This site never ceases to amaze me. I received a PM from someone today. Here's part of it:

I was saving up for a new trolling motor, then I was going to save up for a new depthfinder.
Well some one GAVE me a minn kota maxxum trolling motor so I don't need to buy one now.
I would like to pay it forward. I have a humminbird 581 di GPS depth finder I would like to
give away, it is used but works fine. I want it to go to someone that NEEDS one. And if it is
ok I would like it to go to a veteran, If there are any members that are wounded warriors
that would be my first choice. ....But please tell the winner and all veterans involved,

This gentleman would like to remain anonymous. So please PM me a few details if you know someone.

We have a great site for sure. Thanks anonymous, and thank everyone else that's done something similar.

Oh, this whole thing is gonna be anonymous. The donater, and the recipient as well. I don't want to put anyone on the spot. But I will give out some anonymous details maybe about the gentleman's service (which war kinda thing) or something. We'll figure it out.

This site is a reflection of you Ed. We thank you for all that you do and we thank the person who remembered the service of the veterans to keep our nation free. All gave some. Some gave all.

Done Deal. This is done and closed. The gentleman that will be receiving the FF is a Vietnam Veteran. I'm closing this thread. Thanks go out to all the members of Crappie.com for making this such a warm and caring website.

The recipient has received the FF and responded:

"Got the ff and all kinds good stuff today. This has really humbled me...The quality of our members is just outstanding, what heart's they have. I would love to post a thank you, but you said you wanted it to be a anonymous on the giver and receiver, but please tell who gave this away I think them from the bottom of my heart, it touched me very much.
I did not realize how much money it takes to take an old wore out boat with nothing on it, and get it in fishing shape...Plus replacing all my fishing gear...ha
Those jigs,line and reel will really be used. Those are some great looking jigs, and that reel wow...Thank you so much Crappie.com. Its really a great site...God Bless"
