Fragg to fellow Vet's.

To any vet in the Cleveland Ohio area: I will give you a free fragg to help establish a reef or add to an established system. (U.S.S. Belleauwood LHA-3, west-pac 89). Need to pick up and swap sea stories. I can be found in the Northern Ohio Reef Keepers in the Club forums as an active user.

One of the coolest things I have seen. I hope this takes off.
Not a vet myself but I have so much respect for our veterans.
Thank You for your service!!

puffster, I think i'll be hitting you up when I get a tank up and running! In the process of reacquiring equipment.

Just moved to Cleveland from South Dakota, been out of the hobby for a few years while in school out there (pretty difficult to get into reefing in western SD)

4 years active Marine Corps. Did a west-pac in '07 on the USS Denver

Great idea! Wish I was back in the States sometimes. It's challenging setting up a reef aquarium when you speak little to no Japanese.

I never left the States, but did a workup aboard the Denver. She's out to pasture now, though.

I am currently an active recruiter for the USAF in Lansing Michigan ( about 3 hrs from Cleveland. I deployed in 2007 to camp bucca Iraq, and all over the horn of Africa Djibouti, Ethiopia and Tanzinia in 2009. I just filled my 54 Gallon Corner tank two days ago I'm hoping to add some green chromis to start my cycle on Sunday ( pending the cloudiness goes away) if I make it down to Cleveland I may have to get in touch with you! FYI this is a truly awesome idea you have going here thank you for all of the support

I spent a little time on the LPD-9 in 03-04 with 1/4.

And yes, it really is a small world, though I haven't been able to get in touch with anyone from 1/4, I've found many of my MCSFCo brothers.

Hey there! I am in Dayton @ WPAFB. This is an amazing idea BTW. I travel frequently to MI (Lansing, Grand Rapids, Alpena, Detroit), so one of these trips we should meet up for some coffee @Fish4ead & @Cameron2324.
