North Pole South / FOB Joint Forces Training Base Los Alamitos, CA: – On December 7, 2018 Santa’s Elves, with “Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families” had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time yesterday with the Soldiers and families of Company A, 5/19th Special Forces Group (A), California Army National Guard.

What a blessing it was to enjoy the day with them and their families! It was so great to hear some of their stories and enjoy their great sense of humor! They were great hosts to us and were very humble about what they do. We were also able to hand deliver to the Soldiers Christmas Cards that were sent to us from a Girl Scout Troop in Michigan to give to our Troops this Christmas. One 5/19th SFG Soldier said it was the first Christmas Card that he ever received as a Soldier. We had a lot fun with them, we were there to serve and honor them but instead they served and honored us… It was surprising to learn through their great sense of combat humor that a lot of them have been wounded multiple times. Both they and their families have sacrificed so much for all of us American’s… What great and humble real Heroes they and their families are. A special time we will never forget!

Because of Christmas support from people like you we were able to help them with funds for their food and beverage costs for their Unit’s Inaugural Christmas Holiday Parachute Jump for their Soldiers, families and friends. With Your Much Needed Support we look forward in supporting them next year with their Military family days and their 2019 Christmas Holiday Parachute Jump!

It’s been a long time sense we had the honor to help support the 5/19th Special Forces Group (A) and long over do! We first learned a little about them because of one of their wounded Soldiers and currant Long Beach Police Training Officer who we were very blessed to meet with his future wife back in December of 2004 our very first Christmas Drive. Through a friend we were asked to help Welcome Home SFC Chris Martin (Ret) by his future wife Deanna. She was going to greet him at 10:00pm at the John Wayne Airport in Orange County California and wanted to do something special for him.

We were able to meet her at the Airport and bring her Starbuck’s coffee and give to her a special Angels Baseball signed by the Team of the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, California, “Thank You” Tim Salmon’s Foundation and Vladimir Guerrero! Because he was wounded in 2002 by an IED in Afghanistan 4+ months into his deployment, SFC Chris Martin (Ret) was medically evacuated to first Germany than to Walter Reed U.S. Army Hospital here in the United States so he never had a “Welcome Home” with his Unit. He spent over 2 years undergoing multiple surgeries and recovering from his wounds.

But sense that time till today he and his family are doing ok. Over the years he has been a great volunteer public speaker on many occasions, encouraging all Americans to support to our Military Unit’s and their families and serves on the Board of the Long Beach Police Officers Association, Our Nation’s Heroes Foundation and other Military associations. And his Son went on to become a United States Marine! SFC Chris Martin (Ret) was the first American Soldier from California wounded in Afghanistan in 2002.

(From: https://www.navy.mil/navydata/personnel/seabees/seabee1.html)

With Your Support we can help more of our Military Units and their families like America’s Wonderful U.S. Seabee’s & Families with NMCB-3 Family Readiness Group, NMCB-4 Family Readiness Group and NMCB-5 Family Readiness Group in Port Hueneme, CA, USA!
