The shipment of boxes in my post of August 22 JUST GOT THERE TODAY!
Here is the response from our TSAC contact person in the Chinook outfit:

Hi Mike,

It was a long day with a good deal of distractions but I am getting a message out to you before I bed down. The packages arrived today and once again you have many, many smiles from appreciative Soldiers.

The soups and tuna are big hits when we are not able to align schedules with the chow hall. All much appreciated and well received. We are now sitting good on coffee for a month or so, haha. As the weather continues to cool down I’m sure consumption will increase putting what we have to very good use.

Tomorrow I will circulate packages around to the other companies like I did before. Comments continue to be a mix of appreciative and amazed that people will take the time and money to think of us. After now being here for a few months this was a welcome morale boost.

Thank you again to all who contributed.

Very Respectfully,

Mike


Thanks again to all of you supporters out there who have lighted up smiling faces in that dangerous part of the world!
We still have coffee in inventory left to send so we will hold off on that for a while.
Snack items and energy bars and powdered drink mixes will still be greatly appreciated.
Beef jerky, nuts, pocketable snack items will be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to use your imagination and think "high density" items that do NOT require sending packages full of "air" in those expensive Flat Rate boxes at $17.40 postage each!

Ramen is a lot of "air" but it can be partially crushed to fill in corners of boxes and it is going to become soup anyway.

Whatever you care to donate will bring lots of cheer and good memories to these troops.
They really are dazzled by these simple things our mountain community are willing to send.

Thank you, again, SO MUCH for your support!

BGR/Mike
