Supporting Our Military... and Their Mission

So after you have your cheek swabbed to see if you can be a bone marrow donor for Navy Seal Justin (go to Blackfive and read all the details!), here's something else you can do to support our mission in Iraq...

This is from Chaplain Bjertness from the 1/125 Strike deployed in Iraq...

SOS for Smith Gate

Dear Friends,

I have a cause I think you may be interested in. At the FOB where I am located we have a walk-up clinic for Iraqi's. This clinic is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Legally, we cannot use medical supplies which have been designated for soldier use, so we get these supplies through Non-Governmental Organizations. At the moment these entities are in short supply. So, I am asking readers if they would like to help. Here is a list of what we need:

Triple Antibiotic Ointment
Silva dine (if there are any doctors or pharmicists interested this would be great)
Anti-itch cream
Children’s fever/ pain Meds (Tylenol, Motrin, generic- for all ages; infants, toddlers, and children)
Hydrocortisone cream
Eye drops (Saline tears, Visine)
Children’s Multi-Vitamins (Flintstones, generic)
Adult Multi-Vitamins
Eucerin Cream- great for skin that was burned and now itches
Lotions with Aloe and Vitamin E
Baby Shampoo (Johnson & Johnson)
Baby Powder (Johnson & Johnson)
Dove Soap (bar or liquid)
Shampoo travel size
Tooth Brushes Adult and Children
Tooth Paste
Dental Floss

Travel size or sample size items would be the best. All of these items will be distributed for Humanitarian Aid. If you are able to help these supplies can be sent to:

Chaplain (CPT) Bjertness
HHB 1/125 Strike
CSC Scania
APO AE 09331

Thank you for your consideration. Your efforts to help God's people here in Iraq is an important work that you do. God Bless you all.


And Happy Birthday, J!! We are very proud of you, son! Bravo Zulu!

Oh cool - so glad you posted about this too! Soldiers' Angels is on this, and a local church here in Loganville is going to be collecting stuff for the next month - all of us together will get these folks taken care of!

Good job! :)
