FROM HERO's ANGELS:
DEPLOYED TROOPS IN NEED REQUEST:
I am in contact with a local service member who is currently deployed and would like to help out an elite team of 25 who are near his location. The message to me stated:
"They don't have anything where they are, not even hot water for a shower( but the water is always warm because the bladders get hot from the sun). When I gave them a box of supplies I received they told me they don't get much stuff sent to them."
He said they were really excited when he gave them a box. His suggested items would be unscented body/baby wipes, antibacterial lotion, protein snacks, toiletries (deodorant soap, shampoo, they don't have any access to stores around them and rely on mail for these items if they don't bring enough in the beginning), beef jerky, hard candies, and individual drink flavor packets. Monetary donations would also be appreciated to help cover the expense of shipping. Large flat rate boxes are $17.35 each to ship. I would also encourage cards/letters also with the donors email address listed. Packages to this location are taking almost 4 wks for arrival so the sooner we can send items the better.
Donations can be dropped off at any of our drop off locations:
Thank you & PLEASE feel free to share this post to help one of our Heroes from our local area!!

I know both families, and wanted to pay my respects, and thanks to my tech/partner, Kelly (and her Dad), the tribute finally got done! We're working on having an American Eagle painted on the wall above, with the wings drapped down over the kneeling wood cut-out of the praying American soldier.
UPDATE: THANK YOU to all those who helped us collect Christmas Cards - our FIRST Annual Cards for Heroes Chrismas Card event. At total of 642 Christmas Cards were sent to our contact at the Watler Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. My business partner & friend, Kelly Montag Kramlich came up with this idea, and it was a wonderful event to participate in!
