U.S. soldiers need your powdered creamer

I had a curious mass e-mail hit my inbox this afternoon from a communications professional named Ned. Usually his e-mails are filled with different information on the communications industry, job postings, and some comic relief. But today, there was an odd request -- U.S. soldiers are in need of powdered creamer:

Through my colleague [Gregg] in Dallas comes this appeal for assistance that I think we all can support.  Tom Clementson is a senior advisor for public affairs at the ISAF Joint Command in Afghanistan. Like any red-blodded American, he likes his coffee.  But due to the remote location, Tom and his colleagues find it hard to find powdered creamer for their coffee.  He reports:

It's less of a necessity than a true comfort item but any flavored creamers of the powedered variety. We have the basics here but unlike most of the larger U.S. bases, our NATO base is very Euro.

Again, thanks so much. Address is below.

So, I am asking my fellow "nedworkers" to to grab some non-dairy

powdered coffee creamer and package it for shipment to Tom at the above address.  

If you don't have any coffee creamer handy, because you are like me and take your Navy coffee straight, then Tom says:  "The team will be thrilled and even if people just want to drop a postcard to The IJC Public Affairs Team.  We'd be very happy with that."

So what do you say, Blazers? How about a flash mob of kindness, coffee creamer edition?
