Post Looking for some support from Iraq :sniper:

Good Morning,



My name is Cpl (Corporal) Chad Moppin. I am a Marine currently serving in Iraq. The reason that I am e-mailing is to see if we can get some old equipment donated to us out here. We have a gym, well itís a tent lol. We have equipment here that has been here since 2001, and it starting to see its life. Our gym is a tent with no a/c and only two stand-up fans. It is so hot here that the equipment starts to wear rather quickly. And we donít have all the things we need to get a good workout with. Most of our equipment is broke and we have kinda rigged it to make it work. We usually have about 300 Marines in the gym a day to work out. And it is hard to do what you need to do when there is only one of everything. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.



Thank You & Semper Fi (Always Faithful)

Hello Chad, could you post some instructions on how folks could get some stuff out your way such as rings, bells, or something? Let's see if we can't drum up some support for you and your guys.

Just a thought - setup up one of those donation paypal buttons. Buying and shipping any piece of equipment would be very expensive. I think a lot of people would be willing to help pitch in some cash so you can purchase what you know you need.
