Pallets of sunblock, lip balm, muscle balm, microwave popcorn, hand wipes, oral hygiene kits, mini hand wipes, print materials, toothpaste packets, and the like have at the request of the Marines been staged at one location in Afghanistan and are being brought in on demand to Camp leatherneck

We appreciate your support -- we'll make sure these packages make it into the hands of the Marines! ~ Chap. Stallinga

About Camp Leatherneck
Camp Leatherneck is a 1,600 acre United States Marine Corps base located in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. It is located mostly in Washir District and is conjoined with Camp Bastion, the main British military base in Afghanistan. The forward element of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force as Regional Command Southwest is currently based there along with a number of other Marine elements. It is SOT policy to report only generally known public information regarding military operations.

Who Made This Possible?
The shipment was made possible by our Patriotic Partner, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company as part of their Goodyear Goodyear Gives Back campaign which is a fund-raising effort designed to generate support for the US Armed Forces and their families who sacrifice such much to protect America's freedom.

2012 is the third year of Goodyear's Gives Back Campaign, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Support Our Troops to use in providing goods and services to the troops and their families worldwide. And that's on top of the tremendous boost in morale the Gives Back program's nationwide publicity gives military servicemen and women when they hear that folks at home really are all with them.

The Goodyear Gives Back campaign is the real deal, delivering real support to the deployed troops and their familes at home and aborad, and on behalf of the troops and their families we thank Goodyear for stepping up.
