We need one BIG Husky fan to help out a U.S. sailor in AfghanistanSeptember 17, 2012 @ 2:57 pm
Hey Husky fans! Check out this email from a member of the R&D Nation currently stationed in Afghanistan:

Dear Ron & Don
My name is Zach, I am a Master-At-Arms Petty Officer 3rd class in the United States Navy. I am stationed in Everett WA as a reservist. But right now I am deployed to Afghanistan.
My problem I am having is that there are three things I love about home other than my family: UW Football, the Seattle Seahawks, and you guys. The problem that I am running into is like many Husky fans right now I dont ever get to watch the games and trying to listen to them on our internet over hear is just not going to happen. Same reason I dont get to listen to you guys.
I was hoping that because you guys are the number-1 listened to station in the PNW and you know so many people you may know someone who could send me the games on dvd or record the radio version something. I know its a lot to ask but I also know how much you guys love to help out the troops and there are a few of us that are really missing that part of home.
Thanks for everything you guys do I know you are asked to do a lot by so many people.
We are looking for a serious purple & gold fan who can help Zach and his buddies out. After checking with the Huskies, as long as you don't sell or mass-produce these DVDs, it is totally cool to tape copies and share them with servicemembers overseas.
SO--If you are willing to volunteer to record and burn DVDs of Husky football games and mail them to Zach in Afghanistan, please email us at ronanddon(at)973kiro.com. It's a small gesture that would go a long way to helping men and women stationed far away in 'the sandbox' feel a little closer to home.
Thank you in advance from the whole Ron & Don crew!
