This was posted in the Support our troops section but wasn't getting any views...

I had mentioned that we ought to send a care package over to some Polish troops. I have done some nosing around. Hell I am a saleman. I can find anybody anywhere.

Here is a response I got from the PIO on the Ground.

Not looking for people to say "I'm In" right now. I know everybody here will come up with a little something. I am looking for advise on what to send and how to pull this off. It would be really cool if we could do some akforum t-shirts or something, but you guys comment.


Finally got a solid email back from the PIO in Iraq...see below

LTC Andrzej STEGIENKO
Chief of PIO


Hello Rob !
Dzień Dobry Panie Robercie !

It was for me personnally a grear surprice when I received your e-mail. I am proud of we are doing here in Iraq to support Global War on Terror.
We are staniding together, we are standing united.
Our commitment to duty is widely known and greatly appreciated among Coalition and public audience all araund the world.
I am very glad having support not only in my country but also in the USA.
We, Multinational Division Center South, are having in mind any support from people all around the world.
Now there are more than 900 polish soldiers including 32 women, we can think about packages to the troops here. I am very open to any proposal. Please send me more details of your iniciative. As far I know cosmetics, higenics items, T-shirts, socks are the most suitable now.

Very respectfully,

You got a good APO address to ship a box to...........

Let us know where you want us to send monetary donations. I would think you would take the money, buy the goods, and mail to them.

Let us know.

Good Job!!

I was kinda thinking Pallet (s) not box. I never do anything halfway...

What is the cheapest we could get t shirts down to....

As far as products, gatorade, etc, I think I could easily negotiate some deals or freebies from the manufacturers. Most of the quality ak47.net guys are here, but I am sure our friends at gunco will support this too...

In a perfect world, I would like to come up with something where most of the polish troops will at least hear of this..I know its a big plan, but very feasible...They probably are not used to the stream of items that the US troops get from groups here. At least thats my guess.

I think you should get a cash collection together, buy what they identified in their letter to you, and box it up and mail it.

I don't see a problem with asking the membership for (1) Five Dollar Bill to help the Polish Troops.

Thoughts?

Right now,if a few members wrote a note to put in there, it would go a long way...I can send the maximum amount of gatorade and hygiene products for small amount of $$...

I will send a couple of large boxes over there with some letters from us. After that I imagine we may get letters or emails back. If we do, I may need ask for a collection.

Right now I would be most appreciative if a few guys took the time to write a short note to the troops for me to enclose.

I'll send 'em a genuine Las Vegas hooker if they send me a de-milled Beryl parts kit. :mrgreen:


What sort of hygiene products are you going to send? Are you going "dollar store" shopping?

Not sure yet...I kinda wanted to send a test package or two on monday...If they get through and we get a response I was going to ask for help.

I really would like a few of you at least to get me a message to put in there with some good wishes, your email etc. so that they realize this is from a group, not just me.

emails, pms, whatever. I am going to write a little about me, a note thanking them for being there, and ask that they write back with their stories and any wishes...And if they write back we ought to send them a shopping list c/w photos :twisted:

My email is [email protected]

I figure we should get a dialogue going on with them...They may be future suppliers....
