Thread: Very moving letter today
SonnabendGuest06-15-2008, 08:06 AMAh, my bad. I was on a different page. You know, the not having been here for a while and all. Either way, you're still a sexy bitch who doesn't really need depends, but the drooling is a bit of a turnoff :)

Glasses?!? Not even close, I need lasik to fuse coke bottles to my lenses and then I think Inertyl has special scopes they plan on mounting to my face just so I can read the credit card bill the lasik center is going to present me. I'm staring at a bottle of Dr. Pepper right now, and I have no idea what it says! I think Indiana Jones is on the label, but I'm not sure.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

I've given stuff to send the troops, everything from treats to DVD's, but had no idea you could actually send letters and packages to individual troops in the field.
How does one do it? I'm sure there is a screening process, for safety sake.
But how does one go about saying I'd like to sign up to do this? Is there a link or an address?Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

Is there some way we can participate? Like send something from a food website or something to you to send?
I don't know anyone personally who is serving there, but I spent one summer making "cool ties" for troops and for the past 4 years I have been buying Girl Scout cookies as part of "Operation Thin Mint". These cookies get sent overseas. It would be great to do something for someone specific.

You have to fill out a Customs form and list what you have in the box but that is no big deal.
The troops love snacks, magazines, newspapers, toys, and just about anything from home.
The best thing to do is get a hold of a group in your area that are supporting troops. Churches, VFW and individuals. The best source is a parent whose son or daughter is deployed. They will have names of fellow soldiers that may not be getting much mail from home.
We got the name of a Scout platoon of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment at FOB Ghazni, TF Red Currahee. These brave troopers are serving on the front lines of Afghanistan. If you remember correctly the 506th PIR is the unit of the Band of Brothers fame. We are sending packages to several of the Scouts and it is very rewarding. Those brave young men are having it rough at FOB Ghazni.
