Disabled Vets stolen cues - 01-22-2014, 11:40 PM

I am a disabled veteran from the Iraq war and I found my greatest solace after returning home and having trouble walking and standing to be shooting pool. Shooting pool was the greatest thing that helped me to advance in my recovery. I used a 4K-4 cue,a z-2 shaft , a 314 fat shaft,a z shaft and a BK-2 with the sport grip in a black Vincitore black leather cue case.The cues were my saving grace as it and I were as one and I would spend time on end standing and walking around the table shooting pool which actually helped me to regain strength and courage to continue instead of giving up.
The situation took a turn for the worse when my case containing my cues was stolen while I was in the bathroom. I am unable to replace them due to my now very limited income. Or to offer any kind of significant reward. Please keep your eyes open for them.

Please post this to any and all forums as I need this information passed around

Virgil.. Thank you for your service.. Please send me your address and I will send you a Predator Roadline Cue I have.. The cue is like new but it has a Samsara unilock shaft with it which matches the cue very nicely.. Maybe someone will offer a Predator unilock shaft to match the cue.. I will try to find one for you in the meantime.. I do have a Z shaft in a 3/8-10 I would trade for a unilock to make your cue complete.. Again, thank you so much for your service..

Cue Stolen - 01-23-2014, 03:34 AM

Very sorry to hear this...


Where and when did this happen?

The info could help spread this theft around town.

I have some freinds (Retired Vets) that live in that area.

Thank you for your service sir.

You are the man bud!

I am curious as to what poolroom or bar this happened at in Arizona though.

I wish there weren't recent scams here on az because they cause me to think you might just be one more of those trying to play on our kindness and sympathy. That's the street-smart, skeptic in me.

Why don't you post who you are (name, etc), and as Lenny asked, where did this theft take place? Was there a police report filed? And yes, were there cameras where this happened?

If what you are saying is true, you have come to the right place. Likely, there will be people, including myself, who would be interested in getting you fixed up.

We'll just have to know more first since you are a brand new poster here.

One other question: Can any known az member vouch for you and your story?

thx,
brian kc

Dan;

just saw your kind offer - real nice of you, Sir.

Given the many recent scams on here, this brand-new posters story, while possibly true, is causing red flags to pop for me.

I would proceed with caution and at the very least I would suggest finding out more before sending out any equipment.

Reminds me of Ronal Reagan's famous saying: "Trust, but verify."

Being a former army infantryman, if this guy's story is true, I'd be interested in helping, also.

But I will have to know *for certain*.

green rep to you, Dan, for your kindness.

best,
brian kc

If this is legit...I'm on board to help out a bit, too.

I pulled 3 tours there, came home with less than I went with, and I have a soft spot for those who sacrificed so much...

Staying tuned for intel, and happy to try to make the OP whole again.

Virgil, If you are legit I would like to thank you for your service. There have been many scam's here on AZB. I want to make sure first that everything that you have said here is true . The AZB community has many veterans and just great people in general. I don't post here much but I think I can speak and say that you came to the right place for help if what you say is true. I

have been to Iraq and I am currently in AFG Logar Providence with 10th Group Special Forces-ODA 0323. If what you say is true Virgil You can count on me to help out . I have some stuff back home that I don't use anymore and I will get my wife to send it to you if everything checks out . Again thank you for your service . Tim

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I work in Tombstone several days a week.
Please post the location info for where your cues were stolen. If I am personally able
to confirm your loss with some others at the location your cues were stolen I would be happy
to give you a new Cue case. I will also post my findings to the forum which if confirmed I am sure
will open up some generosity of others. Thanks for your Service to our Country.
