Announcing a new Meetup for No BS Just Jeeps Virginia Beach!

What: Charity Fund Raiser for Injured Police Officer

When: June 20,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Hey Guys,

Officer Sean Flemming was heading home from his shift at the Chesapeake Police Deptment in his Green Jeep Wrangler.

That's when he snapped on his radio, heard "shots fired," and followed the pursuit as the van crashed on a ramp to Interstate 64.

When a man emerged from the van, officers said the first thing he saw was Fleming, still in uniform, behind the wheel of his Wrangler. Wielding an assault rifle, the man fired, flattening two of the Wrangler's tires, shattering its headlights, and leaving about a dozen bullet holes in the windshield.

Still inside the vehicle and hit four times, at least once through a bulletproof vest, Fleming managed to fire at least eight shots back through the windshield before pulling himself out, officials said.

"The whole Jeep was peppered with automatic gunfire," said Sgt. Robert Watson, one of Fleming's supervisors. "It was shot to bits. It was unbelievable he came out with only four wounds after that many rounds coming at him. "

Fleming was pulled to safety by four officers and flown to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, where Tuesday he was in stable condition after undergoing surgery. The suspect with the automatic weapon, Christopher White, was killed by Fleming, according to a news release. His superiors said the new officer will be nominated for the medal of valor. from Pilotonline.com

So, I want to do something to help our fellow Jeeper and Local Police Officer. I have discussed it with the Assistant Organizers and we have come up with doing a Car Wash / burger & hotdog sale.

Brenton has talked to the Sears at Pembroke and we are set for that location. I am going to Hooters at General Booth to see if they would like to be involved. If I can get them to commit, I will go to other local Hooters to see if they would like to contribute as well. I think that would be a great way to get a big turn out. If we have a ton of Jeeps there and Hooters Girls helping to wash cars and sell food/drinks, we could raise a ton of money. If you know anyone who would like to come out and lend a hand or you have a way to help promote this by all means, be my guest. The bigger the turn out the better.

Please come out, help wash a few cars, cook a few burgers and dogs, and help a local hero "Get his Jeep on" once again. I am bringing my pressure washer and a few buckets. Bring whatever you feel can help out with the effort. i.e. soap, rags, food, water, you name it. It is all for a great cause.


We are going to be doing this from 10am to 4pm. I will be there all day but any time you want to stop by and lend a hand for a while would be great. Thank You.
