Recently RJ Harris let us know online that he had given a DVD player to the USO for his unit in Afghanistan. Here is what RJ posted there on December 14th:
I donated a DVD player to the Dutch Restaurant which serves as our USO here on MNB-TK. Now we just need to get some movies to watch. If you would like to help out, please donate your old DVD movies for our coalition soldiers to watch during our down time. Send me a fb email and we will set something up. All DVDs I recieve will go to our little theater at the Dutch Restaurant on TK:)
R3s thought it would be nice to let everyone know how they can help them out all year long with videos for great entertainment in their off hours. They are serving our country in difficult circumstances and we all look forward to their prompt safe return to our shores. You can now send materials directly to the following address:
CW2 RJ Harris
FOB Tarin Kowt
APO AE 09380
Soldiers will be happy to receive the DVDs you no longer want, so use this opportunity to do a little clearing out! And there’s no need to worry about duplicated titles being sent; RJ is going to share duplicates with other units. Don’t have any DVDs you want to part with? A new one would be appreciated, too, of course. You can order things and have them sent directly using the same address via Amazon.com and many other stores often with free shipping for gift certificates (hint hint). Here are some special instructions for entering APO addresses at Amazon.com as needed (you enter APO in the city field, AE in the state field, zip code as usual and United States in the country even though shipping overseas).
***Of course, prayers are always most welcomed and appreciated ***
The best part of Christmas is blessing others and this is something that can be done now and later too. It will keep on giving to those serving our country throughout the year!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too!
Here is a Merry Christmas from Afghanistan on youtube from other units overseas. First one is from 2006 and second one 2010.
