An Early Birthday Wish

My birthday is just a little over two weeks away. I really don't like the reminder too much because it means in a few scant years I'll be the big 5 0. But I am going to use it as an excuse to help out some guys in Afghanistan.

CJ at Soldier's Perspective has a son who is in the Boy Scouts and they are taking orders to send popcorn to Afghanistan. They have just finished the orders to send to those in Iraq.

LAST UPDATE] Chris exceeded his goal with a total of $511 in sales. Thank you all for your orders. The popcorn arrives on November 19 and will be sent out that following Monday.

I have another request. The unit getting sent this popcorn has teams in the boonies of Afghanistan. The unit is an EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) unit, a very dangerous job to begin with in the military. These are people responsible for detonating IEDs. Anyway, some of the soldiers in Afghanistan literally live in mud huts throughout the Afghan desert. Again, I’m deeply grateful for all the popcorn bought so far.


My birthday wish is for some of you to send some very good popcorn to our guys in Afghanistan who are doing a very dangerous job and living in conditions that are awful. Clicking here will give you the details.

Thanking you in advance for making my birthday wish come true!!

I also hope the guys will have plenty of popcorn to munch on.
