Veterans Day 2011: A Tale of Two Marches

Written by SOT Staff
thumb_VeteransDay2011650px
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ~~ John Stuart Mill, via Charley Price, a vet in Florida

PizzaPacketsCOM
Oct. 31, 2011 - SupportOurTroops.Org has started 210,000 paper packets of assorted pizza spices heading over to the troops in Afghanistan. They are being included in Care Paks shipping out by troop-support groups to a variety of deployed units, so they'l really get around. This is all thanks to a donation from the folks at PizzaPacket.com, who thought it up and offered it to us. Good people! These crushed red pepper, garlic, oregano, Parmesan, and pizza spice flavors will jazz up MREs and other foods. Spice on!

IRAQ, October 9, 2011 –
Support Our Troops, On behalf of the over 300 Soldiers assigned to HHC, 77th Sustainment Brigade; thank you for your support and caring hearts for the Soldiers.  The care packages and letters that you sent to us made our time in Iraq a little more pleasant!  I wish you could see the Soldiers' eyes light up each time they received a package!  Your organization and each volunteer in your organization are truly appreciated.  Thank you for your efforts in the states working to assist each Service Member around the globe.
Sincerely, Wesley _____, Captain, U.S. Army, Commanding

 

Support Our Troop's reply to the 77th:

Captain Wesley _____, and the Soldiers of the 77th Sustainment Brigade,

Thank you for a job well done.  Often without proper media or political support.   Being the best of America, you prevailed regardless.  It has been our honor to serve you while you have defended all of us and our families.  It is impossible to do enough for you when you step up for all the rest of us.   You're doing your best, and we figure you deserve our best.    It has been our goal to run an organization that facilitates the widespread desire of individual Americans who want to support you who defend all of us.   And so as you get ready to return home I want you to know that the goods we sent you were not "institutional" or "governmental" gifts.   They were the purest good-will of your neighbors and folks everywhere across this great and good nation.  They were given to us by individual people who knew you were there, and appreciated you and what you were doing so much, that they made the effort to seek us out, and get the goods to us to get to you.  People shopping at drug stores were able to buy an item at the checkout and put it in a box for us to send you.   School classrooms across America drew thank-you cards and sent them to us to send to you.   Workplaces gathered goods from employees and customers for us to send you.   Scouts across America operated a program with us to generate snack items to send you.  It all came straight from the American people, specifically for you.  Because the people know who you are and what you are doing.   Is this a great country or what? 

 

 

HHC Guidon Stand -These Yankees Will Never Forget- was HHC's motto. The NY represents the unit's lineage to New York City. The World Trade Center stands tall in remembrance of 9-11 and as a reminder to us why we are fighting. The Statue of Liberty is our unit Patch.

I will always remember by happenstance ending up in the checkout lane at a Walgreens in Florida at which one of our care pack donation boxes was located by the cash register.  The second person in front of me was a preoccupied, harried woman checking out at the cash register.  The cashier asked her if she would like to buy one of the items in the care goods box so that it could be sent to the troops overseas.  The lady focused on the box for the first time, looked back up at the cashier, and said "no."   Then a second later she said, "I'll take two."   The cashier broke out the nicest smile I'd seen in a while, and said "and because you're doing that, I've got this coupon here, and we're going to make it three."  And that my friends, is exactly how everyday Americans feel about each and every one of you.

 

Cpt. Melton, I would be grateful if you would ensure that each and every one of your brigade members knows these facts.

Thank you each and all,  and may God Bless you and your families.

My Best, Martin C. Boire, Chairman, SupportOurTroops.Org
