Morale, Welfare, and Relaxation Units (MWRs)
Brookhaven's AaP has shipped 29 boxes of supplies and requested items totaling 890lbs.
MWR exists because the U.S. Military is committed to the well-being of the
community of people who serve and stand ready to defend the nation.
Project Towel Drop for Walking Wounded. Soldiers that are wounded receive a shower during Triage. They had to dry off with their dirty uniforms since they had no towels. A problem? Not for the BVA! Everyone kicked in and 720 towels plus detergent were in Iraq in a little over two weeks.
Truck Stop IRAQ - This is a place where the truck convoys that roll out of Baghdad International Airport into the city stop to refuel and get some snacks or rest. It is an MWR and operates much like a typical truck stop. It is where we send all the extra supplies that our normal platoon or employees relations can not use.
We filled a request that National AaP received from Jeffrey Krohn's platoon for hydration packs.
In addition to our Recon group we received orders to help support a MWR unit (Morale Welfare and Relaxation), known as a Truck Stop. It is a place where convoys of trucks stop on their way to refuel and rest. These places are similar to a USO or Red Cross Canteen where we used to go during our service are now called MWRs and run by Chaplains in the Army and are very sparse and do not have a lot of resources. Please read the thank you message from the MWR unit. 3/2/09
