Want to help the Ukrainians continue to repel the Russian invaders but don’t know how? Here’s your chance!

I have an Army buddy in Florida I served with in Iraq who can get supplies to the Ukrainians through a contact that makes regular trips to the Polish, Ukraine border. 

Medical equipment, military surplus, clothing items, anything you have left from your own military service, or supplies you purchase and wish to donate to the freedom of Ukraine.

Absolutely no WEAPONS, AMMO, or MONEY can be shipped.

You could purchase items from Amazon or any other retailer and have them shipped, or just ship your own donations.

Below is a more detailed message from him as well as his shipping address in Florida. If you have questions you can contact me directly at  john@johnetterleebooks.com

“I’m reaching out to everyone  who would be interested in assisting me in collecting items for Ukraine. I have a contact here in Florida who has been making regular trips to the Polish, Ukraine border.

Looking for any old military items, uniforms, boots, rucks, molle gear, helmets, lights mags, basically anything you have sitting around collecting dust from the glory days.

If you wanna help but don’t know how to, now is your chance. Don’t have any old military stuff but still want to help out, Socks any color, shirts (green or back) hygiene stuff, any medical supplies NO MONEY! If you’re interested in helping ship the stuff to me and I’ll get it to the group here in Florida. Thanks”
