A note from a Marine Lieutenant in adopted Platoon at FOB TAGAB

Tip of the Spear, a volunteer group, sends packages and supplies to our servicemen and women serving our country in Afghanistan. There is no refrigeration so the troops in Afghanistan get a wet sock, put a water bottle in it and hang it in the shade.  It cools down the water so they can drink it. This photo was taken in the Nawa District of the Helmond province of Afghanistan. Tip of the Spear is also having their annual fundraiser October 17. One hundred percent from this fundraiser will go directly towards purchasing the contents of the packages and postage to send them.

“I just wanted to say thank you once again for all of the support that “Tip of the Spear” has shown the Platoon here at FOB TAGAB. This morning we received the microwave that was sent by your wonderful organization. All of the soldiers were extremely excited and overwhelmed by everything that you, the “Tip of the Spear” team, have done for them these past few months.

I cannot express to you how much all of the support has truly meant to every individual. It is evident with every package received how much time and love was placed into the packaging for the soldiers. The commitment that the organization has shown to the soldiers has helped to keep every individual’s moral high. Your organization has contributed immensely to everything that we as a Platoon have been able to accomplish due to this increasing moral.

Again, I can never thank you enough for everything that you and the organization have done. I look forward to you receiving the letters of gratitude and hope that we can find some way to help this great organization continue to support troops. Have a wonderful day.”
