Action Not Words: Support the 3/25th Marines

The 3rd Battalion, 25th Regiment USMC(Reserve) has lost nearly 40 Marines since deploying to Iraq. They lost 21 Marines just last week alone.

Blackfive has plenty of details on the 3/25th...and also has a call to action. The 3/25th will likely be in Iraq until at least October, so there is plenty of time to send them packages and cards to show your support. A Marine Corps Captain explains how to help:
...It meant a great deal to us to know how much support we had from folks back home during those trying days. Many politicians and tv types talk about how their thoughts and prayers are with our troops there, but I believe that is not enough.

Actions of course always ALWAYS speak louder than words. If you can find it in your day please send them a box or even a letter to just let them know we have not forgotten them and that we hold them in th highest place of honor. 3/25 will probably be in Iraq until October. It takes about two weeks for mail to get to them.

You can send all sorts of stuff like books, magazines, dvds, candy, food, etc in a simple US Postal service flat rate box for less than 8 bucks. That's about two lattes at Starbucks. Most importantly you can also send a note or card for 37 cents and let a few American patriots know how much they mean to us.

The address for 3/25 is:

Adopt a Marine
c/o Capt Kasparian
3/25 H&S Co
Unit 72110
FPO, AE 09509-2110
Alternately, you can send a letter through MotoMail, which is fast and free.

The least we can do is show these guys that we're behind them. Send them something today.

UPDATE: Packages must be mailed by August 14th in order to reach the unit before their "mail stop" dated (since they'll be heading home in a few months), so SEND SOMETHING NOW!
