On behalf of JR4OT, Inc., thank you to all who contributed so far, whether monetarily or with equally appreciated words of support, to the "Comics For Troops" effort.
As a result of these contributions and the generous pricing of 50% off the cover price, made available by DDP Publishing, the $854 collected to date for this specific effort enabled a purchase today of 432 issues, (72 full six-issue sets) of The Jericho "Season 3" Comic Series. These comics will be shipped to Iraq and Afghanistan via Staten Island Project Homefront, to be enjoyed and shared by our deployed service men and women .
Although Staten Island Project Homefronts next packing date for overseas shipments is not until December 29, 2009, we felt with today being the release of the first issue, coupled with the spirit of the Thanksgiving Holiday, there was no better time to place this initial order.
Contributions will continue to be accepted at www.comicsfortroops.com with periodic orders placed to coincide with SIPH scheduled packing dates.
With great thanks to those that serve our country, our thanks to you for your support of this effort thus far, and thanks to DDP for enabling twice as many opportunities to provide a little comic relief overseas, we wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: Comics For Troops/Staten Island Project Homefront
Thank you again for your time on the telephone this morning and for the generosity that you and DDP have given to better the efforts that will benefit our deployed military. As discussed, we are purchasing 432 issues of the Jericho Comic that will comprise 72 complete subscription sets of 6 issues each. From your generous discount that will provide a $1.98 cost per issue ($11.88 per set), I calculate our total to be $855.36.
The assistance and pricing generosity that you provided to JR4OT with the "Comics For Troops" effort will be directly instrumental in bringing some temporary relief and escape for our deployed military.
The comics can be shipped directly to Staten Island Project Homefront, Attention: Deborah Parsons, 2205 Richmond Rd. , Staten Island , NY 10306
The next packing date at SIPH is December 29, 2009 (to be shipped overseas on January 7, 2010), so, if it's more cost effective, as the issues are released, they can be held and shipped together to arrive just prior to that. Should later dates be needed to accommodate later release dates, the next packing/deadline dates are Feb. 9th then March 4th.
We will continue to accept contributions at www.comicsfortroops.com and will forward additional orders to you as they are received to be included in the next planned shipping cycle.
On behalf of Jericho Rangers for Our Troops, Staten Island Project Homefront, and Jericho fans, thank you for continuing the story we all love so much and for your support of this effort.
You have our utmost gratitude.
President, JR4OT, Inc.
