1/5 support


Thank you for taking a second out of your busy work schedule, to read my little letter. My name is Josh Wright I have adopted the 1st Battalion 5th Marines stationed out of Camp Pendleton Oceanside, Ca during Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as Operation Enduring Freedom. I know a few Marines that have deployed back out to defend our country, a third to fifth tour. The Marines they understand the sacrifices & are willing to make them. They are afraid that they will be for gotten well on deployment. Please I would like to see that not happen !! These brave Marines I have had the honor to meet them personally, they are more then HEROES in my book. They are legends !

I was just wondering if your family, friends, church & co-workers would like help support some Marines deploying out? By sending the Marines thick boot socks(size 6-12), underwear (size 32-36) , foot cream, hand warmer pack/heat packs, body wash / lotion, instant hot cocco mix, baby wipes, eye drops, chewing tobacco, batteries, small flash lights, travel size snacks and beef jerky. Those are just a few of the items the Marines ask for. It’s just something to place a small smile on their young faces & let them know we have not for gotten about them. The Marines & troops always enjoying getting letters of support, the Sunday funnies, jokes, magazines likes ( FMF, Maxim, STUFF, car & truck ) care package or anything for that matter from some one they have never met.

Flat Rate priority mail boxes are always a cheap way to go. It cost around $9 - $13 to send a flat rate box, but you can pack it as every as you like. Please make sure to tell the post office you are sending the box to a war zone. They will give you a customs form you need to fill out…. It will ask what kind of items are in the box, just write in candy. The box will get to the Marines a lot faster.
If you would like to donate items …. The locations are listed below.
