URGENT!! Taking Care of His Brothers…

I’ve said for almost two year now that the best why you can honor my son and other fallen heroes is to take care of his brothers in arms. Well here is your chance to do more than give lips service to your support of our troops.

This is from KneeDeep’s blog. She is a anwesome troops support and wonderful lady.  Please give her site a visit then write a letter, fill a box and snap a picture to tell these men WE GIVE A SH*T!

I give a sh*t — get the message out!

Oct 12th, 2009 | By Claire | Category: 1-Featured Article

I got the following email from a couple of ladies who volunteer for Sponsor the Troops (one is the owner of the site). I am sending a box or two off this week… please do what you can! I know you all have probably heard of the battle for outpost Keating in Afghanistan. The troops there lost everything they own — literally and they lost their friends. This is a dark time in Afghanistan and our troops need to know we support them not more than ever. It’s been posted everywhere, but I don’t have time to link to all the places. Regardless if you have not sent a care package yet, please get busy and get one out today or tomorrow!

Here’s the note below

QUOTE
8 killed in an awful battle in Afghanistan where they
were overwhelmed by insurgents. Many more were wounded.Here’s some info that is on my troop support website:

In the battle for Combat Outpost Keating, the men of Bravo Troop 361 Cavalry lost every possession they had, save for the clothes on their backs. These men have lost friends, their outpost, and all their belongings. One soldier who made it out wrote that “most people back home dont even know, no one gives a <censored>”. Well, many of us do. And you can prove it by giving whatever you can.

if you would like to send a card, letter or a small package with snacks, morale gear, etc. to the survivors to tell them “WE GIVE A <censored>”, you can mail directly to (please DO NOT send money to this address, this address is in Afghanistan, and they cannot purchase anything there). Please include a note in your package that these items are for the COP Keating Survivors:

CSM Robert Wilson
TF Mountain Warrior
FOB Bostick
APO AE 09354

And, yes, before you ask…the Army did give each of the survivors one change of clothes…but, they have to buy any extras, personal items, etc, and the PX there is just not prepared to handle this.

Those of us putting this plea out there are asking one final thing — if possible… please take a picture of yourself holding a sign that says “I give a <censored>!” We thought it might bring a smile to their faces to see boxes rolling in with that sentiment! Please include any personal items you can, but also include books, MP3 players (if you have one to spare), and other morale boosting materials. Remember these guys lost EVERYTHING including their most precious friends.
