Freepers, I have been sent an email from someone stationed in Iraq regarding an urgent need by our wounded servicemen/women. For security reasons, the whole email can NOT be posted here. Read on, please....

MoJo20001's husband's division is going to be collecting the items and sending them via transport to the hospital in Iraq. IF you feel so inclined, and the need IS urgent...please let one of us know.

We also are coming across names...MANY MANY names of servicemen who need care packages, a letter, sometimes depending upon the branch of service, an email. If you can commit to being faithful with the correspondence, PLEASE let us know about that, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you so much for this post, and the offer, Brad's Gramma, MoJo2001.  

I know there's a WILL among Freepers to help the troops in Iraq. Thanks for providing a WAY! (not easy right now, we know.)  

Please Freepmail me.

Thank you! ((Hugs!))

I'm interested in sending packages of travel size stuff.

I'm also interested in writing letters, or emailing anyone who needs encouragement. I love to write - so not a problem.

Please FReepmail me whatever addresses there are for sending the package of travel-size items to the Hospital, and also address for email and snailmail.

I've now been told I make brownies that are more like fudge, and satisfy the "need" for chocolate better than anything else they've been sent. Awww, flattery will just getcha another batch!

BTW, anyone reading this - if you send goodie boxes of candy and such, remember to throw in something that is non-choclate. Several of the guys at WRAMC requested Skittles, Licorice, and/or Starburst - one was allergic to chocolate and the other just like fruit-flavored candy better than chocolate. Just a hint.
