Updated 18-Sep: Welcome to the Schriefer Blog, my name is Tavis Schriefer. Recently, my wife Jill and I raised money to supply driFIRE shirts to every soldier in Apache Company of the 1-501st Parachute Infantry Regiment. We were successful in raising over $6500 and we would like to thank everyone for all their support to make this happen.

driFIRE Shirts - UPDATE

Here's an update on our efforts with the driFIRE shirts. We have raised just over $6,600 so far and are working towards our goal of $8,000.

Thanks to Robert Wilonsky from the Dallas Observer for his mention in his blog Unfair Park. This is exactly they type of help we need to get our word out and help us to reach our goal. (see the article here)

As many of you know, we have previously shipped enough shirts to the 3rd Platoon. They have received them and they are working out GREAT!! We recently shipped 2 shirts per soldier to 1st, 2nd and 4th Platoons, but we are hoping to reach our goal so that we can at least send them another shirt each. While they may wear the same shirt for four days at a time, it probably feels pretty good to have a clean one.

Money continues to trickle in, and we appreciate every bit of it. If you haven't already, please share with your friends. If anyone has any ideas how to help get to our $8K goal, please let me know.

Thanks, Tavis
