Update by Michael Coyne
The Porsche Projects for Patriots (“P3”) program continues to move forward, and we have just made new donations of phone time on behalf of the club to troops serving our country overseas. The most recent donations went to 4 U.S. Army bases in Afghanistan where Soldiers of the 264th Engineer Route Clearance Company are stationed. We were connected to this particular group through ARPCA club member David Hergenroeder.
The Soldiers in the Clearing Company do incredibly dangerous work under very difficult conditions. Through the P3 program, we are able to offer a small token of our thanks to these men and women deserve an easy way to get in touch with loved ones back home, especially over the holiday season.
The following is a the response that we received from 1LT Jeff St. Gelais thanking the ARPCA:
Thank you so much for your kind gesture. The PIN Codes have been given out to 10 of the soldiers in my Platoon. As you can see in the attached picture, all were very excited to receive the codes. On behalf of my platoon, I want to express our appreciation for the gifts that you have sent. These codes will go a long way to ensure that soldiers are able to speak to their families during the holiday season and that in turn goes a long way in keeping morale at a high level.
Thank you again for your kindness.
1LT Jeff St. Gelais
264th EN CC, RCP 47
