Sgt Major Luke Converse Intro
Hello, this is Sgt Major Luke Converse. I am the Battalion Sergeant Major for the 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, currently deployed to Afghanistan. The Marines are doing some tremendous work over here. They are living rough, basically out of their LAV’s for the most part and are taking the fight to the Taliban. I have been in the Corps for 24 years and still marvel at Marines in combat. They are definitely living up to their legacy.
The Marines are in need of a lot of basic toiletry items. We are at the end of the line logistically, so they start to run out of things like soap, razors, socks are worth their weight in gold- simple cotton tube socks- (over the calf type) The Marines are on the go, it is incredibly hot and they packed lots of socks, but we have trouble with water to wash them, and then we seldom slow down… Baby wipes are also a hot commodity- we never have enough of them. Because we are geographically remote… we don’t have access to a PX where they can purchase these items on their own.
I greatly appreciate anything you can do for the Marines. I have 400 from my bn and another 150 in attachments- anything you can send to me will be given to the Marines via their company 1st sgts…
