The brave men and women serving our country overseas don’t ask for a lot, while giving up much –including time with their families and other loved ones. They’re doing an important, high risk job – helping to keep our country free – and they need to know how much we appreciate what they’re doing while they’re away.
That’s why the KIX team is asking for your support for the Soldiers of Fort Knox’s 3d Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, (The “Duke Brigade”) who are deploying to Afghanistan in the very near future. In fact, some are there already. “Adopt-a-Fort Knox Platoon” is an initiative that relies on the local community to help provide a better deployment quality of life for these Soldiers, by linking them with the caring community around Fort Knox, folks who are interested in supporting our heroes with periodic cards, letters, and care packages during the course of their deployment and beyond.
The “Adopt-a-Fort Knox Platoon” effort is looking for businesses, schools, and other organizations and individuals willing to help make this endeavor a success. The “Duke Brigade” is preparing for their next deployment now, and if you or your organization wants to participate, there are still units that could use your support. Please contact John Campbell at the Fort Knox Public Affairs Office, (502) 624-0150, email@example.com to find out more. He’ll make sure you get the information you’ll need to proceed.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
