Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) January 13, 2005
Employees at TMW Systems recently showed their appreciation for our troops serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom by helping to make the Âwish listÂ a reality for some members of a West Virginia-based National Guard Unit.
Beth Fallon, a Technical Support Team Leader for TMW Systems, got the ball rolling by adopting Chief Warrant Officer Ronald Eagle - a Public Affairs Officer with the 201st Field Artillery Infantry Heavy Howitzer Brigade in Iraq - on http://www.soldiersangels.org. When she told her co-workers about her pledge to support Eagle through correspondence and care packages, they immediately pitched in and donated seven cases of snacks for his unit. Then they decided to raise the stakes and purchase as many items as they could on the unit's entertainment Âwish list.Â Thanks to the more than $800 raised from a Bake Sale, TMW employees were able to buy Eagle and his comrades an acoustic and bass guitar with amplifier, Playstation 2 games and CDs.
Eagle says he's grateful for the support of Fallon and TMW. ÂWhat is a sponsor to a soldier? A sponsor is a best friend, someone who cares and someone who takes care of you. In the middle of a battle, best friends keep you focused on the mission," he remarked.
ÂWe're extremely proud of the way our employees banded together to help make the tour of duty a little easier for one group of service men and women in Iraq,Â said Tom Weisz, president and CEO of TMW Systems. ÂThis gesture helps to demonstrate their support of our troops who are serving our country in the ongoing fight to defend freedom around the world.Â
While Eagle and his unit are scheduled to be deployed back to West Virginia in February, TMW employees plan to adopt another ÂsoldierÂ - and help to boost morale for another unit.
