U.S. Marines headed back to Helmand Province, Afghanistan
The Marines will be replacing an Army unit, Task Force Forge, that has been working in Helmand Province. The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas have sent many care packages to Task Force Forge.
Part of the Task Force Southwest will be stationed at what was once called Camp Leatherneck. The General leading the mission says, "We’re not in any way viewing this as a noncombat mission or anything to take lightly.” These U.S. Marines will be deployed in a volatile area and "could face combat".
There are currently about 8,400 American Troops in Afghanistan, and many other support personnel.
As new troops constantly rotate in and out, the care packages of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are expected to reach several thousand U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan in 2017. We also ship care packages to Iraq and other remote locations, where basic amenities are sparse.
If you would like a simple way to support our men and women serving in remote locations with our Armed Forces overseas, we would welcome your financial donation to help our all-volunteer nonprofit continue sending care packages.
