Marines Need Our Help

195

Everybody knows that our Marines are very capable of handling anything they encounter in the frontlines of the current war efforts. Late last week though, a unit of Marines lost everything they own. Lima company camp was totally burned and the Marines now have only the clothes on their backs. A call has gone out, and yes, Soldiers’ Angels is involved, to get the most basic supplies to the Marines in a hurry. The list of things these heroes need includes:

A Marine after the fire
A Marine after the fire

Pillows, running Shoes (Sizes 9-12) with the most common size being 10 1/2, socks, green pt short, green t-shirts (military) disposable razors, hygiene items, snacks, hydration of any sort….really just ANYTHING YOU CAN SPARE FOR THESE HEROES!!!

From the War on Terror News site comes this:

A total of 50 Marines lost everything and about 30 Marines lost half of their stuff. These men need us more now then ever. If you could please help. I can’t do this alone. [Link: http://waronterrornews.typepad.com/home/2008/06/marines-need-yo.html]
