Day Before Independence Day Drop

Press Release

What: GI Pajama Party
Location: Owasso, Wal-Mart
When: Thursday July 3, 2008
Time: 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

On Thursday July 3 from 3-8 pm the Youth from Bethel Baptist Church will hold a G.I. Pajama party drop point at the Owasso Wal-Mart.

When soldiers are wounded in Iraq , they are taken to the hospital where their clothing is removed and they are given a hospital gown. (The kind that is slit up the backside) The trek to the hospital does not include stopping and getting an extra set of clothing ~ so our Heroes are left standing around with their bare bottoms playing peek-a-boo with every step they take.

On this day before Independence Day
Give a hearty cheer, for those who shed their blood for you.When the red, white and blue Streaks the sky,Remember those who for their flag On faraway soil did bleed and die...
&nbs p; (… Gary Jacobson)

Purchase a t-shirt and pajama pants or shorts and drop them by Wal-Mart on Thursday July 3 and sign the large card we’ll send to the Hospital in Baghdad.

We will package a set in a 1 gallon Ziploc bag with a personalized card wishing them rapid recovery and letting them know since they've got our backs its time for us to step up and cover theirs!
