Give aid and comfort to our troops!

I have just read a sincere request by a Chaplain who is stationed in Iraq. He is one of the ones who had his 'going home' time extended another six months. He has a wonderful site, and he never asks for anything until we bug him enough to let us know what we can do to help. lol. Please feel free to send care packages to him. Everything will be distributed and wholely appreciated.

Many People have Asked.
Dear Friends,

Many of you have asked what you might do to help soldiers that come through CSC Scania. Here are some items that are in short supply on an on-going basis that help get soldiers through the days. Mind you they are not essentials, the Army takes care of the essentials. These are what we refer to as comfort items. But if you want to help, here is the list.

Razors
Shaving Cream
Hand Sanitizer
Deodorant
Lib Balm
Beef Jerky
Drink Mixes
Breakfast bars
Salted Sunflower Seeds
Small Cans of Pringles
Small bags of Trail Mix
Coffee
Freeze Pops (the old fashion kind that come in the plastic tube)

Thanks for all that you do. Although we don't always have time to thank everyone we are deeply greatful for your faithfulness. Things can be shipped to:

Chaplain CPT Corey Bjertness
HHB 1/125 Strike
CSC Scania
APO AE 09331

@peace@war,

Chapb
Anything you can spare will surely be a blessing returned to you in a way you could never imagine. I know. Thank you.

I could drum up a few of those items and send them. At one time, you could send care packages addressed to "any soldier" but they stopped that due to security reasons, and rightly so.

Dear Steve,
Thank you so much! About the 'Any Soldier', I guess I agree. It's just that some people haven't learned about Soldiers' Angels and other organizations yet. I do believe that more people than not really want to be involved in helping.

This, I consider, is one of the failings of the White House. Where are the war bonds? Where are the national bake-sales? Advertised as such? We have not been asked to forgo any comfort, yet our men are faced with death at a moments notice...moment by moment.

Do you see anything wrong with this picture? OMG! Talk about getting W-A-Y off the topic...well, I have a tendency to do that once in a great while. :)
