San Diego Army JROTC Support Our Troops
Organized by: Lars Staack
The San Diego High School Army JROTC Battalion needs funds to help send care packages to San Diego based Soldiers deployed to Ukraine as part of the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine (JMTG-U). JROTC Cadets are collecting personal care items from friends, family, and well-wishers, but lack the funds to pay for postage and packing materials to send the packages. Although Ukraine is not as austere as other overseas areas, it lacks basic Soldier care facilities such as AAFES shopping and regular mail. The JMTG-U is the name for the training mission being conducted by U.S. Forces in support of Ukraine. The mission is scheduled to last through November 2016 and is focused on providing defensive and security training to five battalions of Ministry of Defense forces and a battalion of special operations forces.
