OT: Egg to our Troops -- MISSION COMPLETE

To All Who Contributed: Your Generosity Made a Big Impact this Week.

I got with the CSM of 5th Special Forces Group in FT Campbell, KY who lined up transportation of the Big Green Eggs, BGE and Rockwood Charcoal, sauce and spice donations, and accessories to go overseas.

Eggs are being delivered by air, charcoal is required to pack in a connex so that probably won't see it until late fall.  

I met with a SFC and SSG on Monday for them to transport all items in a 15 PAX van and guys they were fired up! We had that thing loaded down. One of the guys mentioned that two deployments ago their open pit cooking was abysmal.  I walked them through a tutorial and typed them up a tip list in order explain to them how they work. I also gave them the EGGHEAD site and my cell and email if they have any issues down the road.

CSM assured me they will both be going in September to two (2) separate locations in the Middle East. He said he would try and get some pics sent back as soon as possible.

Since both the SFC and SSG were assigned on this deployment I didn't ask them for pictures. Operational Security and all. I will post pics as they get sent back to me. 

Also, below are some pictures and thank you notes I received last week from families that received donations from the remaining funds in the account. 

Thanks again, y'all did a great thing!

    @saluki2007 I reached out to that CSM and the MSG that did the logistics to get everything shipped over about six months ago. Asked for some pics again and to see if they wanted us to do another drive to get them some more charcoal. 

    I never heard back. I’ll email Willy Stearn who heads up 5th group’s non profit and see if he knows anything. He is the one who got us hooked up with that crew.
