Soldiers of Combat Outpost Keating Need Our Help!

by Lisa Graas, editor --

From Stardust Radio:

56 members of Bravo Troop 361 Cavalry have had their entire forward base –
Combat Outpost Keating – destroyed, along with all of their belongings, except
for the clothes they were wearing when attacked by insurgents in Afghanistan.
Worse, they have lost some of their unit members and others were arilifted out
for treatment of wounds. Many others continued to fight, despite their wounds
and blood transfusions were made from soldier to soldier during the fight as
help could not get in to the base.

Some of the items will be replaced by the military, but just as they had to prepare for deployment by packing up their own supplies, they again need certain items that are not replaced by the military. We need to step up and help them – we need to get these items into packages right away. We need to let these American Heroes of Freedom know that they are not forgotten and that we are here for them.

Read the whole thing at Stardust Radio including information on how to donate.

UPDATE: Better yet, go to Burn Pit for more information and video.

Hat-tip to OP FOR.
