Posted on 11/25/2001 1:16:02 PM PST by patriciaruth
FReepers! I need emails to send to our troops with the Christmas presents that are being mailed out this week to the 101st AIRBORNE. We have 200 plus presents, but only about a third of them so far have a personal message to go with them to show the troops that we care about them and are grateful for their sacrifices for our country and for putting their lives on the line for our freedom.
PLEASE FReepMail me or send an email to my personal email (below) a Dear Soldier note for the Holidays! Do it today, so I can print them out and put them in the box tomorrow.
AND if anyone could also contribute toward purchasing one or more scarves, or contribute toward the postage, just FReepmail me for my snail mail address or use www.paypal.com and pay by credit card using my personal email address (below).
So far, ABOUT 1/3 of the 200 scarves are bought or pledged, and I would like to put someone else's name, not mine on at least some of the 130 scarves yet to be adopted and given to a serviceman pulling duty on Christmas at an observation post or wherever they may be now that the 101st Airborne has been moved. Guess where? In fact, the news is reporting our troops are landing near Kandahar now.
Contributors so far are:
Email messages sent so far for the troops:
Carrie; Margaret; family in High Ridge, MO; Ruth in Visalia, CA; Laura
Cards coming: Gretchen; "Cool Guy" Christmas scarves URL http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/571233/posts Kosovo Care Package URL http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a3bd55aeb7d48.htm
Link to Silk Scarves for Christmas thread
This has the explanation of why the troops want the silk scarves to help reduce chaffing when they carry the 100 lbs. LBE's.
I would appreciate it if you could add your name and address or at least your real first name and hometown, to personalize it more for the soldier.
Check is (literally) in the mail. I wanted to send something the other day but I lost the thread.
God Bless America and Our MIlitary
God Bless President Bush
God Bless US
Hello! Hope you are doing well. I am just one of millions of Americans who greatly appreciate your service to our country and in the war against terrorism. Thank you for all you do. I owe you several beers I'm sure.
There is not a block on any street that is not peppered with American flags - on mailboxes, hanging form the garage, new flagpoles, etc. We are behind you - that will not change.
I believe President Bush when he tells us that you will have all the tools you need to do your job quickly and effectively.
I'm certain your family is very proud of you - I am too. Come home as soon as you can.
May G-d keep you safe,
Charlie & Family
