I am a professor at Boston University, lecture in thier graduate program at Cherry Point and Camp LeJeune. A number of my students eventually get deployed during the semester. I always allow them to continue complete thei semester so they do not loose their tuition or have to re-take the class.

I have sent them all a box of items (all between 25-30 pounds). They are al greatful but the one thing they need more than foot powder or other toiletries is our support.

They all say that the only news they see is all negative.. They are wondering if they are going to become the new "Vietnam Veterans".

J.D. suggested that I use this forum to see if any of you would be willing to drop them an email and let them know that we are behind them 1000%

They are all at Al Assad Air Base and their emails are:
