Send Supplies To Calvin Wauchope

Four years ago, Calvin Wauchope graduated from Staples. His friends went to college; he joined the Marines.
He did 2 tours in Iraq.  Now he’s in Afghanistan.
Marines don’t like to ask for help.  But he’s a 21-year-old sergeant, and his unit could use some basic supplies:
  • Baby wipes (big or small)
  • White socks (calf/boot high)
  • Powder water mixers (iced tea, Gatorade, Crystal Light Lemonade)
  • Dried fruit
  • Toiletries (toothpaste, mouthwash, soap, lotion, ChapStick)
  • DVDs, magazines, books (hand-me-downs are fine)
  • Dried goods (Pepperidge Farms-type, like Goldfish; they don’t have a microwave, so no popcorn, etc.)
  • Letter writing material (including stamps)

Calvin is in charge of 7 men.  His best friend leads another 7.  There’s a total of 40 Marines on base — and all could benefit from Westport’s generosity.

You can pack donations into a $10 flat rate box (available at the post office), and send it to:
Sgt. Wauchope, Calvin
3DBN 11th MAR(TAP)
Unit 41630
FPO AP 96427-1630

But you don’t even have to do that.  Westport uber-volunteer Jane Horton — a friend of the Wauchopes — has volunteered to accept any material, and take care of shipping.  Her address is 134 Roseville Road; please email jahorton@optonline.net before dropping off.

We don’t hear a lot about Afghanistan these days.  But now that we’ve heard, let’s help 1 of Westport’s own.  And 39 other Americans, who are also our own.
