    Still trying to upload videos but %^$#@&^%@ Photobucket won't allow a file bigger than 100MB

    Thanks again to everyone who donated and to the mods and admin staff, without whose help this would not be possible!

    Just a quick update:

    Back in the big sandbox doing what I do again

    DVDs will be going out this week hopefully getting where they need to go by Christmas. I probably should have sent them while I was home on my R&R but I was....ummmmm....busy with the wife

    Thanks again to all the contributors and to the mod/admin staff. You have all made a huge impact on the lives of these children and more likely than not gave them the only gifts they have gotten this year.

    DAMN! Forgot to put this up publically.......

    Several Spartans have said they had mailed out parcels after I said I would burn the DVD's.

    I'd like to get everyones donations on one DVD, so everyone who has contributed can see theirs and everyone else's going out to these kids.

    My op tempo has increased dramatically in the past few weeks and I have most certainly been remiss on updating this thread. Please excuse the oversight and I promise pics will be added soon!

    Hey all-

    Just wanted to let everyone know that this package from Hooch will be the last unfortunately.

    I've spent way too long in country and have neglected my own family for too much time. I've decided to pack it in and will call it quits for this country in June.

    All members who have donated will get the promised DVD with everyone's donations being shown getting handed out.

    I'm completely s**faced after a long f**king day- lost 2 very good people and might lose 1 more. Excuse the post if it''s a tad rambling but tradition holds and demands drinks for the fallen, be they local national or expat.

    I've been kind of remiss in my duties her but it's been a rough tour- even my last R&R was a bear to get through.

    To all those who have donated- you have TRULY done God's work, no matter which God you pray to.

    Above all I thank you Spartans, as a whole, for making this the success it has been. We have given light to children who know only darkness. We have brought joy into mean, hardscrabble lives. We have shown that we do care about the people here and want to improve their lives.

    Above all we have shown that generosity and kindness transcend religious barriers as I have had donations from Christian, Jew, Muslim and Buddhists. You, fellow Spartans, have made a difference in a small child's life and given them things they will remember for a lifetime.

    While you were not there to share the joy and happiness firsthand, when you get your DVD you will be able to see the pure, unadulterated happiness in the faces of these children.

    You have done me proud Sparta. Hold your head high knowing you contributed to a righteous cause and that nobody can ever take that from you.

    Coyote out

    Hey man,

    I'm sorry to hear about your buddies over there, and want to say Thanks again for all that you do. You guys put your neck on the line for the rest of us all over the world, and we appreciate it.

    Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to help out over there in the small way that we can.

    Hoochman's package has been delivered and distributed

    This one, being the last, was as great as the first. The amazing outpouring of support from my fellow Spartans truly moved me.

    I'm due for some R&R soon and I will try again to upload the videos from prior packages and burn DVDs. Got some great footage from this one also

    Again I would like to thank the Admin staff and Mods here on RepGeek for allowing this thread to continue and for waiving the no personal info rule. Without their support, this would have come to naught. Also the credit goes to you fellow Spartans for taking the time and effort to send these packages out. I was simply the mailman.

    There are a few times in life when a man is truly aware of how good his life actually is. For me seeing these children and the conditions that they live in made all the "economic downturn" news seem like Chicken Little. We have houses or apartments. We all own cars. Electric comes on when we turn the switch and we can drink from the tap. We can walk to a store and buy whatever we need to survive. We all have TV's, computers, comfortable furniture, access to education, good medical care, vaccinations, vitamins, SHOES.

    For all the doom and gloom people, reread this thread. See the joy a simple box of socks and shoes can bring to someone. Look at the faces of the parents and the gratitude shown therein. You aren't there yet and I pray to God you never will be. Sit back and enjoy a lifestyle that a lot of the rest of the world would give their legs for.

    Thank you again Spartans, on behalf of myself, my Task Force and the Iraqi people.

    UPDATE:

    One request- will those who have donated please PM me their mailing addresses so I can get these shipped out? I managed to leave the customs forms at home in my office safe

    SFA - thanks for posting the pic it really hit me. Being a Dad myself makes me think how lucky we are to have the life we have compared to these people.

    You can expect at least a couple of boxes from us.

    You're a good man.

    Gents thanks for the kind wishes but Operation RG has been closed.

    I am currently sitting home waiting on surgery due to injury and am unlikely to head back over. TF Valhalla has been rotated back Stateside to their originating units.

    It was definitely a great moment in my life, and to those who missed it- you can still do good right in your own neighborhood. Look around you and you will undoubtedly see someone in need.

    Once I go back home I will gather anything I can I dont knwo if you can accept PP donations.

    btw just wanted to add up to this

    "Now here's the point. One village we deal with is dirt poor. I don't mean no TV poor; I am talking no running water, no safe drinking water, no electricity, mud hut poor. What they are very heavy on is Islam and it's attendant predjudices against females.

    The little girls in this village are essentially neglected unless one of them is promised to another, richer, relative as a wife (sometimes as young as 8 or 9 years old). Needless to say it is rough on all of us seeing how these kids live."


    You know its a cultural thingy nothing to do with Islam or anything like that nor Islam has inspired them to such practices
