If you know of anyone who can help...

This post will remain up top for much of August. If in fact posting this is against the rules, I would like someone to let me know ASAP so I can remove it.

As many of you know, my brother will be heading to Kosovo in a couple months for a years deployment on a peace mission. Currently, they are hopeful that they, the unit, may have one last visit with their family and friends before they leave for that year.

In order to do this, they are seeking donations to fund transportation in order to see their families. The time frame is short in which to raise the money--August 24th is the end of the fundraiser. If they are able to raise the money, this will give the troops 5 days in which to see their wives, husbands, kids, moms and dads, etc.

They need to raise $34,000 for 5 buses which cost $6800 each. If anyone out there knows of someone, a company or anything that may help please forward this information:

Make checks payable to "American Legion Post 518"
Memo: "for 2-135 IN BN"

Mail to:
American Legion Post 518

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your support of the soldiers. It means the world to them! If you have any other questions, please contact me through email or in my comment section.
