Operation Soldier Doing Good Works
Our buddy John Bush over at Operation Soldier
has been busy!Operation Soldier is pleased to announce that their Brotherhood of The Badge Project has just sent 20 tons of used police gear to American Forces in Iraq.
Partnering with Spirit of America, who is handling the logistics of the transportation of the equipment, the safety gear is a culmination of contributions made from Police Departments throughout the United States.
The gear includes roughly 1800 bullet proof vests, and hundreds of riot batons, helmets and face shields.
To date, Operation Soldier and their Brotherhood of the Badge Project have sent close to 10,000 bullet proof vests to Iraq. Once American forces take possession of the gear, it will be distributed to Iraqi Police Officers as they complete their training from American and Allied Forces.
John's also put together a terrific video
explaining the important work that Operation Soldier does and asking for your contributions. This is a worthy cause that deserves our support.
