Default Request from Soldiers in Iraq

I rec'd this request from LT Russel. Let's see what we can do to show our support for these guys.
(he said new or used DVD's, it didn't matter)

I am currently deployed with the Idaho National Guard in Iraq. I am
trying to establish a hunting DVD library for the soldiers here. We are
all a bunch of rednecks and wish we could be hunting, but we have
already missed one season and we will miss the one this year. If we had
DVDs that we could watch it might help. I know that I might be asking
alot but I am looking for donations of videos for my deployed
soldiers.This would mean alot to them to pass some of the time that we
have here.

We are also going to be having an Elk, Turkey, Goose and Duck calling
contest. I am looking for some calls to be dontated or even prizes for
the contestants. I would really appreciate any help that you would be
willing to give us here in IRAQ. We are willing to take pictures of our
Elk and duck Calling contests for your magazines or catalogs or website.

Maybe you should pin this to the top. I can get him some copies of DVD's, but will be a few weeks. Just want to make sure I can find this again to send them to him.

I'll be more than happy to donate a couple of turkey calls that I no longer use .
Any chance that the Lt. and his guys have e-mail access so that we can corespnd with them too ?

we have family medical problems right now so I'm short on time. But I know if someone would take the time to forward the requests for calls to a few of the manufacturers and probably even the DVD requests to folks that market them, they'd probably send one person a bunch of stuff from each company and then it could be forwarded on. Its not that much work and not difficult. The companies were always responsive for jr 4H type programs and will be for our military.

Someone take the time please

PS I bet they have no access to VHS. Bet they can play the dvd on any laptop of which there are many

I sent another email to LT Russell asking him about vhs tapes and the mailing address.

I don't want to sound to needy and don't want people to have to spend a lot
of money but if we had another VHS machine we could sign it out and let
soldiers that it back to their rooms and watch movies. The only VHS we have
right now is at a Company Headquarters but I still have people that come and
watch the videos we have already received. Thanks for your support.
As for mailing yes it does go to the APO account. If you send it air it gets
here in about 10 days snail mail takes about 30.
Thanks again.

So, go ahead and send VHS tapes. I've got a used VHS player I'll send to them.

Thanks for the interest everybody.. You guys/gals are the best!

Hey everyone,

I work for some hunting, shooting and fishing magazines. We've started a program to show our support for the troops deployed overseas. You can check it out here:

I am also going to send some of our DVDs and other fun stuff we have in the office to the soldier that posted above.

Thanks!
