Great news from Iraq!
The new unit to which TSAC recently shipped 10 APO Flat Rate boxes just notified us that the boxes got there!
Here is the text of that email (certain information redacted for security) along with a photo of very happy faces!


Mike & Co.,

We received all ten of your care packages last night. Thank you all so much! I think they were a bit delayed as we have moved to a new and even more austere location than where we were previously, but the supplies and amenities you and your crew provided could not have been better timed. The massive amount of food, baby wipes, and reading material certainly put a smile on some tired faces. And your boxes hit us just as we had run out of coffee.... Out deepest thanks again to all of TSAC for your loyal support and patriotism!

Best wishes from the Middle East,

Marines and Sailors of MSOT XXXX

Please accept my personal thanks to our generous mountain community for helping TSAC make this happen!
TSAC is the "conduit" for your donations of goodies and cash without which we would not see images as above!

Please remember that the TSAC "collection box" is located west of the door to Aspen Park King Soopers near the Blue Rhino propane locker.
We pick up items in the box every time we drive by.
If you would like to make a cash donation (which covers USPO shipping), please send checks payable to TSAC at:
TSAC
P.O. Box 1238
Bailey, CO, 80421-1238

Note that NO TSAC members are reimbursed for expenses and limited outlays go for purchases of coffee from Boyer's Coffee of Denver with whom we have a VERY special low price arrangement.

Please refer to this link to current TSAC needs/wants if you care to donate.

Needless to say - the smiles in the above photo should tell you how much difference you can make!

Thank You!

TSAC got another shipment off to this unit last Friday!
This one is 8 boxes with some toiletries as they have moved to a "new" location without bathing facilities.
This might seem a bit strange but, remember, these are Marine Raiders (SPEC-OPS) guys!

Here is a photo of BGR and dieselpop1 just before wheeling the boxes into the Bailey Post Office.

Here is the latest email from Iraq with information and special requests from these Marines:
TSAC,

You guys are providing a ton of awesome support, can't thank you enough.

To answer your questions quickly, we would be glad to have the coffeemate, but don't currently need the protein powder, k-cups (no keurig at current location) and no ability to play DVDs at current location. The boxes you sent last time were pretty much perfect. We will continue to make use of hygiene items like toothpaste, shaving cream and baby wipes though (I know I told you we were good before but our conditions have changed a bit...)

You thought of many more creative foods and snacks than I could've dreamed up, and everything was devoured and enjoyed.

Thanks so much, again. I'll send another photo when I can.

Best wishes,


TSAC needs to THANK all of you in our mountain community for your support!
We are only the "conduit" for your generosity.

BGR
