1st Battalion 5th Marines Action Alert

My name is Josh Wright. I adopted the 1st Battalion 5th Marines stationed out of Camp Pendleton Oceanside, CA. during Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as during Operation Enduring Freedom. I know a few Marines that have deployed back out to defend our country, for a third to fifth tour. The Marines understand the sacrifices and are more than willing to make them. However, they are afraid that they will be forgotten while on deployment. I'd like to ensure that this doesn't happen. I have had the honor to meet these brave Marines in person and they are more then HEROES in my book. They are legends!

Through eMail Our Military, we're asking if your friends, family church and co-workers would like help support these Marines by donating some of the following items:

Thick Boot Socks (size 6-12)
Underwear (size 32-36)
Foot Cream
Heat Packs
Body Wash
Body Lotion
Instant Hot Cocoa Mix
Baby Wipes
Eye Drops
Small Flash Lights
Travel Size Snacks
Beef Jerky

You can also see additional suggestions for military care packages here.

These are a few of the items requested and just something to bring a small smile to their young faces to let them know we have not forgotten about them.

Additionally, our Marines and troops always enjoying getting letters and emails of support, the Sunday funnies, jokes, magazines (like Maxim, STUFF, Car and Driver, etc. ) and care packages.

If you can't drop these items off in person you may wish to ship these items to any of the locations listed.

Please consider using a priority mail flate rate box as it may be more economical.
