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.

Otherwise, I'm sending something to them soon, if anyone is interested in jumping in and helping make it a big bacon wrapped porn filled box of "**** you, isis" awesomeness from America.

Just let me know

On this Thanksgiving when you give thanks for your family, please take minute to think about our vets who are having a hard time back here in the real world. Or those who lost an arm, leg or were burned.

22 veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan take their lives every single day, including Thanksgiving. Some are struggling to resume their life after being injured in war.

I've started something new. This last Veterans day we had a soldier unable to attend the ceremony at the school due to a flare up from his war injuries. We had the kids make him some get well cards. I've attached some example to this email.

If you are so inclined, I can give you names and addresses for the kids to send get well cards to these vets. You can PM me.

I started talking to and helping a guy with his squat and deadlift form at the gym the other day. He was asking me all sorts of questions after watching me lift. He himself was working back from an injury, one sustained in combat in Afghanistan. Said they told him it would never get better and he told me he was having pain just changing his daughter's diaper. Since he started rehabbing himself (therapy wasn't working and they didn't pay for much of it), he's been able to decrease his pain enough and has started squatting and deadlifting! We spent over an hour squatting together and working on deadlift form. It was very moving having him tell a complete stranger like myself about his troubles and his life. Someone like myself that could never imagine being in combat. I've offered to write him programs when he's ready for his lifting to get stronger.

It was a very good reminder about all the sacrifices that many in this country make. Whether you agree with the war or not, their duty is to serve, and most do it quite well.

What I do for vets has nothing to do with support or non-support of a war. I could care less about their politics. The sacrifice they and their families have made for us deserve our respect. Now, some of these tough soldiers are having issues with war injuries. Dealing with their buddies dying and they lived.

We can't fix their hands or heads. But, we can listen and let them know their sacrifice was not forgotten. Sounds like you were right on the spot for that vet.

For our vets this memorial day weekend. From my friend, CrazyCoffey

Fort Hood has put a boot on the ground for every American life lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. A powerful memorial.
