NSDAR Project Patriot Update and Request from the National Chairman.


I was contacted by Fort Polk, Louisiana's 4th Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division Family Services Coordinator recently, and we have a great new short-term project to help our servicemembers!

The Brigade is currently in Afghanistan, and she has requested help in furnishing bedding for the single Soldiers of the Brigade so that upon return their first few nights back in the barracks they have new sheets, etc.!

Attached is a listing of the different units in the Brigade and their mailing address. To ensure equal coverage between the seven units, I assigned each NSDAR division (one has two divisions based on size) a unit. Please forward this to your States!! My contact at Fort Polk will let me know when they have enough bedding for the different units.

Chapters can include pillows, twin size sheets, and any other "welcome home" items they care to send. Be advised some Soldiers may not come home until December, so do not send any perishable goods. Remember that only about 10% of these Soldiers are women and I have annotated the units that have them on the attachment.

Please let me know if you have any issues or questions! If this goes well, we will see if other units need the same support.

Honoring our Heritage - Focusing on the Future - Celebrating America!
