KT, in addition to serving as a Marine in the United States military, also served in the IDF Givati Infantry Brigade. He currently is serving as a reserve infantry soldier in a Miluim unit. He contacted us requesting funds to make it to Israel for training. Our goal is to help him raise $1000 for his round-trip plane tickets from his home in USA to Israel and back.
Greetings my name is —-. Ever since finishing my service and joining the Miluim [reserve] unit back in 2009, I have been forced to use the incorrect vest for my position. I am a MAGist, a machine gunner. The only vest that has been available to me is the Negev Vest (light machine gun vest). The straps for the spare barrel aren’t designed for my heavier gun and often fall off or way out of position. The ammo pockets are not big enough to hold my ammo so I am forced to put all my equipment in the backpack, which is both dangerous and unprofessional in combat systems. I would like to request the funds for a proper vest for my weapon.
