(Last Updated December 1, 2014)





I’m pleased to make a special announcement!

As most of you know, for many years in conjunction with The Eastside Republican Club I’ve coordinated support for thousands of troops deployed in the War on Terror. As the war winds down in Afghanistan most Americans think the war is over. It’s not! We’re currently mailing to Afghanistan for McChord Airmen/women, the 2/3 Cavalry and a Special Forces Team. Additionally, we’re supporting all branches of the service on their yearlong tour at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa. 


During the month of December, The Political Bistro on Seattle Talk Radio Freedom 1590 has selected to honor and support our troops as their “Charity of the Month” – but we know our service members aren’t charity - they’ve earned respect and support from every American! Please consider making your tax deductible donation to let our troops know they aren’t forgotten. It’s easy; go to thepoliticalbistro.com and tap on the Veterans Service Foundation of WA logo or link directly to VSFW  http://www.vsfw.org/vsfw.org/Donate.html to make your donation by credit card, debit card or PayPal. Or you can mail a check to VSFW, 4005 S 277th Place, Auburn, WA 98001-1330. It takes all of us to cover  expenses of needed items as well as the $15.90 postage per flat rate box. The military doesn’t take the care packages to the troops, they must go through USPS.            


Every donation of any size helps!

      On behalf of our dedicated servicemen and women, THANK YOU to The Political Bistro and donors!


And another exciting note … the Seattle Seahawks asked for a local service member to honor at an upcoming home game, if you see a family on the field watching their own 2/3 Cavalry soldier on the big screen, know he’s one we’re supporting!                       Go Seahawks, thank you!






This is likely the last 2014 edition of our e-calendar. We’ll be back in 2015.


Toby Nixon and I wish you peace and joy this Holiday Season

as you celebrate in the religion of your choice.


Lois Gustafson
