View Full Version : Please Consider a vote for this guys video

02-03-2009, 10:03 PM
Every once in a while something comes along where we can give back to those that give all. There is a giveaway for a Weatherby rifle going on right now and I have viewed many of the videos. There is one that sets out to me. It is a disabled guy asking for his buddy that has been taking care of him for the last 22 years, as he is paralyzed from the neck down. He is on a ventilator and trys to talk at first but then has his nurse translate his statement that he has told her. Many of the video are about "ME" from people that have stories, but not so fitting as this gentleman. You can vote once a day until february 15. Please consider this guys video to vote for.


Below is a post from another friend of his.

heresthedeal asked me to upload and post this picture for him. Here it is, along with the text from the email that was forwarded to me:


This is what heresthedeal wrote:

"here you go, my buddy just sent me this because i told him this was on ar15.com. he called dale and told him about it and dale sent this to erik, and here it is, it was taken almost 22 years ago a week before the accident."


And this is what Dale wrote:

"Here's a picture of me with an AR-15. Tell all the guys thanks so much. Tell them that this picture was taken almost 22 yrs ago. The week before I got hurt. Tell them if I win I will write them all a nice thank you note.

If ever there was a time that one of OURS needed help, this is it. It doesn't cost anything to sign up to vote, and I assure you this is a ligitimate video.
I have spoke with Frank, and Dale through Frank. Please help me with this quest and make it happen for Dale. We are his hands on this.
Thank you.

Voted. He's winning by about 50 votes right now.

Sucks for the other guys. There's no way I'd vote for anyone who wanted it for themselves after watching that.

Thank you all who have voted. Dale appreciates it more than you know. I spoke with his mother and she told me that it is all a buzz in his local area.
The local news station had just left his house when I called. Frank was recently laid off from his job due to the current economic crisis. Along with voting, please keep Dale and Frank in your prayers.

Brutal. And voted.

02-08-2009, 2:54 PM
Voted, I am a Respiratory Therapist and a lot of my patients are trached and on ventilators. This story is all too common, its awesome that he thought of his friend.

02-08-2009, 3:09 PM
Done and let's all try and get back and vote for him everyday.

Try this link instead though it should take you directly to the vote page.

Lets try and keep this thread going too, so we all remember to vote every day, I know tomorrow if it isn't under the "New Post" tab I'll probably forget about it :o

Coming into the fray a bit late, but I've cast my vote in support of this gentleman.

02-13-2009, 9:53 PM

this Friend Frank, You Are The Man! your a rare bird my friend I hope to hell i have what you have when my friends need me.

02-15-2009, 7:47 AM
Today is the last day. Voting ends at 1pm pacific. Please take the time and view the video and cast a vote. The guy in the video was once an AR guy before he had a diving accident and was paralyzed. His friend Frank McDonald has stood by his side for 22 years sharing his hunting stories and selflessly caring for his friend. Frank recently lost his job due to the current economic crisis. He continues to stand by Dales side and help Dales parrents whenever needed. THis is an opportunity to give back to someone who has given selflessly for many years.
Thank you.

Please Vote For Frank!! (http://www.weatherbynation.com/_swf/wiwaw_embed_yt_vp.swf?submissionid=21)
