More on FET

Well, well, well.  Here’s a short article worth the read.  Looks like the 27th Infantry Brigade Combat Team is fielding FET’s to Afghanistan.  Hot diggity.
I heard from the ABOL team in Afghanistan this week — 18 had arrived at of their Friday night.  18 regular bundles, no SSP bundles. The good thing about places like Iraq and Afghanistan is that mail arrives every day, weather and transportation and other things permitting.

More in the morning.

Folks, I’m going to spend the next two months trying to help some people in Afghanistan.

I reached out and made contact with the Cultural Support Team leadership with the US Forces in Afghanistan, and we’ve worked out the kinks on how to do it.

If you’re interested, and want to help, well, I’d certainly welcome it.

Why Afghanistan, why through the CST’s?  I’m a big fan of the Female Engagement Team concept.  They play a great role in Afghanistan, as I see it, and they have great placement and access for helping others.  And they happen to have some ongoing projects that involve fabric — mostly sewing, but at least one quilting.

So, leave me a comment here on the website, or send me an email if you have my address, and I will send to you the details.

And, as always, thanks in advance for all that you’re doing to help with this.  I think it’s awesome.
