IMPORTANT! Wounded Warriors Fundraiser

Friends and fellow Americans, If you cannot attend please forward to all your contacts. We have over 300 wounded at Camp Lejeune

When asked "What do you want for Christmas?", many of the wounded Marines at the Wounded Warrior Barracks replied that they wanted to spend Christmas with their families. Many of these brave men cannot afford the cost of travel, therefore, the MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave program was established.

This project buys airline tickets, hotel rooms, rental cars, bus tickets, whatever is necessary to get these wounded Marines together with their families and grant them their Christmas wish!

Please join us Thursday, December 1 from 6-8 PM for a fundraiser at New Bern Country Club where our guests of honor will be some of the Marines from the Wounded Warrior Barracks at Camp Lejeune. There will be heavy hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. Bring a check payable to "MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave".

Our donation goal is $50 per person but we are happy to accept any amount you can bring. Even if you can only stay a short while, please come by and meet these brave Marines and let them know we appreciate the sacrifice they have made!

If you have other obligations but are still willing to help with any amount of donation, please mail a check, payable to

MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave. Send to Steve Tyson, 1914 Trent Blvd, New Bern, NC 28560

If you know someone that would be interested in attending and/or donating to this worthy cause, please pass this email on. This is a grass roots effort, there are well over 100 Marines we are trying to help, and we will need a wide circulation to raise the money required for tickets.

If you can attend Please RSVP by email as soon as you can to stevetyson55@gmail.com or call 252-638-6868 and ask for Ruthie.

Thank you for your support,
Steve Tyson, Craven County Commissioner
LtGen Harry Blot, USMC (Ret.)
MajGen Tom Braaten, USMC (Ret.)
