thank you for including me in your book. We ran Operation Air Conditioner from 2003 until 2010 and we sent $8.6 million worth of air conditioners, combat boots and just about anything but the kitchen sink. Even sent washer and dryer to Marines in Ramadi. We did it as a group the American people and our family.
