For our inaugural RSVLTS Deployment Box we are asking the community to team up and send 21 shirts to an entire Platoon based in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
A few months ago we received the following email:
"To whom it may concern. My name is n...... r......., I've bought your shirts before and they're baller! I'm deployed right now too kandahar Afghanistan I'm and 11b and a 50cal gunner on the top of the maxxpro! I'm asking you today if you would be able to possibly send me a care package or something? I would love to rep your clothing and stickers are awesome! Thank you for your time!"
We recently followed up asking if we could send shirts to his entire unit and received this reply:
"Stephen, my man! A lot has happened since we last talked, we hit 2 IEDS... I'll attach pictures. But, when you say send a care package to my unit, do you mean my company or my platoon? My company has roughly 70 personel. My platoon has 21 people. Or my battalion which has 600+. Please let me know how I can help!"
First of all, the photos he shared are nuts! I am not exactly sure if the photos are ok to shared so not going to do it but they show the front end of a very large transport vehicle, probably a Humvee, blown to shreds. It's astonishing how brave these people are and I think the least we can do is team up to get the entire Platoon of 21 people some gear to wear on their downtime... if that is even a thing in Kandahar Afghanistan.
So today we're asking you to team up and buy a shirt. Hopefully everyone is generous and we'll be able to fill the deployment box with a random assortment of our latest and greatest shirts.
If you or a loved one is stationed overseas and may like a RSVLTS Deployment Box in the future fill out the information below so we can get in touch.
Taking a cue from an amazing post on RSVLTS Insiders, we are going to launch a program called "RSVLTS Deployment Boxes" that allows our incredible community to give RSVLTS gear to brave service members who are protecting our asses overseas. :
• Each month we select a unit, team or brigade overseas and set a specific shirt goal for their Deployment Box.
• The RSVLTS community will try to fill the Deployment Box, buying shirts to be added at a extremely steep discount. Just order as you would and we will take care the rest.
• Once we hit the specific goal of items and the box is full, we pack it up and ship it out.
