I don't know, seems so weird...they lost their friends...so tragic...and then they ask for this stuff, I don't know what to make of it honestly. It feels almost like a joke. =/In the early months of 2012, a soldier from the Indiana National Guard's 713th Engineer Company stationed in Afghanistan sent a note asking for help:
My unit and I just suffered a HORRIFIC loss in just the first nine weeks of a 12-month tour out in Afghanistan, so I was hoping that a care package from you guys would help ease the pain a little for the guys that are still here in the fight.
I was in the 8th truck; five soldiers were in the 3rd truck of our convoy. We were all out on a mission when they ran over an IED [improvised explosive device]. We were able to save one of my soldiers in that truck. THANK GOD FOR THAT!
The soldier, seeking to help his team recover from a tragedy that occurred during what one official called a "very important" but "extremely dangerous" mission, knew what was needed:
Any fighting or boxing games
Any sports games
2 extra PS3 controllers
2 extra Xbox controllers
External hard drive
