We found this guy from when my mom and I mailed our last rounds boxes! We ended up talking to his brother in line... and told him what we did... he mentioned his brother, we said to email us and we would love to send him stuff... by the time we got home he had talked to his sister-in-law and she had emailed me with information on her husband!!
So here is a bio about our man:
Richie is 25 years old. He joined the Army in March of 2003. He went to basic training at Ft. Jackson, SC and then on to Advanced Individual Training (ait) at Ft. Lee, VA. That is where he and his wife met (She was also in the army for 2 years). After graduating from AIT, he went to Airborne School in Ft. Benning, GA. From there he got stationed at Ft. Bragg where he has been ever since. He got deployed for the first time from November 2003 to April 2004. They got married May 9, 2004. Then they found out they were pregnant with their first child - son Colson - in April of 06. He got deployed for the 2nd time in August, came home for his 2 week R & R at the end of November to December 11. Colson was born Dec. 5. He then was gone until October 23 when he came home again. Now this third deployment (all to Iraq) he left on Dec 4 of 2008. He is a sergeant and has been for about a year now. His MOS (job) is a fuel supply specialist. He is great at his job and is very knowledgeable.
He love soccer!!!!!!!!!!! loves to play and loves to watch - especially the premier league in England. we got hooked when watching the world cup in 06. his favorite team is Manchester United. but he is one to watch all sports - from tennis, golf, to football, baseball, basketball - all of them.
He enjoys watching movies and video games.
He was born in New York, New York - moved to St. Petersburg, FL when he was 6 and would very much love to retire there.
He really enjoys working out - like serious muscle building and likes to read the muscle and mens health magazines....
Our only request that we have is that you try and send out later in the round versus right at the 1st because he is on mission working somewhere else but is supposed to be back by the end of March, but just in case... we want to ship a little later!
