Financial goals achieved! Thanks, everyone, for your generosity in supporting TAH. Without your help this place coundn’t continue, and that would be unthinkable. So thanks again, and expect me to rattle the cup again next year as a gentle reminder.

    Already done

  2. Ex-PH2 says:

    Sent him something last week in the mail.

  3. Beaker says:

    Sent some cheddar. I love reading this site on the daily.

  4. IDC SARC says:

    Celer Silens Mortalis!

  5. AnotherPat says:

    Guidance from Jonn:

    “If you send us a check or money order, please put my name in the “For” line. I have two money orders I can’t cash because because the check is written to “TAH Admin”. So you spent $100 for two pieces of paper in my file cabinet.”

      Lois Lerner wants them back

    • rgr769 says:

      Sounds like some retarded reverse examples of the story about the rich uncle who wanted to be buried with all his money in the casket with his corpse, so his niece (his sole heir) consolidated all his money in one checking account and then tossed a check for the full balance into his coffin just before he was buried.

  6. Dan Johnson says:

    Done. Monthly.

  7. RM3(SS) says:

    Monthly allotment to Jonn’s cigar and whiskey fund straight outta my VA comp. I highly encourage other to do so, those Cubans aren’t cheap ya know!

  8. AW1Ed says:

    I walk the walk as well- donate monthly, and squeeze in some extra love during crunch time.

    And rattle the cup when Jonn, who jumped out of airplanes for a living, is a bit skittish about actually directly asking for some help in running the place.

    Good thing this Squid is here. Now dummy up, Dick Weeds!

    And thanks.

  9. Claw says:

    Done. No T-Rat Lasagna for supper tonight.

    Keep those road wheels greased.

    “Top Of The Rock”

    • AW1Ed says:

      Patton had a suggestion about keeping tracks greased, and it wasn’t MILSPEC.

      Thanks Claw.

  10. NHSparky says:

    Done. Not as much as I’d like, but what I can, when I can.

  11. Atkron says:

    I’m going to have to wait until next Thursday, when I get paid again.

    But, I most definitely will donate as much as I can afford.

    Teenage boys are locusts….

    • AW1Ed says:

      Dear God. Raised two- keep hands and feet clear of the table at feeding time. Plunk down the plates and step away…

      • Claw says:

        Same here. Raised twin boys. Drank two gallons of milk a day.

        Had a gallon pickle jar sitting on my desk in the S-4 shop that was labeled:

        “Feed The Claw Kids”/smile

      • SFC D says:

        I have a 13 year old boy, and between shoes and food, he’s depleted the Jeep/gun fund for the next few years.

  12. FatCircles0311 says:

    Brb printing out my bitcoins.

  13. OldSoldier54 says:

    Thanks for the heads up, AW1Ed. I would’ve missed that on the WOT.

    Back to the 116 degree garage …

  14. Nicki says:

    When I was in dire straits, Jonn offered to help big time. Wish I’d known earlier. Would have helped earlier.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Any port in a storm? Do what you can, if you can, and thanks.

      (there’s a story here that I would like to hear. Jonn?)

  15. AnotherPat says:

    Thank You for doing this, AW1Ed.👏👏👌👌😊

  16. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Dropped some major coin Jonn’s way.

  17. HMC Ret says:

    I gave last week and will gladly do so again. This stuff is. other depressing and hilarious. I particularly love those with NDSM (V) and SS (V) among other things.

  18. A FrogMom says:

    Done. Thanks for the reminder.

  22. MrBill says:

    I knew there was some expense involved, didn’t realize it was that much. Am overdue with my contribution, will rectify post haste.

  23. nannybear says:


  24. AW1Ed says:

    Morning, Delta Whiskeys- mug of coffee and a big thanks for donating.

    Keep it coming!

  25. Commissioner Wretched says:

    Happy to note I’ve sent my contribution … and I strongly encourage others to do so as well.

    Thank you, Jonn, for letting me post my silly column in the WOT each week.

  26. Hack Stone says:

    Hack Stone will be making a donation in memory of Elaine Ricci. May God bring her back to our warm embrace.


  27. sj says:

    Did Dan contribute?

    • sj says:

      Never mind. I just remembered that Dan is probably exempt because of his sizable Bernath Bucks donations a few years ago that got Jonn and TSO new rides and a hot dog suit.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Did a certain “commissar” contribute?

    • NHSparky says:

      I was just gonna ask if purple jumpsuits and soiled spandex could be considered donations in kind, but how would you get the MD 20/20 stains out?

  28. Mick says:

    Sent in my contribution a couple of weeks ago.

    Keep up the good work, Jonn (and the rest of Team TAH, too)!

    Semper Fidelis.

  29. RGR 4-78 says:

    Check mailed this morning.

    Thanks for letting me hang out here.

  30. CWORet says:

    Done. Thanks for the EWS, AW1Ed . Saw it on the WOT and promptly forgot. CRS syndrome I guess… Wet and dreary down in ‘Ret land. Can’t do any yard work… WHOO HOO!

  31. Garold says:

    I don’t know what the deal is but it won’t let me put in a dollar amount.

  32. UpNorth says:


  33. AW1Ed says:

    Thanks, everyone for the help. Just heard the good news from the boss; thanks to your generosity this year’s TAH fund drive is closed. Really impressive how you folks dug down to donate, and it’s money well spent for both supporting the SV mission and the (mostly) good natured joshing that occurs here daily.
    Until next time,
    AW1Ed out.

    • CWORet says:

      And thanks to you for your efforts. Your ‘Hey MFr’s ‘ post kicked me again this year. Remind me again next year because I’ll forget…

    • OWB says:

      So does that mean I can put a stop pay on the check that’s in the mail????

      (Just kidding. Really!)

      • AW1Ed says:

        Check is in the mail, I love you no shit, and the Duty Driver is on the way, Sir.

        Which is the greatest lie from an Assistant Squadron Duty Officer (ASDO)?


  34. Roh-Dog says:

    Next time I’ll be more on time and hopefully have the financial backbone to shoulder more…!
    Congrats to the heavy-lifters and the whole TAH fam.

  35. AnotherPat says:

    👏👏👏👏 for AW1Ed’s FIRST! “Blogthon”…

    AW1Ed: The Founding Father and the orginator of FIRST! on TAH’s Weekend Open Thread. 😉

    Well done, Matey. Well done.

    Now that the Blogthon is over and Kudos are given, things are back to normal. So…



    One of AW1Ed’s Kids


    • AW1Ed says:

      Heh. Kind of hard to reply to all that, so I’ll just say thanks, AP.


      And Beat Army!

  36. cato says:

    Always a go to site.
    Informational and the comments are right on and entertaining.
    Great site … great commenters.
    Very pleased to assist your fine efforts.

    Semper Fi

  37. Jonn Lilyea says:

    My heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed. For the second year in a row, you guys picked up our entire annual $6000 bill. I just paid off the last of the legal bills in May – so I’m cruisin’ towards a 2018 in the black, for the first time since TAH started. Thank you!!!
