This week Netroots For The Troops® got a request via email. Sargent First Class Vires was trying to get Mechanix Wear gloves. After trying thru all the proper channels to get them from supply, he reached out to us after seeing our name on Mechanix Wears site.
Needless to say we were happy to grant his request. As you're reading this 24 pairs of Tactical gloves are in the process of being shipped to his unit. Cost? Under $300 dollars including shipping.
A QUICK NOTE
SFC Vires' unit is an OMLT, called omelet. Operational Mentor Liaison Teams
OMLTs mentor the ANA in leadership, staff, and support functions, planning, assessing, supporting, and execution of operations and training doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures. In addition to training and mentoring the ANA the ETTs and OMLTs provide the ANA access to combat enablers such as close air support/fires, medical evacuation, and quick reaction All of these countries come together to train and mentor Afghanistan's all volunteer Army.
We have more than sufficient funds to do this small request, however if you want to contribute to this effort feel free to make a donation here.
We will always take your donations anytime of year and for any occasion. An honorarium to a veteran or a loved one who may not have been a vet. It's your call.
Please make a donation HERE. Thank you from the entire 2012 NFTT Team.

Mojo Friday Guidelines
1) If you comment you have to recommend all comments. (in order to receive mojo you have to give mojo. It's only good mojo manners.)
2) Everything you say may be taken as a joke (so if you ask a question, expect a silly answer)
3) You must recommend the diary (and pimp it unapologetically)
4) You don't have to comment to recommend.
5) You can't steal my idea (right, like that ain't goin' to happen)
6) Please, no pictures or YouTubes until after 300 comments. Now, after 100, use a little common courtesy and be responsible in the number.
7) Mojo mojo mojo mojo, mojo mojo mojo.
8) TexDem (that's me) is not bound by the guidelines. Heh
