  1. What to bring back from England

    What can you get there that 1. you can't get here, or 2. that is worth much more here than there? I'd say an original Mini. Go for it!
  2. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    And I just heard from the attorney - she visited Gary yesterday, and the document has been printed, signed, and witnessed. [rockon] What a terrific lady!
  3. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    I just got off the phone with the VA; they connected me to the police on site. We got the car put on their Overnight Parking list, so towing won't be an issue. (I'll get it towed to his place at some point soon.)
  4. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    He's only 12 miles away, in Derry. Good point about the towing costs - if that's what happens, I'll just cover the cost myself, it won't be that much.

    Will do in AM. Thanks for the heads-up.
  6. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    Gary lives in Derry, and I believe the car is at the VA facility in Manchester. FYI, we discussed the car today - he's not terribly concerned about what he feels would be a $25 ticket. (I'm more concerned that the car could get towed.)
  7. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    (Off topic: Just to clarify, I'm Don. Our veteran is Gary.) I'm at the hospital now, Gary just went off for an x-ray. He is pretty heavily medicated; he didn't remember we had talked yesterday. He had a visit yesterday, too, from another former coworker, so he's getting some company from...

    Another amazing offer. PM sent. Thank you!!
  9. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    Rat, I think it'd be great if you would reach out to him. As I said in the PM, feel free to blame me if he gets gruff. [laugh] (Let me know if you need his contact info again.). That's incredibly generous of you, and I appreciate it deeply.
  10. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    @ old goat, I phoned the hospital today and they connected me to Gary's social worker. She said they don't offer that service there and that a will would have to be drafted by an attorney. @ Len 2A-Training, I got a late start, and haven't connected with KM yet. (I'll keep trying.) Edit - I...

    PM sent. That's an awesome offer, thank you, sir!
  12. Req. help for a Marine in his final days

    I worked with Gary for about ten years before he retired. He's about five-foot-nothing, and since he was the smallest guy in his platoon in Vietnam, he carried the machine gun. Since the day I met him his life has been hell. I'll spare the details, but what he's been through medically I...
