Christmas Card Campaign for the Troops
Members of the Lamorinda Republican Women Federated are encouraging friends and colleagues to join a Christmas card campaign for the troops in Afghanistan. Operation Letters for Our Leathernecks is being coordinated by KSFO and Brian Sussman. Members of the Lamorinda RWF wish to honor a local soldier and former candidate for State Assembly who called home on Thanksgiving and told his dad how sad it was that most of the guys don’t get any correspondence from home or care packages like he receives.
Cards need to arrive at KSFO by December 6. Mail to: KSFO 560 “Letters for Our Leathernecks”, 55 Hawthorne Street 10th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105. Learn more here. Read this article by Melanie Morgan that chronicles this soldier’s College Republican activities while at SFSU and his decision to join the Marines in the midst of efforts to shut down the Berkeley recruiting center.
Thanks for anything you can do to help make this a success and bring some Christmas Cheer to our troops in Afghanistan!
