Daily Afternoon Randomness in HQ (39 Photos)

Hey Chive,

We are part of a nonprofit called All Hands Volunteers that does disaster response both in the US and around the world. This is our uniform here in the Philippines πŸ™‚ We help people clean up, repair and rebuild after communities are destroyed by natural disasters. We have volunteers from all over the world come to help the communities where we work, Hands.org.

We need the Chivers’ help today. Toyota is giving away one Toyota Tundra truck a day to charity. We’re up today and currently in 3rd place overall in the Facebook voting. We really need this truck to replace our current crappy disaster response vehicle. You’re the kindest community on the internet and if you read this in time, John, bring the Chive effect. Thanks for your time.

John: Let’s get these amazing Chivers their truck, Chivers. Vote right here.

      Please, my girlfriends birthday is coming up and there is a contest to which she can in tickets to front row passes and a meet and greet with a band she loves(which i hate…). But nothing is more special to me than to see her smile so I am going out on a limb… a simple like to this page (http://www.q102.com/common/shareme/index.php?linkid=i5xj0v7bsifycfmhxvcuu3a27o) and you would have helped me through a huge journey to get my love a birthday gift of a lifetime to a sold out show.. I can't explain how grateful I will be to those who take the time to make my girlfriends wish come true. Thank you.

      Thank god I saw #36 in the top 10… Honestly things like this should be the "FIRST" posts that trolls post. The internet would be a better place if it were so.

      PS – Any Boston chivers/chivettes that want a Men's Med DAR shirt I still have an extra one (with packing slip). Ordered it for a friend who got one himself. Willing to part with it for what it costs on the site+shipping… not a ridiculous ebay price or anything. Drop me a message on my FB or something.

      • Der Freischütz

        Thank you for that story.

    • Jared

      Same here, I was scrolling through and had to pause on this one and take a deep breath.

    • BloodScrubber

      Sad yes, but uplifting in that it shows true emotion. Respect to those that serve, those that made the ultimate sacrifice and to those loved ones left behind.

    • Chris

      Manhasset is a few towns over from where I live on Long Island. This photo is very sad.

    • Rob

      So true, I had to keep going back also. FYI, That is his fiancee laying there.

    • Tillman61

      Thank you for saying what I felt. The old gentleman telling his tale got me going and this just slammed my heart.

      Any past and present service men and women who might happen to read this string – Thank You – to you and your families.

    • Paul

      I'm going to hell for thinking she's hot and available..

      • Just a dude

        Maybe/Maybe not but your a true piece of shit if that's the first thing that crossed your mind.

      • KeepinCalm

        man…you are a piece of work, ….i mean shit.

      • https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=722809282 Oliver Vorian Wang

        You, sir, just told the truth.

      • Zan

        I understand what trolling is and who trolls are. I sincerely hope that you are merely that. A troll, trolling. If so then, meh. Ignore the troll.

        If not? If you sincerely feel that way and choose to express your interest in that woman at this time on this thread… then fuck you. Now, please don't misunderstand me. This isn't a generic response to a generic troll. This is specifically targeted at you if you really felt that way.

        Allow me to explain.

        A few years ago I served a combat tour in Afghanistan. Canadian artillery. Got shot at, rocketed and received plenty of mortar fire. I was never hit. I returned with no physical wounds.
        However, the gripping fear I had with regards to what my wife and kids were going through back home every day of the tour is one of the things about the whole shebang that haunts me to this day.

        That's where I'm coming from when I say to you, in all sincerity… fuck. you.

        I'm pretty quiet on the ol' world wide weberoony. This is the first time I've ever added a comment to a Chive thread (though I've been a loyal Chiver for a veddy veddy long time…) This time I had to speak up.

        From the bottom of my soldier heart… Fuck. You.

    • Stuart

      This girl is crying and grieving and someone snaps a picture of her pouring her heart out? I think that's a scumbag move. Why not take a picture of a girl having a seizure?

      • vandal

        Because we need to see it! It's OK reading about soldiers dieing in the news, that's upsetting but it doesn't impact like this. This is strong shit and had me thinking about the things the armed forced must go through.

      • f0urd3gr33s

        If it makes you feel better, this isn't a random snap. This shot was taken as part of a news piece. I forget where I saw it.

      #36 made me cry a little. I always ask my grandfathers what they did during the war. Nothing bad ass but still important to the country as what I strive to do here on the homefront with my fire company.

      • Guest

        Thank you, Private Sams, and your friend who helped you, for your service. Thank you also to all who served and are currently serving, including Firefighter23. We don't say it enough, especially to those few who are left from WWII, but all of you are appreciated more than we can truly express.

        I was in DC the week before Memorial Day. As we were visiting the Iwo Jima statue three buses pulled up. Two of the buses were filled with junior high school students. The third bus was veterans and their families from Indiana. One of the leaders of the kids group huddled them up and explained about the statue then told them to say hello and thanks to the vets. It was amazing to watch these children going over to the vets, many in wheel chairs, and thanking them for their service and asking them questions. The kids where interested and the vets where obviously touched by the attention.
