A friend is gathering blankets to send to the Marines of the 2/9 – winter temperatures plunge below 0º in Afghanistan.
Most any design and/or color will work.
If interested in helping send blankets to the guys, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details and/or to discuss. Any help you may provide is greatly appreciated by the 2/9 Marines and their families at home. TIA
Important mailing dates for sending care packages:
(1) USPS advises that packages must be sent by Nov 12th to make it to FPO addresses by Christmas.
(2) The cut-off date for mailing any packages to the 2/9 during the remainder of their deployment is Dec 2nd.
Thanks again for caring about, and your willingness to do something for, the Marines of the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines Regiment.
