Canadian Soldiers need our help!!
From Brat at Tanker brothers, we have a special call from help from our Canadian Brothers and Sisters:
I have heard from a Canadian medic working in Afghanistan along with US medics. He was VERY surprised to hear that SA supports all coalition countries and not just the US. Angel As always, he says they want nothing for themselves BUT would “really appreciate” stuff for the wounded, and [quote]Also if possible any clothes, shoes and school supplies you could get your hands on would be awesome as well it make it a lot easier for us to win the hearts and minds of the locals.[quote] I have told him that Angels are on the job! So PLEASE can you help me help them? I have volunteered to be the point person for this group – go figure – so if you have anything you can send to them (and hey, a goodie or two for OUR Canadians. Wink wouldn’t be refused I’m thinking) PLEASE please email me. Let’s get this done and show this Canadian medic (who did work on the fallen Canadian this last week I’m thinking – he says they “have been very busy” )that we can send some Angel love. You all know by now what our medics need… Thanks y’all!
We Milbloggers are a generous and resourceful people. You all know from “JP” when he served in Afghanistan the first time what the kids and people there need. If you can help, please contact Brat at “tankerbrosbrat[at]gmail.com.”
I also posted some time back that morale of the British troops was suffering due to lack of support. There are many who get “no letters” much less a care package. As the holiday season draws near, it will be especially hard for all the coalition troops to be away from their loved ones. Many think of this as an American effort. If I am not mistaken there are over forty countries, maybe more helping.
I know some of those countries barely have resources to send troops but they do so. That is because most of those countries are now “free” from their years [decades] of oppression. They support the War effort because they know the value and cost of freedom!
Maybe we can’t send every coalition soldier a care package or letter personally; but, there are other ways to send thanks when we are dealing with such large numbers. Anyone else got any ideas?
