Great work! It's especially nice to see this chart put some tangible numbers on how much regular people truly care about the service and sacrifice of our armed forces personnel.

OPERATION FR CANTEEN SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!

Heads Up!!

My apologies to everyone for not posting this earlier. (I could have sworn I did it, but I probably didn't.)

If you would like to send items for our wounded Troops, we are currently sending them directly to the field hospital in Iraq. If you would like the address, please FReepmail, Brad's Gramma or MoJo2001.

If you would like to participate by sending care packages or correspondence, please FReepmail Brad's Gramma, Kathy In Alaska, or MoJo2001.

We are going to follow the request of the Navy and ask that everyone that participates in the care packages for Sailors do the following:

Freepmail your name and address.

We are doing this for your safety and for our Troops. We want to absolutely make sure that no one will be sending any vile or graphic material. We know most FReepers would never do that. However, we've seen what has happened (thanks to those idiots at IndyMedia.com) when anti-Americans try to get their hands on addresses for our Troops. We want to ensure they are getting as much positive support as possible.

Thank you everyone for your generosity, patience, and contributions.

OPERATION FR CANTEEN SUPPORT OUR TROOPS UPDATE!!!

Hello everyone!! I know it has been awhile since I have updated everyone. Most of you have already received the word to send directly to the Operation Semper Fi address in Iraq.

So? I wanted to update everyone on what is going on.

First, we have received a few boxes and letters since we received the direct address. The boxes and letters were sent directly to the Command. If you have sent something in the past few weeks and haven't heard back from me, please FReepmail me your name and address. I want to make sure you are acknowledged and I can check the address off my "TO FIND" list.
 

Second, Senior Chief Walsh has not heard back from the Lt. Col. about the package arrivals. AS SOON AS WE DO, I WILL LET YOU ALL KNOW.

Third, we have a Marine on the ground that will try to check for me in the next few days. So? I'm hoping he will be able to meet the Lt. Col and find out for us. Keep your fingers crossed.

Fourth, we received a request from one of our brave heroes for help with shoes for schoolchildren in Mosul. If you are interested in helping, please FReepmail MoJo2001 or smaagee. (It is smaagee's request!) They can also use school supplies. So? If you have any laying around or visiting Wally World (Walmart to those that don't know), please pick up a few packs of pencils or notebook paper. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Also, FReeper archy is in contact with a Chaplain in Iraq and he was asking for help for the Convoys. (Transportation companies.) They also need toiletries and food for the guys and gals making sure the supplies are delivered. They are sometimes away from their base of operations for days. Since we know that Convoys are always in danger, this help would be greatly appreciated. So? Please contact MoJo2001 or archy to find out more information.

Also, patriciaruth is putting together packages to send out to more of our Troops that need supplies. If you are interested in sending money donations to her or supplies, please contact her through FReepmail or just send MoJo2001 a FReepmail.

We will try to update the request lists everyday in the Canteen. If you have any requests for our Troops, please send the information to MoJo2001, Brad's Gramma, or Kathy In Alaska. We will then add it to the list.

Everyone can help out in their own way. If you don't have the money to help out, remember that words of encouragement can be just as valuable. So? Send a FReepmail to Brad's Gramma, Kathy In Alaska, or MoJo2001. We would be happy to send it forward.

Thank you to everyone that has helped. We are greatly humbled by your generosity. God Bless each and every one of you.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to FReepmail MoJo2001.
