Special thanks to all of the recent "heavy hitters" contributions to TSAC, we were able to put another eight boxes into the Postal system headed to our Chinook unit in Afghanistan!
In the boxes seen above are items from the 5th graders of Elk Creek Elementary "Mountain Eagles Destination Imagination team" and "On The Move Fitness" of Aspen Park.

It seemed like the last shipment took a bit longer to get to our Chinook Troop but it took only the usual 10 days to get there.
That is about a match for the current shipments - but it might start to get a few days longer as the Christmas Holiday draws near.
Now that we have a great line of communication, we will start shipping boxes as quickly as once a week or sooner.

Here are photos of some of our troops enjoying the "flavors" of our recent (and first for them from TSAC) shipment.
TSAC will keep trying to keep up the "Home Run" streak thanks to the support of our generous mountain community!

Here is the email from our contact there:

We have received all 8 of your packages and they were an absolute hit! The guys and gal loved them, and I've attached several pictures for you to use. All of the items seemed to go over well, I think we are set on candy until the end of the deployment! The popcorn, coffee, granola bars, and tuna packets, as well as the jerky and sticks were very popular. Already one bag of coffee down, it is phenomenal. Little things like that make this deployment a little easier and we can't thank you enough for your support.


Please continue to use the colorful TSAC collection box on the west side of King Soopers in Aspen Park.
It is right next to the cage for Blue Rhino propane bottles.
We check it every time we pass near that location.

If you have a larger load or "special" items, please feel free to contact us by PM on with your phone number and we will call back and arrange to meet you for a handoff.

Thanks again to all the generous folks who have included cash or checks with their donations!
Those are best securely sent to: TSAC, P.O. Box 1238, Bailey, CO 80421-1238

Please have a happy and warm Thanksgiving and please offer a prayer for the safety of all our troops away from home!

Pictures really drive it home.
Thank you, TSAC and the community that supports this fine effort.

Deepest gratitude for our military, in harms way for our sake.
