If that's directed at me, thank you...but save the praise for the guys (and gals) currently in harm's way.
Yes, I served. And I'm proud as hell to be a Marine (Once a Marine, Always a Marine). However, I've been sleeping in a comfy bed every night, seeing my wife / family every day and eating better than gov't rations at all times...for a loooong time now. And I don't have to worry about IEDs, snipers or mortar/RPG fire when I hop in my truck to head to town.
So I'm happy to do what I can. It's not a huge deal.
Again, I appreciate the sentiment...just direct the thanks to the folks who really deserve it most.
I still owe ya money jar. I'm trying!!
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
So I tried to send out copies of the Miami-OH programs today.
The friggin post office wanted $39.95 because it was in a box that had Express written on it. (A box they sent me BTW.) I told them to kiss my ass and I'll send them via UPS.
Hang tight Shalvoy. Their on their way...one way or the other.
why is this not pinned?
Thanks for the repin.
Jar, which unit do you send packages too?
At the moment, with a lot of rotations home, these are the remaining units moving forward:
- PRG 6-16D (USAF)
- US Embassy Kabul
- USS John Stennis
- The USS New York will likely redeploy in Spring / Summer. (They were on the list, are at home port now, but will rejoin the list when they go to sea again.)
Our contact for 4 Spec Ops units (small units not in major camps or FOBs) just rotated home (March). We've also had 5 other units rotate home in the last year.
I do not know if/when other units will be added. To be honest, I've never beat the bushes looking for more units to support. We've gotten our units via unit members who belong to Bucknuts or bucknuts members who know someone in one of the units. With the draw-down in motion in Afghanistan, fewer of our previously supported units are redeploying. For that reason, I have not been actively soliciting additional donations for awhile.
If you know of a unit in need of support, please let me know.
I have a few friends with EODMU5 who are about to deploy soon. I'll see if they are interested in getting some care packages.
If so, give/pick a main contact and have them get me their APO (I think you were Army, so they'd probably be APO) address. I'll PM you my email address in case they/you want to contact me that way.
It's Jar doin' work again. I know you don't do it for accolades sir. But I must reiterate how much I appreciate what you and your family do for the brave men and women with there boots in the sand. I donate to a few different charities each year but I am always most satisfied with what I send to you, because I know how much those men and women enjoy receiving that reminder from us at home that they are in our thoughts and prayers. are
It Ain't No Sin To Be Glad Your Alive
Thanks for being appreciative (everybody), but this is ALL about the guys with boots in the sand (or water) in my book. I just lend a little time, brain and help. We give what we can. And the folks like you who have pitched in money deserve the thanks just as much.
Sent a summary of recent recruiting news and what little Spring Practice info we've gotten to our guys on the USS John Stennis. Our man there prints it off and distributes among the many Buckeye fans on board.
Buckeye Fan Since 1970!!!
We came unpinned!
Please pin again!!! I still owe jar money for our troops God Bless them!!!
