Robinson man killed in Iraq

A Robinson man who enlisted in the Army after high school and rose to captain has died in fighting in Iraq.
The Defense Department announced Thursday that Capt. Jason West, 28, was killed by enemy small-arms fire Monday in Ar Ramadi. He was assigned to the 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany.

Army spokesmen refused to release further details on West's military service or how he died. Relatives also declined to comment.

A 2002 graduate of Slippery Rock University in Butler County, West entered the Army's "Green to Gold" program to become an officer, said a former classmate, Capt. Matthew Murray, 28, of Hunker, Westmoreland County.

In a phone interview from Fort Benning, Ga., Murray said West was a mentor to him and other recruits in Slippery Rock's ROTC program because West had advanced to the rank of sergeant in the short time he served before entering college.

"His apartment in college -- it was just wall-to-wall awards from his prior service," Murray said. "He had a full stack (of ribbons) on his chest. It was pretty intimidating."

Ryan Cook, 27, of Fort Mill, S.C., graduated with West from Slippery Rock. They both received degrees in human resources management and spent their final two years in college on several projects, including an academic competition team.

"He was the type of guy who saw the good side of everybody," Cook said. "He talked to everybody as equals."

West was a dedicated and diligent student willing to put everything into a project, Cook said. "It was important to him to make sure it was done right."

Murray and West were members of the ROTC unit's 10-mile running team.

"He was one of those guys -- just physically fit and up for any challenge," he said.

College life was a change of pace for West because he already had served in the Army, and he spent much of his free time skiing, boating and having fun, Murray said.

"He had a million friends. He was just that kind of guy. I do not know anybody who did not like him," he said.

McDermott Funeral Home Inc., of Coraopolis, is handling the funeral arrangements.

Supporters,

I would like to thank each person involved with the upkeep and management of Any Soldier.Com. I hope it continues to be a huge success. I am truly honored to act as a host for all the Worldwide Supporters in this program. Receiving care packages and letters of encouragement brings joy to all of us, and particularly those who don’t get much mail. It means so much to my Soldiers and I that people back in the states and worldwide support us. We all serve our country for a number of reasons, but I would venture to say that we do it because of our deep belief in the American Democracy and Freedom.

I want to close this by again, saying thank you to all of those people who have sent me things for my Soldiers. They were greatly appreciated.

CPT West, Jason

To whom it may concern,
I would like to thank all of you who are involved with America Supports You. It means a lot to all the Soldiers who are serving here, to know that folks back home are behind us. Everyone in Iraq has different experiences and most would say that this has been a positive experience in their lives. It is so difficult to ask for things from total strangers, so excuse me for only putting a few things down. I am representing my shop that focuses on building the Iraqi Security Forces (Iraqi Army/Iraqi Police).   
Some items that we could use is the following:
1. Basic Toiletries (please leave out the razors and shaving cream) most Soldiers in my shop use electric razors. It is much more convenient.
2. ACU t-shirts or Under Armor T-Shirts (much better in the hot summers)
3. Black or Green Combat Socks
4. White Ankle Socks
5. Laundry Detergent and Dryer Sheets
6. DVDs (any kinds)
7. Baby Wipes
8. Gum/snacks

Thanks in Advance
CPT West, Jason M.

IMPORTANT! DO NOT PRINT THIS PAGE!!!

Why? Because this list changes all the time due to unit movements, soldier transfers, or even soldier casualties.
It is also illegal. ALL content on this site is copyright Any Soldier Inc.
DO NOT send any letter or package to a soldier's address unless you check this web site the same day you mail your packages.
Please do not burden the soldiers or the APO/FPO by sending things when the soldiers are gone. If a soldier is not listed here anymore then that soldier's address is expired. Check here often!

Note that some of the units do not have ranks shown on their addresses.
This is done at the unit's request, but ALL of our contacts ARE Servicemembers.

Be sure to change the "ATTN" line to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier if your package is for a female!

DO NOT use this program if you expect or require a reply!
DO NOT expect, or require, a reply from a Soldier!
A supporter said it perfectly, "I mean, these guys and gals have other things on their minds, y’know? Like...oh, STAYING ALIVE?"


(NOTE *): Effective 1 May 2006 this web site added a major layer of security to our contacts' information. This change is necessary to protect our troops and ensure that Any Soldier will continue to operate.
The ONLY changes are that the addresses of our contacts are now hidden and the number of addresses you can get are limited. You may obtain addresses simply by clicking on the link provided and correctly filling out the form, the address will then be emailed to you immediately.

(NOTE **): The number shown is how many times a form was submitted requesting this address. This does NOT necessarily mean that this contact will be helped by that many folks. Rule of thumb is that anything 5 requests or less may in fact be no support at all. No way to tell exactly unless the contact lets you know in his/her update how much support they are getting.

(Note 1.): Note that postage to APO AE and FPO AE (E = Europe) is only to NY where the connection to the APO/FPO (APO = Army Post Office)(FPO = Fleet Post Office) is, or to San Francisco for APO AP and FPO AP (P = Pacific), so you don't pay postage all the way to Iraq/Afghanistan. You might consider picking contacts closer to your mailing area to help cut the cost of mailing. If you live on the East Coast, pick "AE", West Coast, pick "AP", Midwest, well...uh, Thank You for your Support! ;)

New with us (December 2005) you might notice "APO AA" and "FPO AA". This is for units in the Caribbean/South America. Normally. However, due to the nature of some units they may be in Iraq but have an address showing "FPO AA". Mail addresses to "AA" goes out of Miami, Florida.

(Note 2.): Why are military addresses weird? There isn't a street address or city. What gives? Correct, just about everything about the military is weird to civilians. Military units are very mobile, they move around a lot, often they even become part of another unit. The APO (Army Post Office) and FPO (Fleet Post Office) assign APO and FPO numbers as needed, they are NOT static. An APO/FPO number may be for a large unit, or a location. An APO/FPO number for Baghdad today may be for Frankfurt tomorrow.

(Note 3.): The "Expect to not mail past" date is only an approximate and is one of the least reliable things on this web site. It is because of this that you must check often before you send anything to this unit. There are a few reasons this date is not reliable, to include: it IS the Military, we ARE dealing with the APO/FPO/DPO. The only thing that does not change in the military is that things will change. PLEASE NOTE that a Contact is dropped off our active list 30 days PRIOR to their date leaving to help avoid mail bouncing.

(Note 4.): (Removed for OPSEC reasons)

(Note 5.): The lines, "Contact with approx number of Soldiers:" and "Approx how may Female Soldiers:" have NOTHING to do with unit strength. They are approximately how many other Troops the Contacts believe they can get packages to. This helps you understand that you should not send 100 packages to someone who only deals with 10 Troops.
Don't forget that if your package is for a female Soldier, be sure to change "ATTN: Any Soldier®" to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier".

( Note 6.): This is simply where the unit this contact is from. This is NOT a true picture of the folks in the unit as most all units are made up of folks from all over the United States.) A "Composite Unit" is one made up of other units and is usually temporary for a particular mission.

( Note 7.): Updated APO/FPO/DPO mailing restrictions> courtesy of Oconus.com (gone now) (Note: About Restriction "U2": "U2 - Limited to First Class Letters", Box "R" is for retired personnel that live overseas and are still authorized an APO/FPO box. Their address will be something like Box 3345R. Doubt you will see anything like that in Afghanistan or Iraq or ...)(Please Note: Sometime in August 2013, Oconus.com changed the code on their page and our form doesn't work with them anymore, so a link to their page is the best we can do, sorry.)
