My fav BMCS has found a particular problem in Khandahar. His unit has come across a group of wounded Marines who have slipped through the cracks so to speak. They come in straight from the field with the clothes on their back. In most cases, these Marines have suffered a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). They are in this location to see the doctors at the nearby facility, which is top-notch, before being shipped out to other facilities.So, help out these transient Marines by sending over some stuff. Here's a list Maggie posted:
So, what's the problem? Well, for one thing, the Marines have none of their own gear. Except for seeing the docs, they are sitting around bored silly.
New twin bed sheets sets.Imagine a doctor visit that may last weeks . . .
IPods/Mp3 players. (new or used)
Visit Maggie's site for details.
That is all. Carry on.
