As we have announced in previous posts, Terri and I have decided to raise the fundraiser goal. While we have raised the $650 needed to give the members of 3BDE STB, 1Cav Div. their challenge coins, we are asking for just a little bit more. I know the great readers out there will help us reach this new goal of $1000.
The extra $350 will be used to help the Family Readiness Group prepare for these fine soldiers’ homecoming. The Heroes Homecoming is a very special and emotional event for these soldiers. It will be the first time seeing their loved ones, families, and friends in over a year. We are so close to our goal, a few more donations will help to make this a very special day for the soldiers of the 3BDE STB, 1Cav. Div.
I almost forgot. As a special incentive, we have aquired a second flag from FOB Warhorse. Now everyone who donates will have a chance to win one of the two flags.
[Update by Terri] Thought I’d add some pictures of some of the guys in 3rd Brigade, 1CD, so you all could get an idea of who the HEROES are that we’re conducting this fund raiser for.
