Back on March 7, 2007, CW3 Billy Shults contacted us (Electric Bass Circuit) via our message board. CW3 Shults requested a fishing care package for our troops because they could not purchase fishing tackle in Iraq, and they wanted to have a tournament. We sent our troops a fishing care package, and they did have a tourney on May 6. We have not received photos from their tourney yet, but the troops did honor us with a United States Flag which was flown over the Headquarters of the Multi-National Corps-Iraq in our honor during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Included with the flag, was a Certificate and Request Form.

We thank all of our military, stateside and abroad.

Ditto...I have a few rod/reel combos (1 ultra lite w/ Diawa spinning reel, Shimano Bantum baitcaster and rod, and a Zebco 33 Classic with a Lew's Stick rod) that I will gladly send to the troops, as well as some lures, soft plastics, hooks, sinkers, bobbers, etc.... Send me a PM and I will get this in the works.

I emailed CW3 Shults last night and informed him that a couple OGF members have tackle they would like to donate. I received an email from CW3 Shults this morning. A quote from the email follows:

I cant begin to let everyone know how happy this has made everyone. We have been incredibly busy. We are really putting in the extra hours, all for the good. I have been able to get the gear to 2 outlets that give everyone a chance to fish! When the temp hits 122 they still wet hooks!
Anyone who would like to send tackle to our troops can send it to:

CW3 Billy Shults
A 1-14FA
CAMP LIBERTY, IRAQ
APO AE 09344

CW3 Shults will distribute the tackle, giving as many troops as possible a chance to wet a line.
