OCONUS, 2023-05-13 - I hope this message finds you well. I am writing on behalf of a group of our brave service members currently deployed overseas. They are in need of some basic necessities that can make their challenging circumstances a bit more comfortable. Snacks, hygiene products, allergy meds as it is very dusty. Specifically, they are in need of hygiene products and snacks. Items like toothpaste, soap, deodorant, shaving cream, razors, wet wipes, as well as non-perishable snacks would make a significant difference in their daily lives.
These items not only fulfill basic needs but also bring a touch of home and a reminder that they are in our thoughts and appreciated. Our service members always strive to give their best, and your support can help them maintain their health, morale, and focus on their important work.
We understand that your organization has a history of generously supporting our troops, and we would be incredibly grateful if you could consider our request. Thank you for your time and consideration. We appreciate all that you do for our brave men and women in uniform.

Tallahassee, FL May 28, 2023 – This is my father’s gravestone located at the National Cemetery at Bushnell, Florida. He was buried with full military honors after 27 years’ military service that included tours in three wars. His generation saved the world from tyranny, and we rightfully honor them for their contributions to America. Amid the ceremonies this Memorial Day, let us not forget the daily sacrifices made by military families whose support makes our volunteer force the envy of the world. These families routinely endure years of uncertainty and chaos and how well they cope can determine a military career.
My father, like most of his generation, volunteered for the military after the attack on Pear Harbor. My dad fought in the Pacific in some of the bloodiest fighting of the war, including the Battle of Okinawa, and went on to serve with distinction in both Korea and Viet Nam.
All the while our family of seven tagged along and did what we could to make things work. We learned to adjust quickly to rapid change, new people, friends, and surroundings every three years. During our father’s tours of duty overseas, every family member assumed responsibility for various household chores and the home learned to operate independently, and successfully, despite the inconvenience.
Today’s military families face the same challenges and more and we should remember that they are the glue that holds everything together. This Memorial Day, let us also commend these families for their contribution to our national defense.
