Default For The Troops

For the last few years now around the 9/11 time, I've been collecting snacks for care packages for the troops over in the sandbox. Just finished packing up 200 lbs, heading to the P.O. shortly.

Send C7 tail lights to the enemy, not to our side.

From the shipment recipient when notified the boxes were on the way.

"WOW!!! Thank you so much and please thank the club. These will be greatly appreciated. With COVID the guys that have been here for a bit were limited to sandwiches and MRE’s for a while. The BX just recently reopened here. Thanks again and I look forward to sharing pics of the guys enjoying it."

That makes my day.

I only got stuff like that one time on deployment. The Las Vegas Charter of the Hells Angels, sent us a big box of swag to our deployed location. I had a long time member there as a friend, and they hooked us up. It was better than Christmas. The guys loved that stuff, and it was nice of them to send it. I had a flag flown for them on our jet and sent a certificate of authenticity with it.

That is awesome! Thank you for supporting our troops.

I have done that a few times in the past.

We always loved getting stuff from non-family random people.

Our club member who this is going to (mortuary technician at Dover), had a US flag carried on a C-17 during the various stops in the Middle East.
We proudly display that flag at all our official club functions, and it's in my possession, so it will be displayed.

That's really, really cool. I would have really liked to have had a flag that flew with one of the planes that hit Al Qaeda in Afghanistan after 9/11, or maybe that had been on one of the ships that bombarded them.

I signed a few bombs on our old B-1's that were in the desert when I was there. If you look on my photobucket page, there are some pics from way back when.

I was getting requests from hundreds of people for their names to be signed onto bombs. I wrote names on bombs until there wasn't any room to write anymore. My step mom would email me lists of peoples names that wanted that. I even got a radio station bumper sticker to put on a bomb from Eagle 97 in Alabama. I took the pick with the bumper sticker on the bomb but I couldn't let it launch with it on. If the sticker came off it would be FOD.
