Operation Fox and Friends

OPERATION FOX AND FRIENDS

Ok guys, here I sit for the sixth day in St Johns New Foundland, stuck on this beautiful island, where everyday is becoming Ground Hog day…
I did go see the movie “Man of the Year” and it’s funny because it’s a grass roots campaign to get Robin Williams elected to the big ticket, the President of the United States, a suggestion from a member of the audience. A thought occurred to me as I read the comments on my blog from the church ladies out there (oh so pure in thought and mind) and Annie from CT said “Like to see MAJ Bell and MAJ B go on the “Today Show” to promote the calendar just as the other Marines did for their calendar.
Just a thought…”

So here is the mission Church ladies and readers of the Blog…I am charging you with finding the contact for the Today show or Fox and Friends or what ever medium you know nation wide that can put Marty/Brian from AnySoldier.com, Major Pain and myself on television to promote the product and amidst the clamor of certain politicians to pull our guys out ASAP, we can talk about how you can support them etc.
Now like I did in the desert, when I wanted to get Catherine Bell (not my wife) from J.A.G. television fame out to visit us, I threw the glove out into the internet world hoping that someone would know her agent. It worked, a now dear friend of mine Betty, hooked us up and talked her awesome agent into sending us autographed headshots of the actress since she couldn’t make it.
Same deal here, forward my request or link to the SandGram out to your buddies in Hollywood or NYC and as we say in the Marines when the machine gun is on full automatic “We’ll spray and pray” hoping that it will land on the right desk. They can contact us at Thesandgram@yahoo.com or Marty@AnySoldier.com or shepherdaway@yahoo.com to set up a phone con for an interview…
Now the only question is, should Major Pain and I wear our Evening Mess Dress Uniforms or the Dress Blue uniforms (one with my wife)… you decide.
Semper Fi,
Taco

    I understand, but yes he does look quite purty. You’ll just have to trust us on this one:)

    I vote for the dress blues on this project providing we send the guys- at least 12 who can pass the helmit test- to study with Darren of Darren’s dance moves and they do a video calendar with helmits and no hands.We would definitely charge big time for it and it would fix every last problem in this country. If us wommins are happy, the whole county is happy!
    Has my anesthesia worn off yet or am I getting to be a dirty old lady or just normal and admitting it!(Profound question, here)
    And the troops benefit big time.

    Oh, I’ve got to give the Officers Blues one thing over the Enlisted guys. I’m very jealous of the EGAs y’all wear. The solid gold ones are nice for us, but the gold and silver y’all wear looks damned sweet. Other than that, enlisted > officer.

    Okay, I vote blues too. The Dress Mess may confuse them into thinking you’re there to matador some bulls.

  6. By ConcreteBob on Oct 20, 2006

    I vote Dress Blues, but there’s not a thing wrong with a Class A uniform.
    MajPain is gonna take up 75% of the camera shot anyway.

    After supper(applepie he made with crisp apples at the bottom and black coconut on top), I asked about the mail since I couldn’t wait at the mailbox today, and he smiled so I asked if I got free mail and he said “almost” and I knew I got my calendars. They are great. There is so much to see and alot of variety and looking through it gave me a feeling of pride and peace of mind.That’s way better than heavy breathing anyday. A woman with my wisdom knows this.Yes, the wayward neices will get the recon guys and I will get a closer look before they get theirs, but our calendars have class and pride especially my signed in gold one.My husband likes them,too.Thanks again GN, Mama Taco,Nancy, and all the models!

    Marine ” Blues ” would be the #1 choice.
    Bringing along a
    Color Guard …… priceless 🙂

    How about wear the blues (hubba hubba) but have pictures/slides to put on the screen of you in the dust?

    I got my calendars the other day, only one was supposed to be signed and wasn’t. (pout)

    I’ve shown them to the gals at the post office…who are so gracious when I take in box after box of goodies to ship out.

    The office gals at the school have already checked them out. The kitchen staff have checked them out as well!

    I gave one of them to a teacher here at school whose nephew is a 1LT with a stryker unit in Baghdad.

    The calendars are great!

    I had the opportunity to meet Taco, his wife, and the munchkins this summer. Taco’s wife is just as gracious as she is pretty. And the munchkins are adorable!

    MRS455…if you were supposed to get one signed by Brian, look on the inside page where he’s sitting with the kids. And then, look again. The gold ink is very deceiving in certain lighting.

  12. By mrs455 on Oct 21, 2006

    Nope. No signature. It’s no big deal. I’m just glad the calendars finally came!

  13. By Mrs. Diva on Oct 21, 2006

    Mrs455…Marty says it’s a big deal:) Please email me at sdlkirk2@cox.net. Thanks!

  14. By mrs455 on Oct 21, 2006

    Seriously…I appreciate it, but it’s truly no big deal!

    I must be the only person who thinks the Class A Marine uniform is an outstanding uniform. They make you look like a marine. If you are not allowed to wear BDUs then Class A is the way to go.

    After all, the Marines are a Class Act!

    M’kay.

    I vote for the Dress Blues. When a Marine is in his Blues, how could you not do anything he asks?!?!?! *sigh* Besides, if you wore your camies, would the un-informed know you’re a Marine just by looking at you??

    Hopefully we can get something going fast. Wouldn’t it be cool if you guys were on on Veteran’s Day??? Perhaps some kind of campaign could be built around that.

    I’ll make some calls for ya!

    Love the calendar. I was wondering if next year there could be a page for the lost contacts.

    El Taco Grande, I just found your blog via MaryAnn at SA-Germany. Outstanding reading, Sir, and your wife is quite lovely.
