Hi,
I think everyone who wants to send him emails can do so, as he said he liked getting messages. Barb is doing this month's package. There is a link to donate to the paypal account for the soldier that Pat and Tina set up. I donated this month to defray some of the costs. I'm thinking that the packages can be rotated among the members and sent to Sam.
He's a former firefighter, very young, 20 and from Tennessee. I wish him and all members of the armed forces the very best, and hope they return home soon.

Aren't they all.

If you are interested in helping send packages please send a pm to Pat and let her know what you are willing to do.

hi - just checking in.

boca brats - if you want to get on the card rotation or send an email anytime, send me a p.m. or an email to oesnjstar@comcast.net and i'll give you his name and address.

kelcie did make a donation and i was in the store getting jerky, sunflower seeds, peanuts, etc. and skoal today. my husband donated some comedy dvds he has because he only has about a 1000 dvds although most of them are horror/sci fi. i called my friend carol who is on her way home from charleston and if she passes any tobacco stores to get me some more because the taxes in nj makes the stuff rediculous in price.

so if anyone wants email or letter writing duty let me know. i have march covered but april is just around the corner.

I've been emailing Sam. He's from Tennesee, and very nice. He's never been on a cruise, and I've been encouraging him to come to the forum when he has time. Cruising is 'greek' to him...

Yea....we have. The military teaches the ma'am thing...as well as a southern upbringing. No, I didn't see the 4 legger.

It seems like Sam has responded to every e-mail he's been sent. Which I find pretty awesome since after the Soldiers Angels website states that you should not expect any response. He seems surprised that anyone he doesn't know would be willing to send him packages. I asked him if there was anything in particular he would like and his response was that he has a hard time asking for anything he doesn't feel he deserves or has earned. Well in my opinion he's putting his a** on the line for us and he has earned and deserves anything we can do for him.

i totally agree barb. i had to email the kid 3 times before he would say he liked food and skoal. he comes from a military background so i guess it's just what they do and he doesn't think of it like we do.

Hi Pat and Barb,
I think Sam is an awesome individual. He loves talking sports, especially football. If there is anything else that needs to go in his care packages please let me know. It really is heartwarming that he is taking the time to post back to all of us given what limited free time that he has. I hope to get to meet him once he is stateside again.
Have a great Tuesday,
Kelcie

kelcie - you have already made a generous donation and i'm picking things up as i pass an aisle in the store. barb got a package out to him already so in 2 weeks or so i'll have a big one - might have to go in more than 1 flat rate box.

Be carefull, you will get like the rest of us buying 5 little lotions, 3 dental floss etc. Next thing you know you have a living room full of stuff to send.

I just got a surprise from Soldiers Angels. A invite to Southfork Ranch, where they filmed that tv show, to have lunch with Patti, the founder of Soldier's Angels. Iv never been to Parker TX, but Im thinking I should go. Id like to meet Patti in person.

Once we get the office set up in NYC, we might be able to make a small area where we can take in "overflow" items and place them in the next care package.

And, I agree, Sam is a wonderful young man.

when you get your office set up people can drop by with the stuff and i'd be happy to get it and take it home for packaging. i already have a box stuffed with stuff for the 2nd mailing.
