Okay, peeps! I am sending out a help for some Ft. Hood soldiers who are facing a hard winter in Iraq. These are not the REMF’s that have mess-halls and Wendy’s and PX type stores. These are guys living outside the wire in FOB’s that have nothing.
Go visit my friend Hope’s site at Hope Radio . She has been bat shit crazy with stuff lately and posted a catch-up on the first part of her blog. But he last half will give you some information on what these guys need. Please, and I don’t say that often, please go over there and do what ever you can for our guys and gals. A donation, a commitment to send some stuff to the guys or to her and she will combine everything and send them in one package.
The Army is lacking in really supporting the guys outside the wires. They do okay for the REMFs because that is where all the brass is. But the dudes doing the hard stuff is lacking in some fundamental needs. Socks, hand warmers, nuts, granola bars, cereal, etc.
And the moral is pretty low, along with the bitter winds and cold of an Iraquie winter. So lets do something for those who are doing the hard things so we can have a safe Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and other family gatherings.
Thank you for what ever you can do, and Hope and the guys and gals thank you, too.
**UPDATE** If any of you people in the educational field or work within your church or Synagogue, or have an office who would like to do something worth and productive and would like to help in this effort and support some of these dudes and dudetts, please give me or Hope a shout out. They will be most appreciative. . .
