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.

A very select few are even buying a kevlar face mask from www.mmtechweaponsystems.com it's expensive so a truck of three soliders are trying buy extra mounts and sharing the mask for whoever goes in the turret that day. These would obviously take some extra. corrispondence with the donatee, for sizes and needs but is another option if anyone was so inclined.

The problem with that idea is funds. That stuff you listed in expensive. We are going to have to have a lot more planeteers step up to pull that idea off. As of right now we have had $225.00 contributed and $123 spent on goodies.

Some of you had privately suggested RedneckRaider son's unit over in the sandbox was worthy of a package of goodies. I've communicated with RedneckRaiderr and the good news is that his son is on his way home soon.

I realize that, and have no expectations. A box with some cigs and a "hey how are you", is absolutely a great feeling. And I am greatly honored to be mentioned in this thread. I am absolutely not trying to convay innappreciation or show a lack of gratitude.

I am buying holesters for myself and my team, I've bought them compasses and lights already, other leaders have bought me some things too, and all of this is just mostly for informational purposes. But these are out of pocket expenses for us. I merely wanted to share it with those with interests or means.

We've got a pretty smart group of posters that come up with ingenious ways to internet roast someone, they could also come up with ways to get funds if they were motivated to do so.

Hell, people working for a business that can do it could sponser a unit, there's car washes, golf/ texas hold'em tourney were some of the winnings are donated to buy things. There are other possibilities than just reaching in their own pockets.

I agree. I would be happy to contribute, organize and or participate in these fundraisers. Any Planeters interested but don't want to be "public" about their actions...PM me.

I would like to thank BRC for asking about my son and to those who he said had told him about my son. He is being processed back to the states and has completed his LAST tour. His fighting days are over and he will soon enter civilian life. He is my son and I could not be prouder!

No need to thank me. The whole point is that we need to thank your son and his family for their service. It is we that owe your son and everyone else's sons/duaghter/brothers/sister's etc that are putting themselfs in harms way.

The first package is going out tommorrow to seclark's son and his unit who are flying missions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Since he's also a Cardinals and Chiefs fan, I've also thrown in a Cardinals book and a Chiefs button that flashes and plays the "charge" music.

Just saw this BRC, count me in for a paypal donation. From past experience, I can tell you that a couple of big bottles of KC BBQ sauce(plastic bottles) and dry rub are big hits with the troops, nothing like a little taste of home cookin, and have no problems getting thru customs.

Send me the info for paypal, the planet has sent/helped send two different care packages to my brother's units serving in Iraq the past few years, and it's time for a little payback, I will get the Col to chip in also!
