May 8, 2010 Special Event Station W4W

Had a great time today operating Special Event Station W2W at the benefit for SSgt Jason Letterman of the 3rd ID who was wounded in Iraq and lost both of his legs.  The benefit was held at Red Gate Farms here in Savannah and it couldn't have been a better venue.  Lot's of live music and food as well as volleyball and horse shoes.  Laura Mackey was a gracious hostess.  A group called Homes For Our Troops ( is raising funds to build SSgt Letterman and his family a handicap friendly home.  What a worthy fundraiser this was.  We set up our station and operated from about 10:00am til 7:00pm and spoke with folks all across the country who asked us to pass on thier appreciation to SSgt Letterman's service and sacrifice.  Thanks to Steve-K4SDJ, Lester-KF4JBQ, Kevin-KW4B, Jere-KT4ZB, and all those who made contact with us.  Learn more about SSgt Letterman at
