Ride for Pride (Fallen ohio solider)
First a little backround, My name is Joshua Nepsa, on June 2, 2007 my 21yr old little brother, a kid, Army Spc. Keith V. Nepsa was killed in action by an improvised explosive device near Qayyarah, Iraq. He died along with one of his good friends(who i will not name as I have not contacted the family). Here is some info about my brother who was just a kid but more of a man than I could dream to be.

Even today two years later as I sit and try to put this up with honor, and being strong....its hard. I am cold, tired, and now hurting again like it just happened... This is why I have to put stuff like this up and hope for support from all of you that can.
If you didnt catch it from reading, my mom was single with 2 boys and a girl. Keith wanted to be a computer tech.... needed college. There was no way we could afford this, so he joined the army for one thing...College money.
Well they pulled his entire platoon out of college for one private's action after less than a semiseter, and they never returned them. We have started a scholarship fund for childeren in the same situation, so that they, unlike my brother, will not have to risk their lives to go to college. We have about 4500-6000 dollars, which we could give away but it would be depleated at that point. If we get it to $10,000 It will roll over every year forever....this is our goal. The next info I post is for a Poker run for this scholarship...THIS IS 100000% NON-PROFIT any and all proceeds go straight to the fund. We have a ton of stuff auto graphed browns and stealers jersey(pomolve or however it is). Stuff from OCC or American Choppers cant remember....and much much more. Cars and bikes welcome.....Anyone who can make it or is close I would love to meet you personally and have you join us for this ride. All of the info will be in the links I provide. If you are seriously thinking about coming PM me and I will get you my pin and cell number so that when you make it here I can shake your hand personally and introduce you to my Mother, and family. Thank you guys in advance. I wanted to post this in another forum as well but I know that some lil ass would say something disrespectful and I would have to hunt him down and kill him....so any how I hope to see you there...

I am bumping this thread to see who all may be attending this function. I am, and also Mule. Anyone else?
I would hope to see all from Ohio that are members of this site at the event. As I know Stiefler feels the same way, it would be nice for all of us in the area to meet, and what not a better cause to do it at. If anybody needs rides, post it! for us that are able, we will try and make arraingements.
