Latest Update: Here’s a pic of Jeff and Cena taking a break…
Update 01/06/10 : We have a mailing address for Lance Cpl. Jeffrey De Young. He’s requested drab olive T-shirts, Sox, and some Medical supplies. See comments section here for items needed.
Update: As of 01/04/10 we have not heard back from Jeff’s Mother concerning where to send C.A.R.E. packages.
Folks, I could NOT be anymore excited than I am right now. One of my favorites things about Christmas is the giving of gifts to others, and I especially enjoy it when a gift is going to someone who is in real need.
Please go to the following link. Read the brief article then read the comments below the article. We actually got family members and the Marine himself to come to the blog and communicate with us. We asked if they needed anything and Jeff came back with very simple requests. The items are listed in his latest comment.
Also, Jeff typed out a list of fellow Marines with their trusty companions (bomb sniffing dogs) and asked that we pray for all of them. Please help out with both requests. These men and their Canine companions do so much for us that surely we can do these small things for them.
I have written to Jeff’s Mom and am waiting for an address where we can send the requested items. If you are willing to help, please leave your name and a brief comment below!
