ARMY MEN'S SOCCER FANS
24 March 2005
Dear Army Soccer Fans and Friends,
ARMY MEN'S SOCCER FANS has recently been formed to provide both material support and encouragement to the Army Men's Soccer program. Although this organization is not officially sanctioned by the Army Athletic Association, it is very much aligned with the goals of West Point in providing the US Army with leaders of character, who often develop this leadership on the "fields of friendly strife." On behalf of the Soccer Coaches at USMA, we have been asked to thank you for your faithful and distinguished support of Army Soccer to date.
This organization has recently become aware that the Army Men's Soccer program is in great need of a video system capable of editing game films for individual or team review and instruction. To address this need and bring Army Men's Soccer to a level equal to other competitive Division I teams, including the Army Women's Soccer team, we would like to purchase a state of the art video and editing system for the team by the end of this Spring season. When informed of the system's capabilities, Head Coach Kurt Swanbeck said:
Our goal is to raise $30,000
by 10 April 2005. We hope that each person contacted will consider
contributing towards this need and any gift is appreciated.
If 100 people could each give a minimum of $300, we would reach
our goal. If you are able to help, please make your check payable
to WP-ORG INC and designate your gift for "Army Men's Soccer
video equipment". Your name and the amount of your contribution
given to this 501c organization will be tracked insuring your
gift will directly benefit Army Men's Soccer for this designated
purpose. A letter of acknowledgement will be provided with appropriate
thanks from the Office of Director of Intercollegiate Athletics
(ODIA). You may go on-line and contribute by credit card at
or mail your contributions to WP-ORG INC, Army Men's Soccer Team,
PO Box 595, Floyd, VA 24091-0595. Updates of the progress of
this fundraiser will be provided every Friday at http://www.west-point.org/academy/soccer-net.
