On October 27th 2009, after roadside bombs killed eight soldiers, White House Spokesman, Robert Gibbs issued the following statement of condolence, “As always, our prayers go out to those who have lost a loved one and for those who sacrificed so much to serve our country.”
In the wee hours of Thursday, October 29th 2009, eighteen U.S. Personnel arrived home in flag draped caskets as their families and our President looked on in grief. October 2009 was reported to be the deadliest month of the war since it began eight years ago. Further news reports stated that a total of two hundred, seventy-seven Americans have died this year alone, a forty-three percent increase over last year.
As of September 15th 2009, a total of 176,850 troops have been deployed to the Middle East. Current news reports indicate the possibility of another 40,000 being sent in the near future. These sobering facts, unpleasant as they may be, must call us to action in the support of our service men and women. They need to be reminded of the appreciation that we as a nation have for their sacrifice, dedication, and service.
We at NutraPlanet are taking action by launching Operation Combat Care in efforts to bolster the health and morale of our deployed service men and women by giving them the gift of health…but we need your help! Working in partnership with Operation Gratitude, our goal is to send 25,000 care packages overseas this holiday season.
These packages contain the following:
* Blender Bottle (BPA Free)
* Wool Beanie Headware
* Protein Meal Replacement Packets
* Durable 100% Cotton T-Shirt
* Immune Boosting Vita Drink Mix Packets
* And More…
* Over $40 Value
We will be offering these care package kits for the cost of $25. NutraPlanet will also cover the associated freight costs to transport these care packages to Operation Gratitude. Once received by Operation Gratitude, the packaged items will be distributed to our deployed troops overseas.
As a special thank you gift from us, NutraPlanet is also offering free shipping on YOUR order within the continental US, when you purchase one or more care packages. Each care package purchase is tax deductable and helps support our men and women overseas.
As the holidays approach, and we begin making plans to celebrate with our families and loved ones, let us remember those in uniform who left theirs behind to face the unimaginable while we go about our lives.
Give them the gift of health this season in the form of care packages specifically designed with products to meet their demanding physical and emotional needs. By building up and fortifying their bodies from the inside, perhaps we can increase their performance and abilities, and ultimately their chances to return to their loved ones.
