 ✰ This will be an 800K countDOWN, in increments of 100K. There will be selected tributes during the year like the 9/11 tribute last year. Ideas are solicited.
 
 ✰ Rules are simple: Look for the THREE DOTS (. . .) before you start (or verify the previous poster forgot). End your posts with the THREE DOTS to show you are finished. Limit consecutive posts to 50; no back-to-back posting or tag-team. In case of collision, first poster has right-of-way.       Most of all –     BE COURTEOUS.  Please Post Responsibly.   Starting from 100,000 initially …     99,999 …

* * * FINAL POST * * *

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE COUNTDOWNS THE PAST TWO YEARS. IN 2014 WE REACHED 830,800 (FROM MEMORY - CORRECT ME IF WRONG) POSTS. THE 58,403 POSTS AFTER 800,000 WERE DESIGNATED AS A TRIBUTE TO THE US MILITARY AND CANADIAN VOLUNTEERS WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN VIETNAM. THEY SERVED IN AN UNPOPULAR WAR, AND THOSE WHO RETURNED WERE IN MANY CASES SHUNNED. THEY DESERVE TO BE RECOGNIZED AND REMEMBERED. I AM GOING TO REFRAIN FROM TRYING TO MENTION NAMES - MANY OF YOU I SENT MESSAGES TO THIS MORNING. NOR WILL I SINGLE OUT THOSE WHO POSTED THOUSAND'S & HELPED MAKE GOAL EACH EVENING. WHETHER YOU POSTED ONCE OR OFTEN, THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING. IT'S BEEN FUN. GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS THOSE LOST IN VIETNAM AND THEIR FAMILIES. FOR TWO YEARS WE ALSO PAID TRIBUTE FOR THOSE LOST ON 9/11. NEVER FORGET !!!

I agree with SUVFan's comments here, reinforcing what Beamer previously posted.

THE COUNTDOWN (and COUNT UP) IS NOW CLOSED TO NUMERICAL POSTING. COMMENTS WELCOME....... AND ONLY COMMENTS

Great Job by every buddy, AND

WE WILL REMEMBER...... WE WILL NEVER FORGET

GO BLESS AMERICA, CANADA, AND THE FREEDOMS WE ALL ENJOY.

AND MANY, MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SERVED TO PROTECT THOSE FREEDOMS.

Before we start counting up again, let's remember Beamer's Message Posted: Jan 14, 2015 at 11:37:00 that has been pushed to the second page, that read:

858,403 ...

THE COUNTDOWN IS NOW CLOSED TO NUMERICAL POSTING. COMMENTS WELCOME.

I think the reason Beamer did not ask to have the thread locked was to leave a place for folks to make final comments about the countdown.

I understood the request that there be no more numerical posts to be an attempt to make the tribute to the Vietnam victims a lasting one, in keeping with the "NEVER FORGET' concept.

Great Job Beamer!

Couldn't get here as often as I wanted but I did what I could and I saw that a lot here due to your encouragement.

Thanks for the memories revisited via the Countdown Tributes.

God Bless and All the Best to those who participated and move on from here.

Its been a pleasure & an honor to post here along side all of you who have posted here.

We have posted tributes to the victims of 9/11 and to those who fight & die for the freedoms we enjoy.

I have been amazed how the "troops" have rallied when presented with a challenge & a cause to support....6,230 posts this past 9/11 in memory of those innocent victims who died at the World Trade Center on that horrific date.......AWESOME !!!

Everything about this count down has been filled with superlatives....... Y'a;; are superlative !!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS EVERYBUDDY !!!! AND THANKS

All in all, this has been a very special action we all have done. Without Beamers leadership on info, it problably wouldn't have made this far. As been a honor to have posted everyday.

Well done Beamer and all who posted.

I have enjoyed being a member of this special group as well. Our tributes make us remember those who gave their lives so that the rest of us could enjoy the freedoms that we do. Beamer, your dedication to maintaining the accuracy, history and rhythm of this thread helped make it much more that just a "countdown."

Well done!

It's been my honor and a privilege posting with all of you toward our many goals. Many don't get what this has been about and that's fine. But I truly believe our BeamTeam (that's everyone who posted here whether they ever displayed a BeamTeam avatar or not) is the greatest group of GBs ever assembled.

The collective response to the 9-11 tragedy was truly amazing. And the tribute to the Vietnam victims was a tremendous way to conclude this endeavor.

I look forward to seeing everybuddy in other topics, but this one will certainly be missed.
