Jerky donations for wounded warriors

  1. I hope it is OK to post this here. One of the moderators on another forum I visit is a medic in the army. Please see his quote below and follow the link if you want to help.

    "Hello everyone,
    As most of you know, I'm a medic in the Army. I receive no greater joy than taking care of wounded warriors. I'm a member of the Welcome Home Soldier Program at Scott Air Force Base and we welcome home all the wounded warriors that transition through there. Frequently these soldiers are flying in just to be placed on another flight getting them closer to their destination. During these times, the wounded warriors are not fed meals. Instead they rely on donated snacks to hold them over until they can get to a place where they will stay long enough for a regular meal.

    Beef jerky has always been a hit with our military service members. It remains stable at most any temperature and has a long shelf-life. Besides that, it's just downright tasty. [​IMG]

    I ask that anyone who can, please donate any of your homemade beef, deer, or other jerky that you have to spare. Even small amounts go a long way and are greatly appreciated.,192993.0.html
