    Default Iraq Care Package Includes New Jeep

    Some military troop in Northern Iraq is going to get a care package with keys to a liberty inside. Here's the short story. I'd turn around and sell it on ebay and then buy the long arm.

    I don't know, I might do this..............



    Heck of a deal though!! That should put a smile on some soldiers face!!


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    Operation Gratitude gives Jeep to Soldier in Iraq
    By 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division PAO
    Jan 23, 2008 - 7:04:00 PM

    BAQUBA, Iraq - Operation Gratitude, an organization that sends care packages to deployed service members, surprised a Soldier with a 2008 Jeep Liberty at Forward Operating Base Warhorse, Iraq, Jan. 22.

    Spc. Michael Gallagher from Company A, 2nd Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division from Fort Lewis, Wash. was the recipient of Operation Gratitude’s special care package. The new car was the 300,000th "package" Operation Gratitude has sent to servicemembers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "When my commander ordered me to show up to this ceremony, I thought it was just another care package and they were making a big deal about it because it was the 300,000th one," said Gallagher. "When I opened up the envelope, (containing the keys to the jeep inside) it completely blew my mind."

    The care package contained other various gifts from U.S. citizens and companies that generously support the operation, including letters from local schools and four cigars from Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    The Jeep was donated by Chrysler Jeep. In a letter addressed to an "American Hero", Chrysler officials said it was an honor to do something special for both a great organization and for the Soldiers in Iraq.

    "I would like to thank (Operation Gratitude) so much for supporting the troops and giving them an opportunity to show that people actually care," Gallagher said.

    The sad part about it is that the transfer case, if stock will not last one wheeling trip on that Liberty. LOL
