Update on Battle Zone Flag Fundraiser
February 27, 2007
After some discussion between myself and Anthony, we’ve decided to add a 2nd Battle Zone Flag to the raffle. The reason for this is, as we stated this morning, we plan to continue the raffle until the end of March. While we’ve reached the goal of $650 to allow 1SG Rodriguez to get the Challenge Coins for his soldiers, as we said, anything more that we raise will be donated to 3BSTB, 1Cav’s Family Readiness Group, so that they can plan and put together a wonderful Hero’s Homecoming for the guys. I’d love to see us reach or surpass $1000, so that we can also donate to ensure that these Heroes receive the WELCOME HOME that they deserve. As I said, the guys will be home sometime this fall… not sure on the return date yet, so the FRG is already in the planning stages of the Welcome Home, due to all the logistics that have to be arranged, with the size of this unit. In the end, the proceeds that are donated to the FRG, WILL benefit this same group of troops, when they arrived back home at Fort Hood.
Thanks once again, for the fantastic response we’ve had to this fundraiser so far. Every single one of you is AMAZING!!!
