Thank you for reposting this here. The very least we can do for this guy is spend one second a day to click a button after what he did for us

I am 100% in support of our armed service...... But I am more concerned that the car owner has not seen his family in 5 years, needs to win this free road trip so he can drive his modified Camaro from TX to NorCal. Just doesn't sound right ?!?

Really guys? It took me 30 seconds to vote and 15 seconds more to find his picture..
The guy just wants to win a road trip for his family, I honestly would like to think that you guys didn't read his post, so here it is:


Hey guys. Im trying to win the Nationwide Insurance competition so that I can take my family on a road trip from Texas to Northern California to visit family and friends. We haven't been back home in many years and would love to finally get back. I was combat wounded in Afghanistan 2 1/2 years ago and there are a lot of people that supported my through everything that I would love to go back home to and thank in person as well as just see family and friends. I have 4 kids and a service dog so flying is pretty expensive. Im trying to stay active duty so it would be nice to go on a trip before i go back to work after my recovery is over. Voting ends on Nov 3rd and you can vote once a day. Right now I am way behind the leader and its just a Lancer. I think a Camaro can do better than that . Thank you for the support and please pass the word so we can win this

The presentation above by the OP was poor. Your post is what I would have preferred to see from the get go. He has my vote.

Thanks for the clarification.

Dude calm down a bit. With all the scams and bs that happen on the Internet people are little untrusted about things like this. I really appreciate the sacrifice and what you have done for our country, but a true warrior doesn't play the victim card, which you are starting to do. Ease up, it was just a misunderstanding.

I am a Vet as well AND an IT expert. One of the calling cards of scammers is all caps and bad grammar.

THAT is why so many of us were skeptical. After christianmotox's post, it became clear that this is NOT a hoax. So calm down and accept our votes now.

I have served the last 17 years on active duty and did three combat tours. My grip wasnt with the service member but with the way it was presented. I have seen a lot of BS emails over the years since the wars started and asshmed this was another one. I voted...he just needs a better pitch man who doesnt yell in text with all caps.
