650 soldiers from the 1st Calvary Division are coming back from war to nothing but a mattress in 20 days.
650 single soldiers from the 1st Calvary Division from Fort Hood Texas are coming back from a year long tour in Afghanistan in the next 3 weeks. These single soldiers will be living in the barracks with little or no family support and many without necessary necessities like linens and toiletries and no transportation to even acquire these items. We need your help to ensure each soldier (male and female) come back to a true heroes homecoming by providing each soldier with a new set of twin sheets, pillows, pillow cases, blankets and toiletries. For every $30.00 donated we can supply one soldier with the adequate items for a proper homecoming.
We just received an email from the 1st Calvary S4 that 80 of the 650 soldiers will be here next week already and we are still short 30 sets of linen and toiletries for these soldiers.
Our goal is raise $5,000 to help facilitate this request. Please remember you can donate online at www.operationonceinalifetime.com and click on donate or if you would like to drop off these needed items you may do so by taking these items to the Support Your Troops Resale Center located at 2540 Ave K #200 Plano, Texas 75074.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!! Operation Once in a Lifetime [501(c)3] is in need of volunteers to help deliver these needed items to Fort Hood Texas. If you would like to volunteer please contact Sgt. Patrick Sowers at Patrick@operationonceinalifetime.com.
* Twin sheets can be any color but twin sheets regulars.

Thank you to all that donated past and present and thank you to all support our troops.
