Free Gear for Those Fighting the Good Fight *Update*

by May 18, 2010 05/18/10

*Update* Thanks everyone for sending in your comments and emails. Unfortunately, all of the gear has been spoken for. Thanks for your support and your service. Stay safe!

One of our Plank Owners, Eric Chevalier, recently contacted us about using ITS as an outlet to donate some gear that he no longer needed. Eric personally sent over two huge boxes to us so we could distribute it as we saw fit to those in harms way.

While we were able to get a few things out to our brothers down range, there’s still a log of gear that needs a good home. So, piggybacking on Eric’s awesome gesture, we’ve thrown in some gear and ITS merchandise into the pile of awesome.

ITS is going to cover the shipping to send this stuff out to whomever we feel has the most need for the gear, regardless of where they’re at in the world. We want this to get to those who need it. While we’d prefer it went to deployed Military or Contractors, our Law Enforcement brothers at home are no less deserving.

How to enter

If you’d like to throw your name in to claim a piece of gear, just leave a comment with a brief description of what you do, what you feel you could use and an email address so we can contact you to send out your gear. All the gear is numbered, so please reference numbers when throwing in your name for something.

Please pass this information out to all those you know in need and either have them come here to leave a comment, or leave one yourself with who you’re nominating to receive the gear. Again this is all free of charge and open to anyone in need, please be honest and don’t abuse this.

We’ll try to spread the gear out to everyone, so truly only throw your name up for what you know you can use (you can request more than one item). Also, if you have things you’d be willing to ship out to those in need, add that into the comments and people can roger up for what you’re offering as well.

Let’s all work together and show our appreciation for those fighting the good fight!

Hi guys! Stumbled in your website tonight and thought, what awesome people with an awesome idea. THANK YOU for putting all this together

I am currently with my MP unit at Fort Bliss, TX and Fort McGregor, NM doing training before we leave for Afghanistan on march 17 th.

our hunt is out of South Dakota so our funding for equipment is low. Most if not all the listed items could be used in the unit ( 124 people)

Our mission will be a security based mission when we arrive in Afghanistan. Any help from you guys in providing some unneeded equipment would be

more than greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much guys! Keep fighting the good fight

Hi. My unit recently deployed to Afghanistan. We are engineers. We are responsible for construction and deconstruction. In some case we'll be in places which are sparsely populated by any military because those places are set for the deconstruction phase. Myself and the other members of my unit would greatly appreciate any gear you could see fit in sending our way to make our job and defending ourselves easier.

I have a pelican box roller, but those are not always the most convenient for getting in vehicles or inside the aircraft in hurries. Thanks for the opportunity to score a great product.

I am a retired police officer. My son is preparing for a deployment in Afganistan. He has completed one deployment to Iraq about a year ago. His MOS is Forward Observor FOX 13. He just bought load carrying vest and Camel Back MOLLE pack from US Cav since the issued equip is crap. He is specifically looking for pouches to carry his communications gear, navgation gear etc on his bag and vest. Any pouches would be greatly apprecated. The load vest has mag pouches already but any of the others would be great. Thanks so much.

Mike

I'm a PSG in the mighty All American Airborne Div; my unit just redeployed fr a humanitarian mission and are prepping to deploy again to combat. I'm not worried about me, but would love to get any of that gear fory troopers in my platoon. Reset isn't what it used to be for equipment.

Tom Trask

As much as I personally would like every bit of that gear, if I won, I'd give it to someone actually watching my 6 out there, preferably military. We are a small defensive pistol instructors group, and we have everything we really need - just lucky I guess.

I am a Deputy, with the large amount of Officer related shootings in the county, I am trying to put together a medical bag. If someone needs it more, I completely understand. We have to buy our own gear due to cutbacks. Some swag would be great too! My gear is black but I will take anything I can get. Thank you

I'm a PFC currently stationed at Bragg and awaiting an upcoming deployment. I would graciously accept anything that I could use on my first deployment. The items that I could use most are:

1 - Kifaru Express Pack w/ Waistbelt;

4 - Eagle Industries Courier Bag;

8/9 - Paraclete MOLLE Double (Single) M4 Pouch;

12/13 - Paraclete MOLLE GP Pouch.

I've been looking for a decent bug-out bag to throw essentials in but haven't found the dough to shell out for a Mystery Ranch Assault pack. The courier bag would double as a range and day bag. Double mag pouches have so many uses and the GP pouch would be used to store notebooks and other small go-to items (headlamp, gerber, batteries, etc.)

Thank you to everyone who donated gear and for giving Joes the chance to get some decent gear. I'd gladly wear any of the patches on my gear to support you guys.

almost forgot, Eric, hey brother, you are a very good man. plain, simple and to the point. That was an awesome thing you did and i know it was not done out of recognition or fame, but just a selfless good deed. awesome bro, just awesome.

Raymond

wow, i've just finished reading all these comments and Brian, i'm not sure how you're going to choose. I don't envy you that's for sure. everybody here has a valid need but what strikes me the most is that they all feel that there is someone more in need than they are. I guess i'm trying to describe them all as self less individuals. It makes me smile and makes me happy knowing that in this life, we are are like the Spartan line; whereas we protect the man next to us with our shield and fight for him with our spear...and our brother does the same for us. This website only gets better and better and it keeps drawing the best people to it. I'm very proud to be a Plank Owner and will look through my gear and see what i can give up to those that need it more.
