Harrison37 Iraq deployment support thread
 
Mods please sticky.

Alright people, gather round! Our own Harrison37 (aka: Kirk) is in Kuwait with his unit and will be heading into Iraq as soon as they finish training. Several here have expressed a desire to give aid and comfort to American Forces and H37's boys in particular, this thread will hopefully be the place for that to happen. I've asked Kirk to look for it, to post updates as his time allows, and to share with us specific items which will enhance he and his boy's morale in country - which we can pool together and provide as our hearts and wallets dictate.

With a one year deployment this thread could get a bit lengthy, so I'm going to start a seperate thread for people to start expressing well wishes and link it here, Kirk will have precious little time between now and getting settled into their forward base, so long "we love our Soldier" threads can be bypassed for more critical issues (like who got re-signed, signed, or drafted by the Patriots) and the other stuff can be caught up later as he has time.

Link threads on specific activities with the team here, and if you know he has an interest in a specific subject (like unsavory activity in the Political forum of another fan site), but don't go overboard. In case you're wondering his user name gives you a hint at things he might be interested in. As he posts updates on the activities of his unit, we can start a seperate discussion thread for each one and link it back here. If someone has a smarter way to manage things feel free to sing out, my user name is fairly accurate about my short comings! Don't be shy about giving him a synopses of the threads you link, try to keep it to a small paragraph though.

Right, any questions? Then let's rock and roll!

Stay safe!

And the Planet thread with a link to the Political forum should you care to watch the train wreck in slo-mo!

Again, please put your well-wishes in this thread: http://www.patriotsplanet.com/BB/sho...5&pagenumber=1

The previous well wishes that were here were moved to that thread.

This sticky is mainly for H37 to be updated on what's going on and to update us when he has the time, and to let us know what the boys need for those who want to send aid, if I understand the process correctly.

Well, folks- as has been said before- we're in Kuwait getting ready to go north.

Camp Buehring is in the desolate northern portion of Kuwait, some 50 miles from the Kuwait-Iraq border.


We've been conducting training, offloading our gear and just doing the last few things we need to get accomplished before we go.

Eventually, I'll have a website set up and post the link so you can follow our tour over the course of the year. Also- keep a lookout for us in the news- 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division "The Dragons" out of Fort Riley.

That's all for now- thanks again for all the kind words and wishes of support from all who have posted.

My fiance was at Ft. Riley many years ago, Bravo Company 1st of 18 ("Bravo Bulls") for nearly 6 years. Please stay safe and keep us updated as often as you can.

Indeed it is.

Well- I made it to Baghdad in one piece and am now trying to get settled for what should be an interesting year.

So far so good with the new security plan being implemented city-wide, and we'll see how it goes.

Thanks for the continued support!
