Taking Care Of Our Blackhorse Sons And Daughters
Eric Newton, Public Affairs Officer of the 11th Armored
Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam And Cambodia (11th

are participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
Eric is asking for your support in helping to prepare Care
Packages for our Blackhorse sons and daughter. K Troop, hosted by Bob
Hersey is proud to support Eric in this effort and encourage you to send
your check today.

Eric posted this appeal on the message board at the 11th ACVVC on April 4, 2003.
This is what Eric said.
Iraqi Freedom & Enduring Freedom
Our sons and daughters are in the middle of a combat zone much the same as we Vietnam
veterans were in decades ago. Personal items are little more than what they could manage
to carry with them. No fast food joint or convenience store to make a quick trip to for
lifes little enjoyments. If a mobile canteen does happen to arrive, the lines are
hours long and the selection is very slim and limited. Even if they prepared for the trip
with a few items they are long gone by now.
It is up to us, those who have shared their sacrifice to help them out.
We are determined to help these kids, (young men and women) and show them our support by
sending care packages that will get to names we know. Enough that can be shared with their
buddies. The names of our members kids are listed on our website with one veteran having
both a son and daughter in Iraq.
We need to get the donations here immediately so we can bulk purchase the items they need
to make their life a bit more bearable.
Please make checks payable to 11th ACVVC. Eric Newton will chair this committee.
