Join Me in Sending Some Marines Emails

US Marine Colonel Simcock, the commander of USMC Regimental Combat Team 6 in Iraq, is asking for 6,000 positive emails to his Marines.

That's one email for each Marine in his RCT command. COL Simcock is concerned about the effect of the negative barrage that those Marines are getting through the electronic media. I've attached an excerpt from an interview with him. So far, they've only mustered 2,000 emails. That's a crying shame compared to the amount of crap I get daily in email.

Here's the address:

"If you're reading this email, then you can probably click on the
address, type a few words, and then hit "send" to be all done.
It doesn't have to be the Gettysburg Address.

Something as simple as "Hello, Marine. We thank you for what you're doing.
You are in a noble task. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Best wishes &get home soon" is more than sufficient.

I did. I like commmending those who deserve it.
Plus, I was born in the Corps--that blood runs deep.
Makes us strong in the face of adversity.
Thanks for posting this!

email on the way. I'm sending a link to this post to everyone I know as well.
hope you've been doing ok, Chrissie, I've been out of touch for a while, decided to do some major remodeling at Stately Sad Old Goth Manor and it's been dragging on for two weeks. Should be wrapped up this weekend, if I survive. I guess if our wonderful Marines can do what they do, I can manage this!
be well, be back soon.
