Topic: Thanks to Ron Kyle and Coffee for our Troops (15 msgs / 263 lines)
1) From: George Holt
I'd like to thanks Ron Kyle for the great work he did on my RK
Drum/Drive motor. I just finished a four pound batch of Sulalwesi
Toroja. This makes over 100 pounds of coffee roasted in my RK Drum.
I'm vac sealing this and sending it along with a grinder to one of the
CG members in Iraq. If any one is interested in mailing to him or his
company here's the address.
My personal address:    
   Lcpl Brian Kampling
   2/24 E Co 2nd Platoon
   Unit 43500
   FPO, AP 96426
   United States
Address to reach the rest of the marines in my company:
   Echo Company
   2/24 E Co 2nd Platoon
   Unit 43500
   FPO, AP 96426
   United States

From somebody who has been there, that is a great gesture, George.
That platoon is lucky to have a 'sponsor' like you. FYI, ALL US troops
have access to 110V, using power generators and inverters are the most
common means. A used blade grinder & 2 lbs of Vac Sealed roast, even
if it was 6 months old (30 - 60 days is the norm) it would be much
better than mess hall coffee, foal turds or the rest of the
alternatives. All drinking water is bottled in Kuwait or Saudi Arabia,
some tastes better than others, but this time of year, the coffee
drinkers are out in force... A great Christmas present would be a
blade grinder, 2 lbs of homeroast & a Sunday Newspaper, with the Ads
removed (leave the comics section in, though). It's a tough
environment, a tough mission, for most. Before you send anything,
though, wrap it up & throw it across the room, if it's intact, you did
good!, If not, buy & try again. ( I've received a few packages with a
nice slime coating of shampoo 'preservitave' coating on all the
contents!)

George sending the troops a nice package of Home roasted coffee is
wonderful, I'm sure the coffee will be enjoyed, I'm glad you are happy with
drum and motor set up. I noticed the address are in the US. How do they get
to Iraq thru the address you posted?

Ron, the FPO is 'Foreign Post Office", AP 'American Postal'
When you are stationed overseas, the 'shipping' costs are to the
Zip-code, the military post office takes over & sends it out on
anything going there air, ship, whatevers cheapest, or lightest, they
try to fill up the weight of the carrier...or so I'm told ;-)

Isn't FPO "Fleet Post Office?"  Or did they change things on me?

George-
Thanks for posting this.  I was thinking about doing the same.  So, if
I understand correctly, these guys have a grinder already, so we can
just send them beans?  That way, I can send my spare blade grinder and
coffee to another unit, also.

7) From: R.N.Kyle
Thanks Gary, I thought that was how it got there, but was not sure.

Ron,

I sent a Whirlly blade with my shipment today. 
My wife said if you send it to Echo Company make it in care of Lcpl
Brian Kampling. She said she saw a segment on the news that said it
had to be addressed to a person. Not just the company.

Your wife is right - due to security concerns they won't take things address
to 'any soldier' or even to a specific unit.
The web sitehttp://www.anysoldier.comhas the details on this.  You *do*
have to address everything to specific soldiers, but there are a *lot* of
them that are willing to act as 'conduits' for getting things to the folks
whose names we don't know.
Enjoy!
Steve :->

11) From: Gary Townsend
Rick I think your right, I, bieng a land lubber, have heard it both
ways. But since the troops in this particular case are Marines, then
you may call it that. I suffer from CRS, you know. Can't Remember
Sh*t. ;-) Either way, it'll get there!

How old are WE Rick?    I remembered them as APO and FPO as well,
where A was Army and F was Fleet for Marines and Navy.   Life changes,
why can't I?  :O)

What kind and shaft size do you need?  My factory uses the plastic
2-piece style (female with internal teeth and male with external
teeth, no rubber "spider").  Shaft sizes are 3/8" to 3/4".

Along these same lines our woodturning club has been turning freedom
pens for the troops.  We sent 360 custom pens on Thur. to Iraq.

I think it's the 3/8 Ron could verify that.
