Received this call for help from Soldiers' Angels. Since I'm working from a Dial-Up connection on vacation, I'll paste the whole email:
I hope this email finds you doing well. It has been a while since we chatted. Thank you for everything you do everyday to advance the cause of supporting our brave heroes.
I am emailing you today because we need your assistance. We received an urgent request from one of our brave medics asking for help. It seems that they have 4 ambulances that have no armor at all and well – you can understand why this is not a good thing in that region. Of the four, only two ambulances go out of the green zone at a time, so he has requested we send 12 blankets to provide some protection in each emergency vehicle. Here is the note from this hero:
I have 4 ambulances but I only use 2 to go out of the green zone. Based on this I can use 4 seat blankets, 4 floor blankets and 4 blankets I will use in the patient compartment for medics or casualties riding there. These items will give me 2 ambulances with some protection. I was told today that our supply system ordered 4 armor doors(for 2 ambulances) for the front compartment. This is great news. I understand my request can get expensive but me and my soldiers will appreciate any help. Thanks a lot and God Bless!
We are working hard to get these armored blankets out right away. However, the cost for each blanket is $935 which includes shipping and insurance. We need your help to get these blankets to our heroes so that they will have an added layer of protection as they go out to rescue their wounded friends – our wounded heroes.
