The Tyler Tribute, Thursday, February 27, 2003 - Page I Taylor Maranell Stationed Overseas In Kuwait With Marine Corps Taylor Maranell, son of Blaine and Cheryl Maranell of rural Tyler, is stationed with the U.S. Marine Corps in Kuwait. Maranell&apos;s address is: Cpl Maranell, Taylor H. USMC RCT-7 A-Co. 3rd LAR BN 3rd Pit UIC 39851 FPO/AP 96426-9851 His mother Cheryl, said he would love to get mail, but that this address must be written exactly correct, or it won't get to him. His unit is in Kuwait as part of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Bri- gade (1 st MEB). Taylor is a Vehicle commander ofa LAV (Light Armored Vehicle). The LAV is the small tank used by the LAR (Light Armored Recon). Each LAV carries one commander, one gunner, one driver, two scouts (positioned in the rear of the tank) and one medic. Their job is to search and gather info and plot coordinates sent back to support personnel. The coordinates are needed if there is war for pin-pointing targets. The LAV is lightly armed. Their best defense in conflict is their speed and maneuverability. Most of the U.S. military are stationed at various bases that have been set up in Kuwait, said Cheryl Maranell. Many of these bases are equipped with internet and phone access, although they vait in line for hours to make a 10 minute call. At present Taylor's Battalion is not allowed to call his parents for se- curity reasons. Thanks to a trained Security Contact Person his par- ents are able to receive reports of his safety, health and needs or want lists. The top want is mail, letters from home. "Whether you know him well or just from this article, they love to hear from home," said his mother. She notes a thank you to Mrs. Petersen and Mrs. Smidt's elementary classes for the letters CPL. TAYLOR MARANELL they have sent to him. "The uncer- tainty of what they face makes it very important to hear from those that are thinking and praying for them," Cheryl Maranell said. "Please keep the cards, letters and packages going. They only receive mail every two weeks, but report it is the most important thing they look forward to. They do thank you for your support," she said. Taylor's BN is mobile so they need to travel light which means no storage space. Keep packages shoe box size or smaller, Cheryl said. Examples of things to include: beef jerky, jerky chew, chap stick, baby or personal wipes (un- scented), eyedrops, Q-tips, Snick- ers, socks or call 247-5849 for a more extensive list. Not having a base also means no showers or hot meals. They live on MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat), packaged meals and wash out of a gallon pail of water once a week ifthey'rc able. Socks become more disposable than washable. If you would like more information or updates please call Cheryl at 247-5849 or e-mail bamtm@yahoo.com. "Thanks for all your support," she added.
