The IPMS/USA initiative was established to provide model kits, supplies and reference materials to our servicemen and women serving in combat zones, recovering in hospitals, and rehabilitating in specialized facilities. The "Support the Troops" program is expanding into other areas as well. Some local programs take place in USO facilities and some are centered around active duty personnel or are scattered at bases across the country. Each local program is organized and administered by an individual or IPMS Chapter that is ready, willing, and able to put your donated items to good use.
Steve Broughall is our newly appointed Military & Veterans Services Liaison Officer and will be coordinating all activities between IPMS and Jon Emery's Models 4 Troops effort (which is a standalone organization supported by and with strong ties to us).
You may also report any issues or problems to the 1st Vice President, Phil Peterson.
