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.

Well today I found out that I can celebrate Christmas for a second time in less than a couple of weeks. Here’s the really good news… YOU CAN TOO!

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!

LCpl De Young can count on me, once mom De Young sends us his mailing address. And as DCG reminded us, be sure to put some dog treats for Cena in the folds of those olive drab shirts & socks in your care package!

You can count our family in. I will talk to our Marine son-in-law tomorrow, and put him on it also. He is an officer in our local Marine Corp. League, and he might get them to participate. I was feeling blah today w/ all the Christmas decorations and kids gone–this really helps!

Hey Jeff, it’s Steve from Fellowship of the minds. Do you have any suggestions as to which organizations which would be best served. Your right…..I/We kinda just seem to think about you guys still in harms way, but seem to forget that many have come before you and have been been hurt……..and some hurt badly. Let us know where you think we could do the most good OK. Thanks for opening our eyes. Stay safe buddy…………….Steve
