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 buddy of mine always had to use Crown Royal for mouth wash because I put mouthwash on the form and it was not his fault I put a half gallon of Crown in the mail every month instead of Scope. How the game is played. He was 1st sergant so he may have had a little more leeway, but he said his CO was always asking him abiut his fresh breath so they know what is going on.
I already bought a bunch of those listerine strips that I found on sale for the packages.

I have a DOD secret clearance and a position of trust certification from the government. Can't risk fudging on the custom form. Theres no appeal, theres no process for mediation. Your clearance is pulled subjectively on purpose to keep us inline. Don't do a damn thing to risk it is the message, no matter how small.

But on the other hand my wife doesn't have a clearance.

"Hey pops

Sorry I haven't emailed you in awhile, but I have been flying a lot this
month. My thanksgiving was good, I spent it flying over Afghanistan. I got
one package last week from your buddies, and another today from xxxx
xxxx. xxxx sent me a string of Christmas lights made out of shot gun
shells. I will be hanging them outside my room. I also started reading the
cardinals book and it is really good. I will give it to you when I get
home, I am sure you will like it. Tell all those guys thanks for me. It
was really cool of them to do that.... "

Crazy Coffey is over in the sandbox now. I sent him 2 packages last week. One package had a Santa hat and a football and a Cardinals book (donated) in the other with the normal goodies.

Awesome, BRC.

If you could, send me a PM detailing your shipping arrangements - the Mrs. and I have a package we're planning to send in the next few days as well.

Great work here, Doug; we have a similar project we do at school and at our church for soldiers from SD. It's a very worthy cause. Keep up the good work, man. Happy holidays too.

It's the Planeteers filling the boxes, I just facilitate.

PSA:
If the Christmas spirit moves ya, a reminder.....all and I mean 100% of all contributions go to the goodies for the troops. I'm paying all the shipping costs and paypal fees. So this Christmas think about someone overseas helping defend the homeland, they are away from their family, missing their kids etc. They could use a little reminder that their fellow citizens back home remember their sacrifice and appreciate them this Christmas.
