Want to help support a small medic unit? I've got dozens waiting!

NOTE - if you replied to this post to adopt a medical unit, bear with me. I got over 200 emails in response, which is terrific and much appreciated. But it does take some time to sort through, figure out which person should be matched to which unit, and to answer all of them. I'm just one person volunteering my time.

You can help immediately by clicking on the link below to donate funds to help us ship supplies to the over 70 medical units all over that we're supporting.

thanks for understanding!

All of these units are in small, remote combat support outposts with very few amenities. They are asking for simple, basic stuff that they just can't get over there! Like snacks, peanut butter, laundry detergent, etc. If you us can send even a single package with just some of the items, that will be a huge help!

If you can help, go to and make a donation to help us with shipping costs.
