MCL Members – (From Dave Ward) – Marines: I was contacted by my son. My wife and I shipped him 20 socks for himself and a few friends. He asked if we could ship 300 pairs to the junior Marines with Kilo Company 3/1. They are in Japan at Mt Fugi. Thorlo Sock Company is donating the socks. That is over $5,000.00 worth of I socks.
I just spoke with Kellis and asked if the Detachment could pay the shipping cost. I can pack 15 pairs into a large Flat Rate box and ship them for $16.90 each box. It would take 20 boxes to ship all of them at the total cost of $338.00. Kellis has no problem with this and has agreed that it is a good cause. We need all of you to weigh in on this effort. Need to ship them by the end of next week. These Marines leave MT Fugi at the end of Jan. and go to South Korea.
