email the troops

Email the U.S. Troops. Your message will be forwarded to the crews of the USS Antietam, USS Comstock, USS John Paul Jones and USS Princeton. Hundreds of people have sent messages of support since NBC 7/39 began our "Help from the Home Front" campaign. The ships can receive e-mail, but outgoing e-mail is severely restricted for security reasons. Because of this, Marines and sailors cannot answer your messages. But NBC 7/39 has received word from several ships that the outpouring of support from San Diego is greatly appreciated. The e-mail below is an example:

I am a MARINE on the USS Comstock. I just wanted to tell you that we really appreciate the support that you are giving us back home. I am very proud to be where I am at and having the chance to show the world that America will not let this terrorist act go unpunished. I will to do what ever it takes to see the job through. I just wanted to tell you that your e-mails are very morale-building and that it reminds us that we are not out here for nothing. The USA is the best country to live in and, if need be, to die for. Semper Fi to you all and God bless the USA. Thank you again for writing.

From Donna:

For those who would like to send letters and cards of condolences, flowers, poems, thoughts, and well wishes, this will console others and help to heal ourselves.

I, like many others I'm sure, would like to send condolence cards and well wishes, to the heroic Firemen, Policemen, volunteers and victims of the New York City, Pentagon, and Pennsylvania, tragedies. I just didn't know where to send the cards.

Through my search on the Internet I found many places to donate money and blood, and found lists of the victims names, but found little information on where to send cards. I didn't find a "master address list" of the fire and police stations in New York, a "master address list" of the men and women that are involved in the search and rescue, or of the people among the missing.

So, I decided to start one for those of us who would like to send letters and cards of condolences, flowers, poems, thoughts, and well wishes. This will console others and help to heal ourselves. This information will be useful to the many Americans who would like to send cards but just don't know where to address them.

Thank you and may God Bless America,

Donna, California, (Sept 17, 2001)

  2. Michael Tinley is one of the 292 employees from the Marsh & McClennan group that are confirmed missing and presumed dead at the World Trade Center.

    Michael Tinley was born Jan 12, 1945 to a prominent family in Council Bluffs, Iowa. He is the second oldest of eight children and a graduate of Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. He has two daughters, Lisa and Jenna, and was a former California (Palos Verdes Estates and Redondo Beach) resident who lived in Dallas and traveled, as vice president for the company, twice a month to his New York office.

    The last anyone heard from Michael was around 7:45 on Sept 11 when he called his youngest sister, Suzanne, from the 100th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center where he was preparing for a meeting. He spoke frequently to his sister Suzanne and his 7 year old nephew Henry, who live in a fifth story loft in the TriBeCa neighborhood that boasted a clear view of the 110 story twin towers standing just seven blocks away. "I can see you Henry," Michael joked that morning from the conference room on the north side of the building. "I am looking down on your apartment and waving at you."

    Almost an hour later, hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 slammed into the north face of the tower, reportedly somewhere between the 96th and 103rd floors. Condolences for the Michael's daughters, family, and friends, may be sent to:

Flight 93 - Pennsylvania

Three courageous men, one flight

Jeremy Glick (31), Mark Bingham (31), and Tom Burnett Jr (38), are Heroes in every sense. According to cell phone calls to loved ones made from the plane, they knew two planes crashed in NY and they knew they were going to die. But... these three men decided to do something about it. "If we're going to die, there's three of us and we're going to do something about it." They did do something and because of their courageous efforts, hundreds, if not thousands, of lives were saved.

  1. Jeremy Glick (31) was a 6'1", 220-pound former judo and wrestling champion who liked to ski and scuba dive. He met his wife, Lyz, in a 9th grade biology class at Saddle River Day School in northern New Jersey. They were later crowned Prom King and Queen. In an interview his wife said, "We said 'I love you' a thousand times. Then he said, 'I need to know, are they crashing planes into the World Trade Center?"

    Lyz finds strength in having had the opportunity to say good-bye to Jeremy and in an interview she said, "Jeremy said, 'I want you to be happy in your life. I will be happy for you. You need to live your life.'" The sad irony is that Jeremy didn't belong on Flight 93. Jeremy is also survived by 3 month old daughter, Emerson. Cards may be sent to his business address, Vividence (Vividence also has a web site with more info.)

  2. Mark Bingham (31) was a 6'5", 200-plus-pound national championship rugby player while an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley. He owned his own PR firm, The Bingham Group, with offices in New York and San Francisco. His mother, Alice, takes pride in knowing her son was a hero and is "Honored to have been his mother."

  3. Tom Burnett Jr. (38): According to his sister, Mary, the 6'2, 210-pound Tom Brunett was, "A quick thinker, very strategic." Tom was quick thinking that day too. He phoned his wife from the plane, gave his flight number, and told her to call the authorities. Tom learned of the horrifying news about the towers when he called his wife back a second time.

    He was also thinking strategically when he asked what the probability was of there really being a bomb on the plane. He supplied critical informatiom regarding the hijackers. "They've knifed a guy. They say there's a bomb."

    Tom, a practicing Catholic, was a senior vice president and chief operating officer of Thoratec Corp. He is survived by his wife, Deena, and 3 daughters, twins Madison and Halley, and Anna.

send paper cards

From Pam:

Send "Paper" Cards and Letters of Support and Encouragement by US Mail to the Workers at The WTC

Please send "Paper" cards and letters of support and encouragement to the Firemen, Policemen, Search and Rescue Dog Teams, Port Authority, Fire/Police/Emergency Dispatchers, Hospitals, Local Unions, Schools, Medical Examiners, etc. at the WTC in New York. I have created a web site which lists the street addresses of the fire departments and police departments and many other organizations, schools, agencies, etc. in NYC so that we can send "real paper" cards and letters by US Mail to the workers there to give them encouragement and show our support. Please check it out and send as many cards as you can.

I created this site because after the Oklahoma City Bombing the Firemen, Policemen and other Volunteers spoke of how much they appreciated all of the cards and letters of support they received from the American public. Many told of coming from the recovery site exhausted and dejected and finding hundreds of cards. They spoke of how they would sit and read them while resting before going back to work. Each and every one of them expressed how those cards uplifted their spirits and renewed their hope. T hose cards helped to give them the strength to tackle the horrible job ahead of them.

The Americans that are working in this horrible situation could really use our support and encouragement right now. So many are being very badly affected by this and these cards and letters will really help.

Please pass this on to people on your e-mail lists. The more people this goes to the more cards will go out.

Thank you in advance to all of you who send out cards or letters and all of you who pass this on. I know these people will be most appreciative.

Wishing You All The Best
