I just set my tank up a few months ago. Now I am in Florida for 3 months. Is there anyone in the phoenix valley that could take a look at my tank?

Currently in San Antonio. Spent 8 years in the AF and got out, and am now finishing up an Army ROTC program. Will get my Army commission (AF wouldn't take me back, LOL) in December of this year.

More importantly, I am a reefaholic!!!!!

My wife and I are active duty in virginia, hampton roads area. There is a pretty well established local group for reefers here. Anyone new to the area can send me a pm and I'll give you the site to connect to fellow reefers and get to know some people.

Not military and not a vet, but I think this is a great idea.

I'm one of the founding members our local club and I would say that it's a safe bet that almost any club that you contact would be willing to help out. I know that ours would.

Did ~7 years, and am a current DoD Civ. I love the idea. I can recall each tank break down and move...

What more did you have in mind?

While not in military, I have several friends who are, and like many non-military folks, I always try to go out of my way to help those that serve.

In fact, just bought current tank from a public servant moving back to the state.

I'm in a job that requires me to move around a lot, and I have similar questions. I am currently in PR, so any of you Navy/Coast Guard folks are here, I can tanksit for you. Not appropriate for me to "join", but feel free to IM me if there is a need here in PR.

I don't know. I was just thinking the same thing. Most of us are spread out at this point but without a list of some sort we aren't doing much good....

sorry everyone for the lack of posting, I have been busy but still pursuing getting an official club up and running, its proving a little difficult trying to organize everyone by area and see which areas have ample people interested etc..but the good thing is its not impossible...hang in there and hopefully soon I will have more info and maybe even a website to follow soon..

This thread has already helped, I contacted one of the people that posted from my area and he is going to help me out while I am TDY. We need to find a way to collect area lists or something to help others out.
