I had a young 0331 come into the shop last night looking for Boresnakes to take back to the 'Stan with him next week. He told me they were in short supply and the Marines were having trouble getting enough. He wanted 50-65 units. I only had 7 on hand.

Throwing out a heads up if anyone is putting together a care package.

Isnt there something called operation boresnake that is sending them to Iraq and the stahn?

Yeah, it has shipped about 15,000 to date. Evidently, more are needed. As a former 0311, and a father who's son just enlisted in the Corps, I felt the need to stir the pot abit.

I received about 70-80 boresnakes while I was in Iraq from the above site. We had no cleaning gear for the crew serves, and quickly went through the OTIS patches that were issued for the M4's and A4's. I emailed my pops, and friends at work (police department), and received a little white box every time I was able to return to Ramadi. It is a great program. Sadly I already gave the rest of the ones I returned with to my best friend in Afgan.
