A Deployed Soldier craves an American treat

Soldiers complete fire qualification/request care packageSoldiers from 3rd Battalion, 13th Field Artillery successfully completed M270A1, Multiple Launch Rocket System, crew live fire qualification Feb. 26, at Fort Sill, Okla.OCONUS, 2-25-2015- Soldier Francis -- is currently deployed. His unit, an artillery brigade, is originally from Oklahoma. He wrote to Support Our Troops from our contact page, asking for a simple donation of a care package of something that will help him ease the transition to being so far away. He’ll be overseas for another eight months, and he misses home. He asked for beef jerky for him and his fellow soldiers.

Here’s his letter:

Good Morning. First of all thank you and God bless you to all the things you do and for supporting the troops and Soldiers all over the world. My Unit is currently deployed right now and we would really appreciate if you can help us with some of those delicious beef jerky. I really appreciate all the help. We currently don’t have any jerky in our location. The Soldiers would love and appreciate all the help you can do. Give us a little taste of home. We just got here and we’ll be here for the next 8 months. Hoping for your kind consideration.

SOT is working on his request. Please message us if you can, and donate to help fill this unit’s request for support.
