Package Number 2 Arrived in Afghanistan Without Explosions (so far)


Remember the other day when we told you that the shirt with our logo on it got blown up by an IED in Afghanistan?

Did I mention that Russ is an anal-retentive control freak?

Well, he’s also smart from time to time.

See, Russ divided up the stuff that was gathered at the December event into multiple boxes for shipping to different people at different locations, which means that our t-shirts went to different locations…

…which means the damnable Taliban didn’t get ’em all.  Hooray!

You’re totally welcome, Mundy!  Keep yourself safe, and get back home soon.

  1. Great Job!!!!!

    I think its great that not only are you guys helping out the the people here in Detroit but the troops overseas as well. Just think what a networking group that doesn’t suck can do could only be matched by all the other groups that do suck what a better place this would be!
