This sounds like a great time and kudos to Letterkenny for involving families, but with the price of gas, should we really be giving FREE HUMVEE rides??

Good job! Hey folks, perhaps you can find something else to do with your Saturday when Letterkenny closes in the next round of BRAC. Better start working in those resumes now! The Masonic Temple wont be able to help you find a job on the "outside". Looks like you all will have to move up in a company on your OWN merits when you are forced to leave the cushy government ivy walls :)
Nice job

That sounds like a good time

My son and I spent the day at the Army Heritage Education Center in Carlisle. They had displays from all eras of the military - colonial to current - we had a great time. They had an Apache helicopter, tanks, hummvees, howitzers. Their new displays include WWI trenches, WWII bunkers and working on a Vietnam era campsite. We had not been there since last fall so the changes were neat and the continued improvements on the Civil War and colonial sites were great. A stockade similar to the one at Chambers Fort and the French and Indian War cabin are improving.

A good day for kids to learn in a hands on way both at Letterkenny and AHEC.

The Hummers are actually a diesel powered vehicle. Should they charge to attend the event? Some would pay without a second thought , others would pay and complain,and even more wouldn't bother to attend at all. Which would you want?

Hey BillyBob: Sounds like you have a case of the sour grapes...Sitting on your arse in NJ..what's the matter?? Haven't got the motivation to find a job in the government?? Are you too much of a loser?? Can't do a resume? Think it's all peaches and cream??? You Loser...only an idiot would like to see people lose their jobs and bitch about how only masonic members can get a job...I had a job with the government at LEAD. It was a great job, and I don't belong to the lodge, so that pretty much invalidates your stupid rant..Have a nice NJ day you idiot.

I had a good time with my son, but I was very upset with Ramtech because they mislead people to belive that they would have a table set up to receive resumes and not one person knew what anyone was talking about. There was quit a few people who when there for that reason and left not knowing how else to hand in a resume. Visit ramtechincorported.com

Just look at it as an investment in the future. How many of those little kids left with thoughts of serving our country when they grow up?
