Help! Someone Stole from the Troops!
Move America Forward | December 19, 2012
Friends, we have some tough news to break. As horrible as it sounds, there are people out there who are willing to steal from the troops. Last night, just before a big shipment was planned to go out, some criminal broke the lock to the location where we were storing about 400 care packages. The thieves didn’t take them all, but they stole about $5,000 worth of packages that were meant for the troops in Afghanistan.
You have to ask yourself, what kind of a heartless person would steal from a non-profit organization known for shipping care packages to the troops in Afghanistan?
We have filed a police report and taking special measures to make sure that our packages are secure, but the damage has already been done. Our volunteers, who worked for hours over the weekend preparing those packages to get shipped out, are devastated.
It’s very tough for us to get over this, but if you, our members, would be generous and kind enough, we need help to make up the difference. We hate to think that some of our troops will miss out on a great care package this year, all because of some unkind and unpatriotic criminals.
There are only 9 days left until Christmas. Please help us recover from this loss and make sure our troops over in Afghanistan don’t miss out this year!
The battle wages on in Afghanistan as our US-led coalition trains the Afghan security forces. They are in harm’s way so that we enjoy our Independence and Liberty. That is why we are celebrating every one of our heroes during the Christmas season.
