request of the 576th Engineer Company, the All American
Corvette Club has shifted its support the USO Center at
Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan. We will now
be helping to support the 450,000 service men and
women that visit the center every year.
That's a almost a HALF TON!!!
The All American
Corvette Club is pleased to have had the privilege
to support to
the 576th Engineer Company deployed in Afghanistan.
Our platoon has requested that we sift our support
to the USO center.
Message From Our platoon leader:
I would first off
like to apologize to you for not responding to your
very generous amount of care packages.
I am horrible about writing to people and
hope you can forgive me.
Next I would love to thank you for the amount
of support that we got from your organization.
Just so you know the scale of the support
that you have contributed the care packages not only
supported the platoon that you adopted it also
supported the company that platoon belonged to as
well as the marine units that we worked with and any
other unit that was passing through and need any of
the items that you had sent.
I am honored and deeply humbled by the amount
of support that we received.
Its hard for me to comprehend that hard
working Americans are willing to give up there time
and money to help us.
I guess i just never thought that we
(soldiers) were in the fronts of peoples minds and
hearts like we are.
Thank you for opening my eyes to this.
I personally have never seen that what i do
as important or extraordinary.
I see my self as an average person who goes
to work everyday as yourself to support my family.
Now I don't think that I could express to you the
amount of thanks that every soldier and marine feels
from knowing that there are people who think of us.
Now I have an idea
that you may or may not be interested in.
I have been moved to Kandahar Air Field and
have been talking to the people who work there and
am wonder if you would like to shift your support to
doing this you would be supporting every person who
is on K.A.F. Just so you have a heads up K.A.F. is
one of the largest
installations in Afghanistan and has US Army,
Navy, Airforce, and Marines along with several other
nations and a large civilian contractor population.
The person I have been talking to here is MR.
Justin Espinoza and i gave him one of the letters
that came in your care package so that they will
also be able to contact you.
i will be thrilled if you are willing to do
this as a partnership with the USO is one of the
ultimate ways to help keep the troops going.
They are always trying to make the live of
deployed service members easier and a little less
Let me know what you think and be expecting
some sort of contact from the USO team here.
Thank you again for your support and though
it means a lot to every last one of us.
