OPERATION SHOEBOX - A tale of a phone call:

September 29, 2014:

 

Note:  The following was received be us from Rosalie Russell, who, as you all may know has been running Operation Shoebox for years.  From time to time we hear from our thankful troops, and we are pleased to relate her version of the following conversation to all.  Please keep supporting this valuable program.  See more info at: http://alpost206.org/shoebox.html

 

-----------------------------

 

Sunday, 9/28/14 at approximately 1:15 Frank Purdy came up to get me while I was working a district meeting for the ladies auxiliary to tell me I have a young man on the phone that was calling me from Korea.

 

I took the call immediately.  It was from Sgt. Aaron Zills.  He wanted to personally thank me and the American Legion for all the boxes they have been receiving.  He proceeded to tell me that the boxes are very much appreciated by all the troops.  He says it really helps boost the morale for them to receive such packages from home.  He has been there for 4 years and will return home in December when he retires.  The unit will remain there and he will give me a forwarding name upon his departure.  They are stationed 15 south of the dmz.

 

That was such a special call for me to have received.  I was told it was 2:15 in the morning when he was making the call.  It was around 1:15 this afternoon when he called me.  This call was such a great reward for the job i am doing (Operation Shoebox).

 

I told him if there was anything they would like us to send to please let us know, and I would try to get it for them.

 

I was blessed today to have talked to one of our recipients who is defending us and for him to call and thank the American Legion and myself.

 

 
THANK YOU ROSALIE!

Warning: VA ID Cards Are Easily Scanned

Week of November 25, 2013

Anyone with a smartphone and a bar code app can scan any Department of Veterans Affairs identification card issued since 2004 and the cardholder's Social Security number immediately pops up on the screen. The Department of Veterans Affairs published warnings about the veterans information cards (VICs) on their website in 2011 and again in July, 2013. The alert states, "Some barcode readers, including those available as applications on cell phones, can scan the bar code on the front of the card, and reveal the veteran's social security number." VA has begun to work on a new type of card, which will not contain a Social Security number. Meanwhile, veterans should treat their current ID cards as just a careful as they do their Social Security card to prevent identity theft.
