Alpha Company Sponsors Unit in Ramadi
In the months we've been here, we've flown to all corners of Iraq. Places with varying degrees of available services, from installations with a PX, coffee shop and even traffic court, to remote locations where a radio call is required several minutes prior to landing so the landing zone can be secured and marked. The latter are lucky to have a bathroom.
With these varying levels of service, Alpha company has adopted a unit in Ramadi, where there is neither a PX nor a gym. Noting these deficiencies, we have started to share with them our wealth of baked-goods-filled care packages. The unit we've adopted recalls the hard-nosed soldiers of Stephen Ambrose's "Band of Brothers." It's a group accustomed to hardship. We have flown there a few times and as our relationship developed, we realized they were perfect candidates to share in our good fortune.
With the help of our families, we've been able to afford 1/506 the opportunity to enjoy a taste of home. The 1/506 in turn has ensured future deliveries by providing a "Thank You" poster, signed by members of the unit, along with a photo of the goodies set out for consumption.
Whether it is a lift or a care package, we are glad to help!
