A Note Of Thanks

We received this email yesterday and thought that we should share it with you - the amazing VT community - for making a difference.


I am in the Navy and I wanted to let you know how much reading your website has kept me at least somewhat sane on my deployment from hell. The outdated tin can that I call a workplace pales in comparison to the Vegas palaces that I dream of being at on a daily basis. Perhaps the only similarity of my rusted ship to Vegas is that the nine junior officers I live with share a berthing in the same way broke twenty-somethings from LA pile into crappy Caesars rooms to attend the latest and greatest DJ concerts - sweaty, fraternal, and cramped.

All halfway-kidding aside, reading VT on the daily truly is one of the highlights of my many days at sea. We get thanked a lot for serving, but I could easily give just as many thanks to you, as your wit and information provide the stimulation and excitment that I so dearly need to continue plodding along on the venerable seas of the South Pacific.

Take care and see you in Las Vegas.


Thank you for your sharing your story and thank you for your service in the Navy. Even VT's Canadian coterie thank you. Maybe some of the UK readers too. Not so sure about the French, though.

I'm sure I speak on behalf of all of the VT crew that hearing your story really means a lot to all of us. Our community of freaks has celebrated the greatest times in our lives together and helped us survive through the nightmares. We've made life long friends and we've mourned ones we've lost. We've subjected our health and well being to new restaurants and barfed sea bass all over Wynn's plush casino floor carpeting. In the 10+ years of VT, we've all been there at one time or another where we thought that the party was over, I know I have. What? Over? Did I say all over? Was it over when MGM imploded Caesars Palace? Hell no! It ain't over now. Cause when the going gets tough...

Great email to VT, and great reply from Chuck. Very nice.


Would you guys happen to dock in any regions that have casinos? If possible, I'm sure people would love pics should you be able to take them.

Thanks for your service.

Thank you for your service. I hope to somehow run into you in Las Vegas.

Brendan - THANK YOU for your service. Keep posting and let us know when you are in Vega$. I'm sure many here would like to meet you.
