Planet members and their kids serving in Iraq and Afghanistan need our support.

I know of one member of Chiefs Planet getting ready to go to Afghaniastan. I know
another that has a son getting ready to deploy. Another that has a son already there. I propose that we raise money and ship some "goddies" over to the units where Chiefs Planet members or their kids are serving our country. To let them know they are not alone, that some of us back here in the USA appreciate their sacrifice and service.

I will personally pay all the shipping costs and coordinate the project.

I will pay all the paypal fees of the members who donate. If you donate $20 to buy goodies for the troops, $20 goes to the troops.

If you want to send a check, or some goodies yourself, donated items, PM me for a mailing address.

If you have a store that has items that would go in the care package and would sell those at cost and or donate, PM me.

100% of the money raised will go to purchase items for the troops. I will update this thread with the progress and post pictures of the "goodies" and items that will be shipped to the troops.

This is not a political thread or idea. The point is to support the Planet members or their kids on a personal level while they are voluntarily putting themselfs in harms way for us.

PM me for the paypal address. If you know of someone serving overseas, PM me and we will put them on the list to recieve a care package

Hey BRC,

A few days after my wife checked with her brother's wife about this package, he was injured in an IED attack and sent home for medical treatment. Today we learned that his driver and the guy who took his place were both killed by an IED. It's a tough job these guys have (both in terms of personal risk and also in terms of dealing with the loss of close friends).

Thanks again for all the support you facilitate!

In some of the worst times I've ever experienced, a small note or package surprising me made the difference between being depressed and feeling validated. Agree or not for the reasons we're there, coming together and supporting the troops with their boots on the ground is a profound statement, and it does not go un-noticed by the troops receiving the packages. Don't make fun of what I'm saying, never in my life has a simple gesture made me feel so good and happy to be an american. Keep donating if you feel inclined, it matters more than you know to the troops receiving it.

He's heading to Iraq. They are in the middle of a civil war. You can get it from all sides.

Well its certainly never "good to go" in that country, but unless the news outlets are completely ignoring the situation (admittedly a distinct possibility)... its not nearly as bad as the true war years.

Ie; all of the logistics have long been in place to ensure the smooth arrival of whatever kind of contracting work his brother does... one of my closest cousins has spent 2+ years there as an airplane mechanic, and while he's in no hurry to go back he admits that they are catered to in every way possible.

Far more than our warriors, that's for sure.

WWII vet was cheering on runners at a race to benefit the Pat Tillman charity. Spontaneously the runners started coming over and thanking him for his service.

The 408K Race in San Jose is already an inspiring event. The annual 8-kilometer run benefits the Pat Tillman Foundation, which funds scholarships for military veterans. This year, runners made it all the more memorable with a spontaneous tribute to a 95-year-old World War II veteran who had come out in his full uniform to cheer them.

San Jose Mercury News reporter Julia Prodis Sulek captured the stirring salute Sunday as runners shook the hand of Joe Bell and thanked him for his service.

Best quote I've heard was from a runner..........He was the greatest generation. We can only hope for 2nd place.

Another of the greatest generation is gone. "Wild Bill" from easy company portrayed on "Band of Brothers".

http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/09/us/ban...-veteran-dies/

(CNN) -- William Guarnere, a World War II veteran popularized by the "Band of Brothers" miniseries, has died. He was 90.


Guarnere was rushed to a hospital early Saturday morning and died of a ruptured aneurism that night, his son, William Guarnere Jr., told CNN.
"He lived a good life. He traveled a lot. He pretty much did everything he could have done," the son said Sunday.


During the war, Guarnere earned the nickname "Wild Bill." He lost a leg trying to save a friend on the battlefield.


The HBO miniseries was based on a book by Stephen E. Ambrose.
It told the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army. Guarnere was played by actor Frank John Hughes.
The family is planning a funeral this week in Philadelphia, where Guarnere was born and lived most of his life, his son said.

You got that right. You voluntarily put yourself in harms way for your country, you should feel the pride. Those of us that are fat asses civilians sitting back here in the USA safely while your up on that wall need to make sure its recognized and appreciated.

I found the following worth reproducing and thought that this would be the perfect place to ask for help on behalf of U.S.M.C. Sgt Andrew Tahmooressi:

Excerpt:
Quote:
Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested in Mexico in March after he got lost and accidentally drove across the border. He had just moved to San Diego from Florida and had all his belongings in his truck, including his pistol, shotgun and rifle….

A California congressional representative sent letters to President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry asking him to secure the release of a U.S. Marine veteran jailed in Tijuana after he drove into Mexico with three legally owned guns in his truck last month.

Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter said in the letter that Afghanistan war veteran Andrew Tahmooressi had just moved to San Diego from Florida and had all his belongings in his truck, including his pistol, shotgun, and rifle, when he missed the last U.S. exit on April 1, forcing him to cross the border.

Road closures because of checkpoints and construction added to the confusion, and there was no opportunity for drivers to turn around, Hunter added.
According to an exclusive interview with Fox News, Sgt. Tahmooressi said prison guards tortured and beat him and stripped naked and chained him to a bed. Many other media outlets and multiple international organizations included such coverage in their reports.

Sgt. Tahmooressi served two tours of duty in Afghanistan. In that time, he survived when an IED hit his truck. Now it is time to serve him.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Demand Release of U.S.M.C. Sgt. Tahmooressi

May 31 deadline to file the required petition ends tonight.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...nment/qslJk2Xd



FYI: One of America's important ally in the Greater Middle East region asked why President Obama remained silent when it came to one of their own.


We should stop all U.S. mail into Mexico - Then close the border until they free Sgt. Tahmooressi. Imports from Mexico to the U.S. totaled $293 billion in 2012.

Thank you to all who have served our country!
