A Christmas Blessing that will keep on Giving for our Soldiers Overseas

Wise Men Still Seek Him and Give Gifts

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
1-245th AOB
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.

Oklahoma Primary and the Importance Thereof

I’m in Nebraska.

Why do I care what happens in the Oklahoma primary election on July 27?

By Shelli Dawdy (aka StubbornFacts)

While I do have a number of friends and contacts there, that is not what drives my concern. I have come to believe that Oklahoma is at the tip of a spear that for so many reasons, is pointing in the right direction. Oklahoma has a very strong, organic movement comprised of resolute people committed to the Constitution. It is considered by many the home of State Sovereignty and it requires less digging to find some strong legislators at their Capitol than in my own and other states.

Senator Randy Brogdon

State Representative Charles Key and State Senator Randy Brogdon, are at the top of that list; they have taken on issues like State Sovereignty and REAL ID, just to name two.

OKR3publicans Endorse the Conservative RJ Harris in CD04

Press Release for Immediate Release

Subject:  Oklahoma R3publicans Endorse RJ Harris  for Congress in CD04


“The choice in District 4 was obvious,” noted Sandra Crosnoe for Oklahoma R3publicans,  “RJ Harris is the only Constitutional, limited government candidate in the race. Harris’ understanding of the proper role of government and his ability to articulate core principles is among the most solid I’ve seen in my many years in politics,” Crosnoe went on to say.

Harris stands head and shoulders above his incumbent opponent in the race. His love for Oklahoma, his honorable nature, and commitment to family are apparent to all who know him. His many years of service both to Oklahoma and our country, which include two active tours of duty overseas, are further evidence of a steadfast character.

RJ Harris has been actively involved in the Republican party and is clearly committed to the restoration of the republic. Through his speeches at rallies and events, Harris has been leading the way back to the Constitution and the proper role of government.  His proven character, ability to commit and persevere in difficult circumstances, and his thorough knowledge are exactly what is needed in the U.S. Congress, right now.

OKR3s urge District 4 voters to carefully consider their Congressional vote in the upcoming July 27 primary. There are only two candidates on the ballot and the winner of the primary will be the next U.S. Congressman for Oklahoma’s 4th District.

RJ Harris’ website contains additional information on issues and events.  He can be contacted via email to contact[at]rjharris2010[dot]com .

Sandra Crosnoe serves on the policy board for R3publicans and can be reached via email to sandiec99[at]hotmail[dot]com. R3publicans participate with other groups in Oklahoma to provide timely information via OKgrassroots online.

Oklahoma R3publicans are working to restore the republic in the Republican party in Oklahoma. Our state is one of the “reddest” in the nation and we are pleased to be a part of that dynamic.  R3s are grassroots, philosophically constitutional people of principle actively working to inspire Republicans to positive action.  We believe that powers not expressly delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states and to the people.  Our efforts across Oklahoma are focused on limited constitutional government.

For the Win in 2010 Series Note: This is third in a series of endorsements to be released by Oklahoma R3s. It is worth noting that many people working to restore the republic have been involved in all phases of the primary season and are working hard to elect people with constitutional limited government principles, so in one sense this is a formal way of letting everyone know who we have been helping and working with this season.

Oklahoma: RJ Harris endorsement from Sooner Republican Assembly

RJ Harris attended four events this past Saturday. He received the endorsement of the Sooner Republican Assembly with over 80% of the vote, and he was well received by the State GOP “Spolight on the Candidates” attendees.


PRLog (Press Release)Jun 28, 2010 – On Saturday, June 26, 2010, RJ Harris attended four events: the Sooner Republican Assembly Meeting, the State GOP’s “Spotlight on the Candidates”, the Glen Beck Block Party put on by the Sooner Tea Party, and the Cleveland County Republican Women’s Club “Ice Cream Social”.  Harris was received with great enthusiasm at all four events on Saturday. Harris said “I was enthused and humbled to see so many patriotic citizens show up to the events this past Saturday.  Our fight to take back our country has never looked so promising.”

The Sooner Republican Assembly made their endorsements for state wide Republican candidates.  RJ Harris received the endorsement with over 80% of the vote. You can view these results and the Sooner Republican Assembly’s summary of the meetings activities here http://soonergop.blogspot.com.  In addition to winning the groups endorsement, “two resolutions were proposed, both of which passed unanimously. The first condemned the recent decision to ban 4th District Congressional candidate R.J. Harris from future Cleveland County Republican Party events. The second was a motion of no confidence in the county’s GOP chair and vice chair.” – Sooner Republican Assembly (http://soonergop.blogspot.com/)

One of the highlights of the day’s activities occurred when, Wanda, a lovely lady and GOP activist attending the State GOP “Spotlight on the Candidates” event, asked RJ the most important question a candidate can answer: “why are you running against our incumbent republican?”

Harris responded stating: “this particular incumbent republican [Cole] has voted for bailouts, voted for the Nancy Pelosi Stimulus Package, and he voted to fund Planned Parenthood.  No republican that has ever voted for these things should be sent back to Washington to represent the conservative constituents of Oklahoma.  This is why you shouldn’t vote for my opponent, but the reason you should vote for me is because I will fight for our individual liberty and our state’s sovereignty.  I would never vote for the dozens of liberal and unconstitutional pieces of legislation that my opponent has.”
