We here at TC love comic books. Lots of folks do and some of those folks happen to be men and women serving our country by putting themselves in harms way through military service. Operation Comix Relief is a home grown effort started by a gentleman by the name of Chris to get comic books to the folks who probably miss them and can use them the most. In his own words:
Hi! My name is Chris Tarbassian and back in March 2003, I started a small home-based “project” which I called Operation Comix Relief. My goal…to get some comic books to my friend Major (then Capt.) Tom Chafe (an Air Force Flight Nurse), so that he could pass them out to the ill and/or wounded soldiers, to provide them with some diversional activities (as well as for him to read) during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Well, it’s still home-based, but my idea has evolved into a much larger operation, and as a result of which, I am now able and willing to send comics to any front line soldier.
If you would like to donate to us, or know of a soldier who you think might like to receive one of our package, please write us at the address provided.
I am sure that they would very much appreciate any donations you could give them. TC will provide them with something and as luck would have it, we’re physically based nearby – maybe a few of us can lend some elbow grease as well.
As a note, we’re not affiliated with OCR in any way. I just happen to think that it’s a great idea and could use some support.
