Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: The Photo below is and will be a one of a kind item
that would show by wearing it, that you were a member
of the Armed Forces of the United States Army and
served at Rhineland ZOO Ettligen Germany, 7th
Brigade, 78th Engineer Battalion and service to your
country.

Lou Gillespie and Jack Kilpatrick are very excited
that they were able to get a company that was willing
and able to produce this specialty item to our
specific requirements. This ring was never going be
offered to any (ZOO) 78th members or anyone else. To
Us, a Dream Come True!
They will be produced out of stainless steel to keep
cost affordable.

The more members that commit to the purchase of this
beautiful Battalion Ring the better opportunity the
members will have in getting a cost reduction based
upon quantity. Please give us a commitment of whether
you would honestly buy at least one if we have these
created. Lou and I will have at least two made no
matter what the cost. The price will be very high
compared to what we will be able to purchase these
for if we have at least 10 orders, hopefully there
will be more of the 78th members that will commit to
a purchase of at least one ring. We have finally
received a price quote of $129.00 for the purchase of
a minimum of 10 Rings; the $350.00 fee has already
been waived because of this. The manufacture has
implied that we could get a real good cost reduction
if we can get purchase commitments of at least 30-40
rings, again the more the better it is for all. We
dont know exactly how much the cost savings will be
at the 30-40 ring number but we are requesting for it
to be around $100.00 or less. So for us all, the hope
is that there are at least 30-40 or more of the 78th
Engineer battalion members who have served previously
at the ZOO that they would commit to owning one of
these beautiful reminders to wear proudly as one who
served at Rhineland Kaserne, Ettligen Germany in the
7th Brigade, 78th Engineer Battalion.
Please contact Lou Gillespie or Jack Kilpatrick if
you are interested in purchasing this one of a kind
item.

Contact Lou Gillespie ( information is on the next
page) if you have questions regarding purchasing one
of these rings . PayPal Accounts  Keep in mind all
transactions are secured and insured through PayPal.

After it has been determined how many members would
like and commit to the purchase of this ring, the
figurer will be presented to the manufacture. Next we
will negotiate the new terms based on that
information. After the terms of the cost of the ring
are agreed to I will present that information to all
of the members. Once this has be accepted and agreed
to by all, then and only then we will move forward
with placing our order. Please keep in mind the more
we order the less the ring could cost and with
todays economy a savings is a savings!
A note from the Manufacture: if any rings are to be
ordered after this order they will be subject to the
350.00 fee because the order is less the minimum
order of 10 which will drive the cost up per ring!
Thats why it is so important to get on board with
the first order.

For all members who will purchase this unique ring I
will need the following information from you.

1.   Valid e-mail address so I can send youre an
invoice for your purchase

2.   The quantity of the items you wish to purchase

3.   The ring size of each item purchased must be
accurate! We want you to be happy with your purchase.
If you have any doubts about your ring go to any
place that sells jewelry and have your finger sized
properly. The rings cannot be returned so please do
youre best to be accurate.

PayPal will e-mail you the Money Request!
