Taking a cue from Chief Wiggles and his toys-for-Iraqi children initiative, SGT Hook has started up a new program in Afghanistan that he has dubbed "Operaton Shoe Fly". He is soliciting donations of new or used children's shoes, as a staggering number of Afghani children do not own a pair of shoes, something that most Americans (and Western Europeans) take for granted every day.
If you have shoes to donate, ship them here:
Operation Shoe Fly
B Co, 214th Aviation Regiment
APO AE 09354-9998
