Iraqi Children Benefit From Assistance From Marines
The efforts of the coalition in the War on Terror, and Operation Iraqi Freedom has been rewarding for the individual soldiers, but nothing is as rewarding as the different evolutions that allow soldiers to be able to deal with children.
There are a number of grass roots organizations that are being successful in helping different Marine Units that are stationed in Iraq. These groups are able to supply food, toys and other materials that are collected from citizens in the United States to distribute and share with the children and citizens of Iraq.
The local population in Iraq are very glad to be able to get the different materials, and the children especially are overjoyed. The Coalition soldiers find being able to deal with the children also very rewarding, and they cant help but be enthusiastic by being able to give out food, toys and other consumables to children, and select individuals.
Many of the children run to the soldiers when they see them and they chatter excitedly with joy, laughing and running around because of their excitement. The soldiers for their part are happy to be able to do something positive, that directly benefits the children.
Many of the different villages set up different locations so that when supplies are available there is a set place already established for the distribution of the food that has been gathered back home in the USA.
