    21 October: "Dear Marty,
    I had written you back in the spring to try to find out what voltage converters would be needed for some guitars my son and I hoped to send to an AnySoldier contact named Rob Finn who was serving with an air ambulance group in Kirkuk. Turned out we needn't have worried, the army supplies them with any they need.

    However, I thought I should sent you these pictures to show you the happy result of our efforts. Thanks to Fender Guitars who generously made it possible to stretch the $520 my 15 year old son and his classmate raised by setting up a stand on Main Street one Saturday in June, these soldiers now have their wished for guitars!?

    Not only did Rose Bishop of Fender help stretch that money far beyond what the kids could have afforded, she contacted Rob Finn to find out what they needed and put together a shipment that included amplifiers, t-shirts, hats, posters and lots of extras to really lift the soldiers spirits! What a great company!

    We were fortunate to be able to meet Rob Finn and his family when he came home recently and will be keeping in touch and supporting him when he goes on to Afghanistan.

    Again, thank you for all that you do.

    Sarah Havemeyer"

    Fallen Heroes Car
    24 July: "My name is Robert Basil and I am a proud veteran of the United States Army. I wanted a way to help show my remembrance of our troops who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan and also bring awareness to the general public of the great organizations that support our troops and their families. The Fallen Heroes Car project is NOT "anti-war" or "pro-war" it is a "PRO TROOPS" project.
    The Fallen Heroes Car was created to target today's younger generation. While a lot of the younger generation have opinions both for and against the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, after talking with them I realized that not many of them knew anything about the great non-profit organizations that support our troops and their families.
    What better way to bring awareness to these organizations than with a cool looking show car? I take the Fallen Heroes Car to car shows, parades, clubs and stores to help get the word out about these great organizations. I have your website listed on the rear of the vehicle and also include it in the "links" area of the website. Keep up the great work!"
