    Just want to let everyone know that this is a legit request and here is the text from the contacts. Lets help out these brave sailors for Christmas.

    Scott

    A good point of contact is LT Alderman, cc'd.

    Thanks again for supporting our Sailors! The Sailors at Camp Bucca are
    doing a great job; they come from all corners of the Navy to do the
    detainee ops mission, a difficult though absolutely critical job. BZ
    Navy for coming ashore and supporting her brothers and sisters in green
    during this crucial time in the fight.

    Cheers,

    Corey

    Corey,

    Yes I put in the request! We're trying to get something organized for
    our sailors her at Camp Bucca for the Christmas holiday!

    I want to put you in touch with our Command Chaplin, LT Ned Alderman,
    e-mail attached. He can be the POC for this along with RP2 Davis, his
    assistant.

    Thanks for getting in touch with me and the confirmation. A friend who
    sets these up stateside put me in touch with Ryan Rust and that's how we
    got to this point.

    Thanks again,

    R/

    Some good things to send are things that can be Microwaved like Cup O Soups. Bags of Jerky. Gum, and Tootsie Pops. My Son didn't care as much for the Candy but his Squadron Mates loved them.
