A special appeal to the JOTW network for powdered non-dairy coffee creamer
Through my colleague Gregg Shields in Dallas comes this appeal for assistance that I think we all can support. Tom Clementson is a senior advisor for public affairs at the ISAF Joint Command in Afghanistan. Like any red-blooded American, he likes his coffee. But due to the remote location, Tom and his colleagues find it hard to find powdered creamer for their coffee. He reports:
It's less of a necessity than a true comfort item but any flavored creamers of the powdered variety. We have the basics here but unlike most of the larger U.S. bases, our NATO base is very Euro. Again, thanks so much. Address is below.
KAIA Attn: IJC PAO
APO AE 09320
So, I am asking my fellow “nedworkers” to grab some non-dairy powdered coffee creamer and package it for shipment to Tom at the above address.
If you don't have any coffee creamer handy, because you are like me and take your Navy coffee straight, then Tom says:
“The team will be thrilled and even if people just want to drop a postcard to The IJC Public Affairs Team. We'd be very happy with that.”
APO addresses are part of the U.S. postal system, so you don't need to worry about customs paperwork.
Please pass this on to your fellow communication professionals.
