You guys helping us has been one of things that has kept me wanting to do this. Hey Randy, I may be up there on the 11th of April. Not sure yet about 80%

THANK YOU!!!!!

Dan and I had discussed this last month. We felt it would help David with his overhead especially the stamps(s) he has purchased over the years.

This is fantastic! After further discussion, this money will be used to make an additional 30 bars to be given away at this years event.

We're now up to 101 bars! :clap:
